A while back the political crisis in the country of Ukraine was front page news. But the crisis there has been overshadowed by Isis, eboli and the mid-term election. However, for the people of Ukraine the tumult there continues. Of course, the Ukraine is on the other side of the world, but people are people no matter where they are, and some of them are our brothers and sisters in Christ. And in addition to that, as God’s people, we should be very much concerned about the evangelistic efforts there.
While the work of Eastern European Mission is not limited to the Ukraine, the work there is a major part of their efforts. Probably you already know, but in case some of us do not, they have been able to provide Bibles and other religious literature in many of the public schools in that country. Furthermore, the study of the Bible has been made a part of the curriculum of the public schools. What a door the Lord has opened for the spread of the gospel!
We are invited to the Eastern European Mission benefit dinner on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. It will be a buffet dinner and program at the South Fork Church of Christ in their Event Center. In addition to a good meal and an opportunity to fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ, it will be an opportunity to get the inside information on how our brethren are doing and how the evangelistic work is progressing. And even more, we will have the privilege to be a part of this great work by making a financial gift.
If you plan to attend the dinner, please sign the signup sheet in the back hall so that we may notify them as to how many will be attending.
