Michigan Bridge Ministry News

Wow! Where did the last two months go? It has been non-stop action here in Uzhgorod. Since Easter until now it has been go, go, go! Thanks to God we have had so many opportunities for ministry. We had family ministry during Easter, Humanitarian Evangelism with food baskets, Big Tent Revival, Eye Glasses Clinic, and lots of remodeling at the church. There is too much to tell in this issue, so I will be sending the next issue in two weeks in order to get caught up.

Don’t forget to check the recent photos for a quick glance at everything.

A Lesson in Humanitarian Evangelism

Distributing Food Baskets to the Elderly in Radvanka – Uzhgorod, Ukraine Our initial intention was to distribute gift baskets to the non-believers in our community.

Matthew 24:36.  But make no mistake that there will come a time when we will meet our maker either in a global moment, or in our own personal time. And when that meeting happens, you will be justified or condemned for eternity. Are you… read full article»

Ukrainian Easter Basket Blessing

Just after midnight on Easter in Ukraine, people begin to fill the streets and wait for the priest to come and bless their Easter baskets. Thousands of people line the streets. It is an amazing sight. Each basket is placed on the ground with a lit candle. The priest sings songs over the loud speakers and reads prayers. Then he comes by with a bucket of water and a brush and splashes holy water on people and their baskets. This tradition was forbidden under Communist rule. In 1991 Ukraine became independent from USSR. They won their freedom of speech, expression, and religion. Slowly, year after year, people have returned to the streets to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ has risen! He has truly risen!
