Michigan Bridge Ministry News

Thanks to God we’re back in Ukraine and anxious to get back to work!

Our time in Michigan was short and sweet! We arrived in June just in time for Church of God Camp Meeting. It was the perfect way to start the summer. As a family we camped in cabins, cooked on the grill, had tremendous morning bible study, and the evening services were full of Pentecostal, Holy Ghost, preaching and worship. This year Valeriia and I both enjoyed the services because Danya was in the Children’s room doing crafts and getting excited about Sunday school.

In just 2 ½ months, we traveled all over Michigan and visited 11 different churches. We had more invites but we ran out of time. I must say we are humbled by the amount of prayer and support we received this summer. How else to say it? Thanks to all of you that make it possible for us to “Go ye therefore” into the mission field.

We’re excited to report that specific offerings have been taken up to help with both legs of this ministry; the church in Radvanka and the children in crisis training and conferences. Partial funds have been donated to help with getting running water into the Radvanka church, getting the roof repaired, funds to help Pastor Brugosh with personal expenses, and funds to help our family travel and personal living expenses while in Ukraine.

In addition to the churches within our denomination, there are many individuals and organizations who have been led by the Spirit to attach themselves to this ministry. It is overwhelming to experience how each one of you have given of yourself because you believe in the vision God has given to Michigan Bridge Ministry and the Wiser family. We love you all and pray for clear direction and guidance as we steward all that has been donated to this cause.
