  • Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!

    We are a family of Christians, from Kiev, Ukraine. With prayer and gratitude to our Lord Jesus Christ, we ask that you share this small request with whomever you consider capable.

    Our sister has successfully applied to University of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. She was granted a partial scholarship to cover non-resident`s taxes, but still needs to cover her tuition and living expenses. Our family is self-sufficient in terms of finances, but neither we nor people we know, are capable of supporting such large expenses.

    Brothers and sisters. Maybe someone out there is looking for an opportunity to support a worthy fellow Christian in achieving a worthy life goal. The time we have is only till March 28th. Maybe, you feel like God put in your heart to help our sister, to be her sponsor for her studies, we are willing to provide you with all information needed at a more personal level (Skype, Facebook, or whatever you prefer).

    Regardless, we urge you to pray and spread this to fellow Christians. Even one word can be the difference between our Lord’s answer.

    About our sister:

    Veranika is twenty one years old, third child, has two elder brothers, a younger brother and a younger sister. Our sister has a good character. She is kind, sociable, diligent in work and study, strong-willed, and loves children. She has the ability to communicate with people of different backgrounds and nature. Veranika was born in a family of Christians, accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized when she was firm in her decision and understanding to live her life in service to Christ. She is a person with no bad habits and leads a life according to Bible and our Lord’s word.

    She has graduated from school with top marks (she would be the valedictorian of her year, if such a practice existed in Ukraine) as all in our family has. Going into a university, she went for Philology in English (aside from me and dad, all of our family has/ will receive a diploma in English Philology), winning a scholarship from government to cover her tuition fees for the bachelors course. While studying by correspondence (currently finishing her fourth year), she teaches children the English language. She works with children that is totally different from what people usually experience in their personal life and easily finds the right approach to each of them. They love her dearly and show great growth in studying English, noted both through their marks and acknowledged by parents and grandparents of said children.

    About her need:

    In total, tuition fee, insurance, books, and visa will be 13000$ for the first year to be able to study. However, to pursue M.A. she needs 2 years. We believe that if Lord will provide for her first year, He will provide for the second.

    With gratitude and blessings, God’s loyal children from Ukraine.
  • My health has snow balled out of control. I lived in a house that had mold (unknowingly) and had to move suddenly. I was having a reaction just standinv in my front yard. I had to get rid of many things and wipe down everything i owned in micro ban while wearing a resporator and hazmat suit. Well i have to claim bank ruptcy bc i was not prepared for that disaster and my health is still suffering. I had vdry bad asthma i was on 5 different med including prednisone just so i could breathe. I weaned off all those as soon as i could and was fine for a few months. Well, i found out now that o have severe sleep apnea. The doctors thought i had MS {thank the Lord i dont} but ive had to recieve cpap treatment. I thought i was recovered for my asthma but its come back. Im back on prednisone inhailers nasal spray singilair clairatin :( not only that ive gained 40 pounds. I have 3 kids and im a full time student. This last year has been a job type of year. The only thing different is that i still have my kids and husband. Thats the most importatant. They have been seeing me struggle with my health and its been stressful on them too. I have gotten very depressed latley. On top of all of this i forgot to add that my daughter who was five a the time was strangled and molested by a person while staying at my moms house. It was very unexpected and a truma to my daughter and all of us. Im blessed shes still alive. I had him put in jail but he took a plea and is out. He was taken back into my mothers house. I got angry with her. I feel sad and betrayed. Im not speaking with her now. My oldest sister in texas is mad at me bc im upset with my mom. It was her son who did this to my daughter. She’s not talking to me. I moved to another town and i have failed to make any new friends bc of the storm im in. Even if i did i couldnt jusy blurt all this out. I feel sad and alone. Im not sure why all of this has happend but im having a hard time overcoming all of this. I feel stuck in the mud. My heart is broken and im not well. This is me pouring my heart out to a phone screen barley able to text bc my eyes are flooded with tears. This is my only outlet bc i have noone i can trust to talm with. I guess im here to ask for you all to pray for my family and my baby daughter to all get through this and for my health to come back. I pray but i feel like god has left me. I know its not true but just when i think thinv are going to vet better they get worst. Thank you for reading my request. Its very hard to let all this out. I need help i need God to help i need others to be praying with me in this deep dark valley.
  • May God help us in our endeavors to find peace and harmony. We need God’s help in finding compassion, trust and patience to live peacefully together. May we give thanks to Our Lord for mercy and all that is provided for us.
