KBC Elderly Ministry joined hands with The Compass Church in outreach toward many seniors in the neighborhood where Kishinev Bible Church actively serves. Many of those retired are bound to their homes and have no social lives. KBC came up with an idea to organize such events where believers and unbelievers may come together, have fun, have a meal and hear the Good News.

Bingo! Victories that bring joy.
Fannin Terrace Baptist Church is the strategic partner of Kishinev Bible Church. As part of the partnership a team from the church comes to serve alongside the Moldovans to reach out in Urban Project sharing the love of God with children through VBS, teens through sports clubs and elderly through visitation program. This year the team was joined by Redeemer Church in Midland, TX. The weeklong outreach has been very fruitful touching hundreds of people with the Good News.
The elderly in Moldova are usually among the most vulnerable people in economic and social terms. Over the last several years Kishinev Bible Church has develped an outreach ministry with a desire to respond to the economic, spiritual and emotional needs of elderly in the community. To date the number of elderly reached every years is aproximatly three hundred and fifty.
In April, together with Crestview Baptist Church (Midland, TX) along with grocery deliveries to the homes of those in need a special event was organized to create an environment of fellowship. It included food, games as well as spiritual encouragement during this seminars. Many of the attendees have not been to such an event for overt decades. The goal is to make such event a regular occurrence at KBC where the Gospel can be freely shared and genuine Christian fellowship experienced.
After the meal prepared and served by KBC and Crestview volunteer team the speakers presented Biblically founded lessons designed specifically for the elderly.
A game of Bingo with gifts and special prizes and fellowship concluded the wonderful day designed to bring smiles to the faces of one of the generation left alone in the aftermath of the breakdown of the Soviet "empire."
KBC has had a blessing to provide food and share the gospel with a group of thirteen retired educators who have since the fall of USSR been pushed to poverty with extremely low fixed income. One of the elderly ladies who has come to know the Lord was part of this group. She now desires to lead her friends to the Lord and is very active in the church in an effort to take the Gospel to them. We are blessed to be able to be a part of their lives.
