Nastya's operation

Praise God for Nastya's successful operation.  She had a hernia which she obtained from carrying water from a well to their home in a village where they lived.  I met Natasha her mom at the turbuculosis hospital and she started coming to Immanuel church.  She had spent time in jail where she went to the Church that was there.  Marik, her son, also has a hernia from carrying water from the well and will be having an operation in the near future.  We were able to help a bit with medicine and medical costs.  As well, since the hospitals don't give three meals a day and not for Natasha as a mother, I brought some soup and kasha for them to eat.  Already they have removed the stiches and she is doing well.  Here is a picture of them below.

Please keep praying for PIZHE centre.  Especially for the young men that are staying there.  Some are doing well where as there are a few really struggling.  I would ask for prayer as we try to help them set obtainable goals and encourage them to seek Christ and His Will in everything.  Here is a picture of them with one of the night staff workers.

Valery Stepanovich, Misha, Igor, Denis, Sergei, Tima and Alyosha.
Your prayers are very needed.  It's very difficult for some of them to change and our humble circumstances aren't the most ideal for this but we are trying our best.  We really depend on the Holy Spirit to do a miraculous work.  As well, please pray for one of my street gals Tanya who has disappeared.  She was once doing very well in her walk with Christ.  She fell in temptation and has been having difficult getting back on track with her relationship with Christ.  This is very painful to witness.  But what is impossible for man is possible with God!
Also, please continue to pray for our children's ministry and the desired after school tutoring program that we would like to have.  We so far haven't found a Christian teacher that can do this for the small gratitude that we can afford.  These children come Sunday evenings for our Sunday children's Christian club.  They are from needy non- Christian homes.  We witness to their moms, some of whom were street children that I ministered to over 10 years ago.
God bless you all!
