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!

Zhenya into hospital

It's nothing serious, but Zhenya, the older man I've been studying with has to go into a neurological hospital.  It's a part of the process of him being approved for disability.  it may take several months for the process to be finished, but he should only be in the hospital for 3 weeks of that process.

3rd Try!!

Everything went fine in our last trip to Moldova.  Our visas were processed within one day for no extra charge, and we found a corruption free customs point. When we started the process for local registration, we found out that everyone in the family needs the invitation and religious visa. This will not be cheap, of course, but probably in the next month and a half we will have to go.  The office in our regional capital had earlier informed us that my religious visa would cover the whole family, but that is not the case.

2nd Try

  Today, we are going to Moldova again to try to get the religious visa.  Hopefully the invitation is done properly this time, and we are praying for a better trip across the border (not one that costs $300)!
