Dear friend, you could become a part of this life-changing ministry – both through prayer and financial support. Together we can bring the gospel of salvation to these unreached young people and expand the Kingdom of God even more on this earth!
We are Dima and Ira, and we have 3 beautiful children. About 10 years ago, the Lord gave us a vision to start a new church in our hometown. Four years ago we had our first new planted church worship service. Our church reaches out to teenagers, students and young professionals. There are only 7 other Evangelical churches in our city of 151,000 people. We want to grow the influence of Christians in our city who will spread the Gospel in clear and understandable ways.
There are a lot of young people currently living in our city, and many more are coming here from villages and towns all over our country. The number of students at our main University (and different colleges) is over 15,000 people. Additionally, there are also over 18,000 students in public schools. At the same time young people are lacking guidance in life and basic moral values, which is why we have serious problems with smoking, drunkenness, drug addiction, AIDS, early abortion and violence. In 2015 our city was #1 in the region regarding AIDS infections, and is in the Top 5 of our whole nation.
It breaks my heart to see that the young people are dying in my city without God. I want to bring the gospel into their lives and share this hope for a new life that only God in Christ can give!
I’ll be thrilled to see you on our team!
