A group of over eighty young leaders gathered at KBC ministry center to learn about the way to have a civilized conversation with the secular world. The speaker was Dr. Thomas Woodward who is the president of C.S. Lewis Society (est. 1975 in Princeton University). Dr. Woodward is also editor of the Apologetics.org. Based on the life of "Jack" and his idea of the radio program that later became the world renowned "Mere Christianity" the seminars were an amazing opportunity to grow and learn.
Part of the KBC Ministries vision is discipleship and preparation for ministry of the young leaders who will be changing their class-rooms and workplaces wi the message of the Gospel. It is a blessing to partner with Kishinev Bible Church and Moldova Bible Seminary on these special events designed to disciple the emerging generation.
During the Rethink Week organized by the IFES in the north of Moldova (city of Balti), over 120 young people from the university gathered together to hear the presentation on lines of argumentation to demonstrate a case for Intelegent Design. From astrophysics to geology to microbiology the evidence points to the grreat mind and the Designer.
Dr. Woodward and Evghenii Sologubenco served together and in adition to the lecture format had an amazing opportunity to interact with numerous groups of students sharing the good news. This was an evangelistic event and we are thankful to International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (Intervarsity) for the opportunity to share.
The expectation was to have approximately sixty-seventy students come to the event. It was a pleasant surprise to see over hundred and twenty people show up. It was reported that by the end of the outreach at least eight have given their lives to Christ.
Kishinev Bible Church in partnership with Moldova Bible Seminary had the opportunity to offer a series of talks on Intelligent Design for the churches and believers from across the city of Chisinau (Moldova). The seminars focused on the problems with the theory of evolution and Darwinism in particular. These problems have come to light with the new discoveries in the area of DNA and Epigenetics. Dr. Thomas Woodward is a leading historian of Intelligent Design in the world and author of a number of books on the subject-matter. The seminars offered brought together over 130 students, ministers and people who wanted a fresh look. They learned about the conversation taking place even now in science community about the limits of Darwinian theory. Dr. Woodward shared about the evidence from DNA and complexity on molecular level that point to an Intelligent Designer of life.

One of the new areas of our ministry is branching out to countries in Eastern Europe. The city of Iasi (Romania) is the closest large city to the capital of Moldova. It is a desire of KBC in partnership with Radiance ministries to establish a Worship Recourse Center in Moldova that will become the hub of teaching and resources for the local churches. As part of this effort worship leaders from three churches in the city of Iasi came to gather at the invitation of Rhema church. This seminar set a stage for a conference in 2020 to reach out to the entire region.
It is a huge blessing to see the ministry of KBC Ministires serve the body of Christ in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
This is a story of one of Moldova Bible Seminary students. Stasya is one of the teens, who came to know the Lord through our Project 127. Now Staya serves with Young Life as one of the leaders and spearheading their “Capernaum" ministry - an outreach to special needs teens. Stasya is in her last year at Moldova Bible Seminary.
In spite of the hardships that Stasya faced in her young age, the Lord found her and is now effectively using her in the ministry on Young Life Moldova. Below are some photos from a camp Young Life Moldova organized this last summer. A number of KBC teens volunteered had a chance to serve as Stasya led.
The highlight of September was a launch of Vulcanesti Bible Church. On the third Sunday of September the church began to hold weekly worship services. Up until now, the van could hold only nine people total who would travel three hours one way to attend the church. The first service had just under twenty worshipper. For the last several month the number varied and there are about thirty gathering regularly. We are now working on more ways we can come alongside this new church plant.
The blessing of connection with the Christian Center for Social Orphans is that a number of the graduates who came to know the Lord play various music instruments and sing. Te church has a dedicated group that leads in worship of our Lord. Please be in prayer for this new group of believers who desire to reach their town for Christ.
One of the highlights for the junior-high kids is the camp experience. During the month of July we had an opportunity to partner with First Baptist Church (Boerne, TX) to organize a camp for over sixty kids. Many of these kids come from homes with at least one, but ofter both parents gone as migrant workers. It is during the camp time we have an amazing opportunity to live the Gospel before them, to build a relationship and have a chance to share the Good News.
Here is a short video with testimonies built to help share the experience from one of these camps.
In the last week of June, "Imago Dei" church has organized an outreach to children together with a team from Community Bible Church (San Antonio, TX). Every day the number of children grew and the events had to spill to the outside of the the church walls.
