The Only Reliable Foundation: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine reports, “We recently visited Kharkiv, the second biggest city in the country. Kharkiv is located near some Russian military bases. Fear and despair are common for many in the city, but it was a great opportunity to share the Message of the ultimate hope! We had a joyful time training evangelists, preaching at churches, teaching seminars, and talking to people about various issues of effective evangelism. Our goal is to help reshape the worldview of Europe, encouraging everyone with the only reliable foundation in the eternal Word of God. Please pray with us for the seeds planted in Kharkiv!”

Our team was asked to record the video of the main sessions.
