Christmas Greeting from Ukraine

Dear Springs of Grace Family,

Christmas greetings to all of you! May the peace and love of our God embrace your hearts this Christmas and unite your families around the only Savior – Jesus Christ! This is a wonderful time to think about the hope we all have in our Lord Jesus Christ, to remember all of His wonderful blessings and answers to prayers and to think about what we are grateful for this year and always.

I am grateful for all of you, my dear family, for your faithfulness in prayer and steadfast support over the years. Brothers and sisters, your generosity is one means that God uses to do His important work. It is always amazing for me to think about how God works, using different people all over the world to accomplish His saving work. God is mightily using you to help me serve as a physical therapist for people with disabilities at the Agape Rehabilitation Complex and to participate in meeting the needs of certain people whom He puts on my heart. I want you to know that God is at work here in Lutsk, Ukraine and you are a big part of His plan of salvation for people with disabilities.

I am grateful to God that one year ago I moved into my own house. It brings me great joy that my dream of having a wheelchair-accessible home came true and I am happy that I get to host and serve people with disabilities in it. My home group, which includes seven people with disabilities, now meets on a weekly basis in my home and I also have the opportunity to invite friends to my home for fellowship and relaxation. I am really happy to host and serve different people and I hope it is pleasing to our Lord Jesus Christ.

But most of all, I am grateful to God for His Son Jesus Christ, who saved me, who gave me a future and a hope, and who gave me you.

I hope you all will have a sweet time of fellowship with each other and with the Lord this Christmas. I miss all of you greatly.

Merry Christmas!
