It's all about Him.

Sharon and I recently enjoyed a beautiful presentation of The Messiah at Duke Chapel with our friends, the Bryants and the Clements. Even the hard wooden pews couldn't completely distract from this sacred experience and the reminder of the reason why we do what we do every day. It's all about Jesus, our Savior and Messiah.

We are grateful, so grateful for the privilege of serving those pastors and churches God has given us throughout Europe. Thank you from our deepest hearts for your financial and prayer support that allows us to continue in this ministry! God be praised for His grace and goodness!

We invite you to continue your support and partner with us in 2017 for the equipping, evangelizing and empowering of the Russian-speaking churches and communities we serve in Europe. If you have questions, I would love to answer them and share the work God has given us to do in this season.

Please continue to pray for the Russian-speaking believers in Europe to be strengthened and bold in sharing their faith and in walking with Jesus Christ. And pray for us as we trust God with our days and His guidance.

We love and appreciate you all!

Comments from our recent parenting conference in Warsaw...

"Thanks to the seminar on child rearing, I realized how great a responsibility the Lord is putting on me as a mother. First, raising them in the fear of the Lord, second, raise them in obedience to parents, and thirdly, to be submissive to my non-believing husband. I already see some changes in my family. God bless you!"
--Olga
 
"We appreciate everything you did for our small church. During this seminar our young family was established more and more in what our parents told us and what they teach us in parenting. Thank God for this unity in understanding the Scripture. For Denys was valuable the truth, that we have kids only for a short time. And the most important thing we should teach them is obedience to our God. For me it was the truth, that not my words but my life and my attitudes mostly will shape and form my child. This seminar was precious for us."
--Denys and Olena

"We want to thank you Hal & Cecilie Hays, Patrick Sullivan and Hleb Yermakou for all your work you do for God and your service for us because we as parents and Christians want to bring up our children in the way the Bible teaches. After this particular seminar we have got clear and strong position on this essential topic. Every evening Arthur reminds himself Pat's words that "the work begins at home when you come back home from work". We are looking forward to our next meeting. May God abundantly bless you and your families."
--Arthur, Natalie & little Emilie
 
"This was the third seminar that EII had in our church in Warsaw. I need to mention that this event (especially the child rearing seminar) had a very strong impact on our church as a whole and on each person in particular. Praise the Lord! As I talk with our congregation, I see that the people are starting to change their approach to raising children. They were very impressed with such teaching as consistency, unity between the two parents, responsibility of both parents before the Lord. We are really looking forward to your next visit!"
--Sasha Illyn, Pastor
 

For whatever the years will bring, we will be truly thankful.
