Opportunities are everywhere…

And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)

Last week we got a call from our ministry partner who said that he met a lady who was interested in the English Clubs we do and he gave her Arkadiy’s phone number. Few minutes later she called and told Arkadiy that she teaches at the local University and asked about the work we do here in Odessa. Arkadiy said that we don’t have English clubs in summer but we have English camps and asked her whether she would be interested in getting some application forms. She said yes and so we met. At that meeting she read through the forms and listened to Arkadiy talk about the camps for 5 minutes, told Arkadiy that it is all understandable and then she asked him: “ok, that is clear, so now tell me what do you believe?”. Arkadiy shared the Gospel with her for 2 hours; she had a lot of questions and was very interested. She has never heard before despite the fact that she has been going to the Russian Orthodox Church all of her life. Praise God for that opportunity! Her name is Oksana. Please keep her in your prayers.
