introduces our ministry to the Bible School
|It was in the
year of 1987 during Marge and my 25th wedding celebration, when many
ministers were laying hands on us, praying for us, Pastor Maggos of
Alton, Illinois began to prophesy over us. (He being the first of a
number of prophecies, that we received concerning our future
ministry) What he said was what the Lord had already started dealing
The word of exhortation was
that although our ministry would continue in the fields of
evangelism and soul winning, that there would be a change toward
teaching, training and raising us other workers to go and preach the
gospel. Shortly we began to see the change and though what is most
dear to us is winning the lost to Christ, we saw great joy in
training others with what the Lord has given us.

|In this way we
are duplicating and multiplying our ministries through others. In
this ‘Good News Report,’ we worked with the Slavic Missionary Church
"Bethany", located in Sacramento, California with their 350 Bible
We were there to minister in
their church of about 6,000 which includes the youth. It is the
largest Slavic church in the Americas. 20 years ago there were only
two Slavic Churches in Sacramento. Now there are over 80 Slavic

Bishop Bondaruk with whom we have had seminars and ministry over the
years. He was born in Ukraine. In 1958 born again, baptized. and
baptized in the. Holy Spirit. In Krivoy Rog, Ukraine. 1968, became
pastor. (It was in this city that we bought one of our first
buildings for a church in Ukraine for $7500.00 around 1995 and where
we are planning a possible school beginning in September or October
with about 300 students who can become soul winning workers) 1989,
he immigrated to Sacramento, CA.

What a joy leading these future soul winners
in full commitment to the feet of Jesus .
Bishop Pastor Adam Bondaruk.
|Our ministry was
to the youth of the churches in the area and to the saints in their
regular services. The power of God fell in great power in every
meeting. Many were touched spiritually and physically by the Lord.
I was moving in the gift of Prophecy, when one of the pastors ran to
the mike and grabbed it, stating as we prayed the mass prayer of
faith, his deaf ear popped open. People were healed all over the
place. Glory to God! Teaching the students for the week, I sensed
that they were like spiritual sponges soaking up the Word of God.
Most of my teaching was on Evangelism, Soul winning and Faith. It
was nice to do all the lessons in English.

|We had good
fellowship with Walter and Nina and their family as they gave us
hospitality. We were also able to map out planning for future
outreaches in Russia, Ukraine and other parts of the former USSR.
We prayed for and God used us in the gifts as we were able to pour
our ministry hearts out to them. Pray for these future soul
