Stas Karpenko — UFA Bible Ministries

Nor scrip…, neither two coats

When Jesus was sending his disciples to minister in Mt 10, he told them to go and concentrate on the ministry, not on things. The idea that God provides for our needs when we serve Him is seen in several places. We can see that when God’s people are being brought out of Egypt to the promised land. They wore their shoes for 40 years! The matter of quality or absence of it fully depends on God. The same idea is seen in the book of Haggai. When people were building their houses instead of rebuilding the temple, they were working to put the wage into “a bag with holes.” We can say that the matter of satisfaction also depends on God. We have many stories to tell about that. We have witnessed His provision in our ministry all those years.

ESL classes

We said our goodbyes to our students and recessed till September. Several of them came to our church’s picnic last month. Please pray for preservation of the souls till fall. From our experience we know that Satan can steal those souls during a long summertime.

Easter & Summer Family Camp

Easter service went well on May 5. The attendance was good and many accepted the Word warmly. Our church’s picnic, though, was later than planned due to weather. A few of our students from the ESL school were able to come. For them it was their first time interacting with Christians.
Our Summer Family Camp is planned for July 23-30 . Pray that everything planned to do and all who planned to come may do unhindered. Pray for our budget so that we may meet the ends of the camp needs. We have a gap of $600 to fill.

Friends and Family

Lilya’s father had his speech resumed partially. That is a great miracle for all our Muslim relatives as his condition has been stably bad for two years. We praise God for that! Also, Christina successfully passed and Tim is currently passing all the exams in English and local programs.
Thank you for your prayer and your love for us.
