Six MORE BUILDINGS PURCHASED FOR CHURCHES
IN ARMENIA AND UKRAINE!
Volume XXXXVI No. 3

We rejoice and are happy to report that we have been able to purchase more buildings, most of which are houses, to be converted into ?Houses of Prayer.? In Noramarg, Armenia, a work was started in this village.

There are already a good number of believers. It is not far from the city limits of Yerevan - some 15 km. The properties in this village are high around 15 thousand dollars, (buildings in Armenia are higher than Ukraine) but they found this nice building ready to use for much less.

The house has a large living room hall that can fit more than 70 plus on benches. It is built out of stone and the ceiling is made out of concrete so that another floor can be added. It has over an acre of land and includes a garage and fruit trees and has interior water (unusual for a village) and some 3 bedrooms.

The photo only shows a part of this property. It is building number #161 that this ministry has been able to purchase with $4,000.00. The people of Armenia are very poor and they are so happy to now have their own building for a church.

In Ukraine, we were able to also purchase four more buildings for local churches. We believe this is the Lord?s doing that during these past years since the walls of communism have fallen, we have be able to purchase 166 buildings in villages and towns in the former USSR.

Noramarg, Armenia.
We gave $4000.00 for the purchase of this building #161.

Kamenka, Crimia, Ukraine, building #162 (with cross). We gave $800.00 for it. Here they are remodeling it for a church.

Also, this is not counting any that we have helped build in Africa, India, South America and Asia. We know that this is the Lord?s doing and we give Him all the praise, honor and glory! We know that God has used people just like you to make this possible. Many hands can make a great work.

We are workers together with Christ and we do not want to forget that. With Him all things are possible. I remember when our vision was only for 24 buildings in the former USSR, but God does Now our vision is for 200 buildings for churches.

We want to keep working until God calls us home or even better until the trumpet of the ages sounds and the Lord returns for His people. What a day that will be when we see Jesus!

The Bible tells us we will be like Him when we shall see Him. 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as He is.

These poor people in the small towns and villages appreciate having their own Houses of Prayer as they call their churches. God can change us from sinners to saints when we receive Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. The people now convert these buildings into churches.

The price we paid was $2500.00.
 
Little did the leaders of communism dream that one day many of their Cultural Halls, Schools, Snack bars, Cafes, Post Offices, Theatres, Supermarkets, Stores, Houses and even other types of buildings would become Houses of Worship for local churches. Stalin, Marx and Lenin would roll over in their graves if they knew what was happening to their buildings.

Schools that taught, ?There is no God,? who tried to destroy the Church, now these same buildings are filled with the praises of God?s people. None of these buildings are in our names or the name of Abundant Life Crusades but rather in the name of the local churches.

What would they say or think? Praise God! If they could, they would turn over in their graves. When they were building great Public Halls in the cities, they did not know they would be building for the Kingdom of God.


Kairy, Ukraine. In this village we gave $800.00, for building #165, Here the exterior is remodeled.

Building #166 in Kakovka, Ukraine.
We gave $1,000.00 for it.

Please pray and believe that we will be able to help more new congregations springing up all over the former USSR. This is one of the outreaches of this ministry. We are building for the Kingdom of God and not for ourselves. God bless you and yours.

Tony and Marge Abram, 3 John 2
