Buryachok Family, 4th Quarter Update (2012)

Ruslan and Lyudminla

Greetings to you in the precious love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I am so grateful to our Lord for the wonderful opportunity to write and thank you for your great participation in our ministry to the Lord. It means so much to us. Thank you so much for your love and attention to our family. We sincerely congratulate you on Christmas and New Year. May the peace, joy and love from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ always fill your houses and hearts!

We so love this special winter time of festive services, carols, congratulations, but most of all we love to realize that Jesus was born and lives in our hearts.

Dear friends, we want to thank you for your prayers for the health of our son Matfei. He’s feeling much better now. But he was diagnosed with certain neurological problems. Please, keep praying for him. We so need your prayers. Pray that the Lord would heal him completely. We have attached our family photo.

The greatest blessing for us in our ministry is the group of committed Christians who help me in my ministry. At the home of one of the sisters in our church we have started a youth group Bible study. It is attended by 10 young people. Ladies in our church regularly hold the meetings for women on different topics and invite unchurched women there. Such meetings mean so for women from our church – they prepare poems, singing and testimonies for these meetings. On the last meeting for women, one lady repented. Praise God!

Recently in our church a young man, Sergei, repented. He plays the guitar well. He is from a needy family, had a hard life, and we pray for the Lord to strengthen his faith and use him for His glory. It would be so great if he would serve the Lord with his musical talent We even have started praying with faith so that the Lord will give us good instrument and musical equipment for this ministry. One of our upcoming plans is to organize Christmas Holidays in schools, if authorities allow us doing this. We also plan to go with our youth and sing carols to unbelievers. Thanks to this ministry, last year one woman came to the Lord.

A few weeks ago we had a special ministry with sermon and prayer for spiritual growth and unity of members of the church. Please join us in prayer for this need so that we will release from evil people, because not all the people in our church have faith (2 Thess. 3:2). It is very painful to see when such people defame God’s church in the eyes of other people. It is very hard to deal with this kind of problem.

May the Lord send to all of us His wisdom in the ministry to Him! We are so very grateful to the Lord for such wonderful friends as you. We love you very much and always remember you in our prayers. May you have a very blessed year!

With sincere love and prayers for you,

Ruslan Buryachok

Greetings to you, your families and church in the precious love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

It is great joy for me to write you and tell you about our life and ministry to the Lord. Thank you so much for your letter to us. It was a great and pleasant surprise for us. It was great joy for us to see your faces, your Prayer House. From your photos we learned that your landscape differs from ours. It was so interesting to see the large cactuses and palm trees. It was joy for us to get acquainted with your new pastor and learn that he is great in yo-yo. Most of our people have no idea about how to play with this toy. Very encouraging for us were words that we are the part of your church and your ministry. It means very much for us. Your prayer and financial support mean very much for development of the ministry in Ukraine and in our town Lyubar. It is great privilege for us to know you and serve our Lord together with you. Our biggest dream is that you will be able to come to us. May our Heavenly Father richly bless you and fill your every need!

Every day of our lives we see the blessing hand of our Lord upon us. He gave us one more zealous lady to our team - she leads the prayer ministry in our church and zealously develops it.

We thank God for 4 new members of our church, whom we baptized in summer. Two of them already zealously serve the Lord. Praise God! One lady came to our church from another one.

Recently we spent a lot of time and effort on construction of the Sunday school classes. To save money, all of construction works we do by ourselves, but we do everything with faith and zeal.

The Lord blessed us to celebrate the Harvest Day and thank Him for the rich harvest on our fields. Many guests from other churches and unbelievers were present on this service. We thanked, worshiped the Lord and proclaimed the Gospel. We are very much grateful to the Lord for all those people, who helped us to organize this service (photo 3).

The Lord shed a lot of blessings upon us and it is impossible to describe all of them. Praise Him!

We ask you to pray for our youngest son Matfei. He gets sick very often and has the symptoms of bronchial asthma. Please, join our prayers for the construction of our Prayer House and pray the Lord to help members of our church to grow up spiritually.

Dear friends, we are very much grateful to you for your prayer and financial support of our ministry to the Lord. We pray for you and promise to keep praying for you, so that our Heavenly Father will bless you and the ministry of your church. We love you very much and always remember you in our prayers.

With sincere love and prayers for you,

Ruslan Buryachok
