Ministry at Play
After our rainy Tuesday, Wednesday dawned cool and windy, but turned sunny just in time for a ministry with Calvary Chapel in a playground near Pastor Viktor's apartment. They had never tried this before, but it proved to be a big hit with the kids and parents that frequent this area. They plan to have these regularly with their own students and youth, building trust in their neighborhood and paving the way for more ministry in the weeks to come.
In the afternoon and evening, VISION participated in a Sports Center ministry with the Calvary Chapel group. Several visitors joined in, some who had been invited at the park on the previous day.
Two young men, both Arabic speaking (and probably Muslim) students
taking Russian at the nearby university, were invited in from outside
the sports facility. We had a chance to teach them some ping-pong, and
they stayed through VISION's songs and dramas. (One is visible in the photo below, being shown a printed program by one of the Ukrainian women. We trust that seeds were
planted leading to better understanding of Jesus Christ and His
sacrifice for sin. Pray with us and the Calvary Chapel members that
these two young men will come back to the regular worship services and other events held
at that same facility.
Thanks for sending us and supporting us!
