Fraser Valley Group - May 2016 | Hungry For Life

May 2016: ,

The Fraser Valley Group travelled to Nikopol, Ukraine to work alongside Pastors John and Nadya Bokoch, helping with their ongoing work through the Nikopol Baptist Church. The team hosted banquets for widows, poor families, handicapped adults and children. They also held a marriage conference, a picnic and visited the Rehab center. In addition to the banquets and events, the team distributed blankets, food and hygiene hampers to assist individuals in need. Home visitations were a key part of the trip as they brought encouragement to those who are unable to make it to the banquets.

Additional items accomplished: 
  • Completed 30 home visits
  • Hosted 9 banquets for 1020 people
  • 1045 food hampers distributed
  • 1045 hygiene hampers distributed
  • 140 children packs distributed
  • Visited Shevchenko’s foster home
  • 1 session of biblical training of 25 church men
  • 1 session for about 50 married couples
  • An afternoon visit/BBQ at the Men’s Rehab place, joined with about 10 women from the woman's rehab centre nearby

Road Trip of Home & Village Gathering

The routine of a great breakfast and devotion led by Sig never gets taken for granted around here. Today we looked at how Job was righteous before God and what that means for us today. To think a book written 4000 years ago has so much relevance is such a “God thing!”
