NINE MORE BUILDINGS PURCHASED IN UKRAINE FOR CHURCHES!
Volume XXXIX No. 5

We write this Good News Report with much joy in our hearts. The reason being, people like you have helped carry us with prayers and faith into over 125 countries in the past 40 years. We rejoice, as by faith, we have purchased 9 more buildings in Ukraine for churches.

This means that since February of 2000 until this present time, you have helped our ministry purchase a total of 40 buildings in Russia and Ukraine. Praise the Lord! None of these buildings are put in our names or the name of Abundant Life Crusades but rather in the name of the local church we purchased it for. Most of the local churches are churches we have planted or have helped plant through one of the workers that has gone through the 3-month Bible Training School.

The people are very poor and purchasing these buildings are a great blessing to them and to the Work of God. A good salary for a worker is $50.00 per month. That is if they are paid. I know a doctor, the head surgeon of a city of 50,000 people, who is paid $75.00 per month. This is considered a large salary. Even though we purchase the  buildings for them, they must still remodel and fix them into churches. The costs of buildings are increasing and although we gave $18,700.00 for the 9 buildings, we probably could have gotten them a year ago for about $12,000.00 as property value has gone up. However, it is doubtful one could buy just one of these buildings with the land in USA, Canada or Great Britain for that price. We were able to place $4,000.00 down on these buildings and have 3 months to pay the rest. Although we have done this by faith, we believe God will provide. Pray and believe with us.
Pashchenke: We bought this store for only $1,500.00.

We are printing the 9 photos of the buildings in this Good News Report. I would ask you to just place your hands on each one and ask God to bless them and that each one may be a soul winning station for the Glory of God.

It is becoming more and more difficult to rent buildings to be used as churches as there is much opposition and it is not coming from the government. About 80-90 per cent of all churches planted since the wall came down, are in rental buildings.

This is a precarious position for the Church. Having their own building will protect them from being expelled out of their location. Pray that God will enable us to purchase more buildings for these precious new believers. We are workers together with Christ and do appreciate all you have done to help us.

More information on Ukraine continued from last month?s Good News Report. Ukraine has the second highest population of countries in the former USSR, with an estimated population of 51,867,828 in 1995. Only Russia has more people. Ethnic Ukrainians make up 73 percent of the population, while Russians have 22 percent of the population. Other minorities include Belarusians, Moldavians, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Poles, and Crimean Tatars. Ukrainian is a Slavic language closely related to Russian, and is the official language, although Russian is widely spoken.

 Kharkiv, capital of eastern Ukraine, is at the junction of the Kharkiv, Lopan, and Udy rivers. A large city and chief industrial and transportation center, Kharkiv (also called Kharkov) is located near the rich coalmines and is linked by railroad to the iron ore deposits of Kryvyy Rih. (Crooked Horn and the longest city in the world, but very narrow.) Manufactures include farm and mining machinery, electric and railroad equipment, chemicals, machine tools, and processed food. Kharkiv is a city of broad avenues and large buildings. The city is the site of a university, scientific research centers.

Kharkiv was founded in 1656 as a fortress protecting Moscow from the Tatars. The city grew as a trade and cultural center, and in 1765 it became the administrative center of Ukraine. With the development of the vast mineral wealth of the region in the late 19th century, Kharkiv developed into an industrial and rail transportation center

During World War I Kharkiv was the scene of heavy fighting, first between German and Russian troops and later (1917-20) between opposing forces in the Russian Revolution.

It was the capital of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic from 1920 to 1934, when it was replaced by Kiev. During World War II Kharkiv was occupied (1941-43) by German troops and suffered severe damage.

Population estimate in 1995 was 2,018,000.

PRAY FOR REVIVAL IN THE FORMER USSR!
God bless you. Tony & Marge. Abram
