Welcome to our site!

We are a small congregation located in southern Ukraine. Through this site we hope to keep you posted of the happenings here in Nikopol, as well as introduce you to our congregation. This site is intended as a precursor to a more comprehensive website in the future, but until then don't be a stranger, and feel free to leave your comments!

Americans arriving today

   Our American team gets to nikopol this morning. Pray for this session. They have spent a lot of money. We have several advertisements, but haven't got the same response as two years ago pray that it will do better. One newspaper want to interview us. Maybe this will give us some publicity.

Finally, an invitation

   After a number of problems trying to get our invitations to change our visa, we have finally been successful. For some reason, Nina had more  pull with the same man that gave us a hard time a few weeks ago.   Eugene and I went several weeks ago, and the same person gave us a different story than the previous time. One that I knew was not correct legally.  this time however Eugene, and I did not go in, and Nina got the approval immediately. Now I will have to leave the country at the end of english lessons as my 3 months will expire on the 12th.

English lessons quickly approaching

We will begin english lessons in two weeks. Our team is a little smaller, but we will be arranging the schedule to make it more available to people who work during the day. hopefully, we will attract a more diverse group. John Van Voorhis will be doing an evening lecture. this session, we will set a lower limit on the age. For those students who are too young, we will offer a summer session for six weeks.

pardon the interruption

We moved to a new apartment at the end of Febrruary and found out that we do not have a telephone. we have also found out that we do not have telephone numbers available in our area (I know that sounds funny, but you just have to know ukraine). bear with us.
