Evghenii had an opportunity to be one of the keynote speakers at the city-wide conference for men in the capital city of Chisinau. The conference was organized by Voice of Truth church together with several other churches and ministries. The all-day even has brought together 230 men from couple dozen churches from the city and from towns across the country.
The event speakers came from various backgrounds with one goal - to address the issue of disappointment in life. Evghenii spoke on dealing with disappointed in yourself and how God's perspective on us changes everything. When disappointment is caused by things that are beyond our control and choices, it is the value God places on us that can allow us to be men that God intended for us to be.
Pastor Vitali P. has been the main organizing force behind the conference and also concluded the conference by sharing about the true source of strength and how to continually live by being connected to this source.
Valeri G. is a member of the parliament in Moldova and spoke about dealing with disappointment in ministry. Mihai M. from the Christian university shared about times when there is a temptation to be disappointed in God.
The time was filled with fellowship, worship and opportunities to pray with and for each other.
As a result of the ministry of two Moldova Bible Seminary graduates (Vitaly and Natalie B.) to hearing-impaired for over ten years now, in the end of 2016 summer, a group of hearing-impaired teens came to Kishinev Bible Church. This family learned the sign-language and has been ministering to the hearing-impaired community reaching them with the Gospel message
In the end of the last summer, Ivan, a dynamic young man came to know the Lord and asked to be baptized at Kishinev Bible Church. He began to grow and share his new-found faith with his friends. A number of them began to come to the church. Through God’s providence, another young believer joined the team serving the community since her parents are hearing-impaired. She began to help translate worship services and with this joint effort, over this last summer the group has grown to ten-fifteen visitors on Sundays. Three young people got baptized in September 2017.
This month the ministry has celebrated one year anniversary of outreach with a special event. This is an amazing way of outreach the Lord has given Kishinev Bible Church. The Lord continues to bless the wonderful group of people and we are blessed with them as part of our body in Chisinau.
During the last four weeks Evghenii was invited to come and present the reasons for the existance of God to about forty-five high-schoolers, that are new this season at the club ministry locted in the northern part of the city. Every Friday night, Evgheni would teach on a new aspect of the reasons for God and then spend about an hour connecting with the teens answering their questions. It was wonderful to have the opportunityt to speak into the lives of upcoming generation. In addition, it was wonderful to see three of current Moldova Bible Seminary students ministering through this wonderful outreach.
The ministry of YoungLife clubs in Moldova is led by two of Moldova Bible Seminary graduates Feodor and Elena. They graduated in different years and have been part of the ministry for more then ten years. They have developed the ministry to several clubs in the country and have been working hard to reach the high-schoolers with the message of the Gospel. As MBS graduates, they are an example of how God uses MBS as He raises nationals to reach their own country with the Gospel message. It is an honor to have such graduates.
After one of the clubs the Good News was presented and a challenge to consider the relationship with God was given. A young man named D., came up and said that he wants to accept Christ’s gift. Feodor and I had an honor of leading this young man to the feet of Jesus as he prayed. One of MBS students, who lives in the same part of town, has committed to help this young man find a way to church and came with him on Sunday to the worship service. It is amazing to see various generations of MBS students serve together to accomplish the great commission.
