Harley Fiddler flew
from Ohio to Atlanta where we met and then left from there to fly
together to Odessa, Ukraine via Frankfurt, Germany and Prague,
Czech. It is always a joy for us to work and minister with
Missionary Evangelist Harley Fiddler. He has been used much by the
Lord in many parts of the Lord and is the founder and president of
International Focus Ministries.

Upon arriving in Odessa,
we were met by two brethren to travel by Van to the city of

We had wonderful
ministry everywhere we went. It was a thrill in outreach services to
see so many people repent and give their hearts and lives to Christ.
This is still the greatest miracle that can happen.
What a joy to see
both young and old come to receive Christ as their Personal Savior.
Bishop Slavic, whom we know from Sacramento, California, was our
host minister and arranged the outreach ministry which included
ministers and a worker’s seminar with over one handed attending from
We were especially
blessed by the sincerity and spiritual hunger of these precious men
and women of God. The three month Bible training school was

During the time of our
ministry in Ukraine, Evangelist Morris Cerullo and Evangelist Walter
Zygarewicz were to be Ukraine at the same time that we were for
three meetings. However, they were stranded in Norway and could not
get to Ukraine because of the volcano fallout.
They contacted me and
asked me to do the meeting scheduled in the city of Nicolayev. We
did and had an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God gave me a special
anointing and many souls came to Christ, delivered, filled with
Spirit and I asked, how many were healed? Hundreds of hands were

also a joy to be back in the city of Nicolayev as this was one of
the cities that we held seminars, crusades and planted churches in
the mid nineties. How wonderful to see churches all over the city

calling from God is an evangelist, a soul winner. I never call
myself an apostle, though others have done so. I know my calling; I

It is so wonderful to
see the churches that we helped to plant, growing and multiplying
and the saints maturing. Many of the churches we planted over the
years in the former USSR have planted many more new churches.
It is the same with
the army of workers we have helped train. They are now doing the
same, preaching and planting new works.
Keep praying. It is
