Adopt a Widow
Our elderly are the poorest of the poor. With the deflation of the local currency and the inflated prices of goods, their pensions from the government aren't enough for basic food and medicine. That is why Music Mission Kiev has been caring for widows and widowers for the last twenty years, bringing weekly food, Bible classes, medical assistance, and the love of Christ.
Today we serve 400 widows, 100 of whom are homebound. For $50 a month, you can adopt a widow or widower and see that his or her needs are taken care of. Here are some of our widows who need your help.
Maria Erko invited her to St.Paul's church. She found real joy, when became to know Christ and had a possibility to study the Bible. In the middle of life's calamities she met Christian friends, feel love and compassion.
Her former colleague Lidia Velentey invited her to the church in April, 2015. She was born in the village,in the poor family. Mother alone had to take care about two children, and taught them to love God. Maria studied in the nurse school in Kiev and got married when she was 42. Later her husband died in car accident.
Her friend, former choir member Dvornichen Miroslava invited him to the St. Paul's church. When he first came to the Bible classes he understood that his soul craved for God. He wanted to learn more about Christ, to pray and to worship the Lord. He remembers his poor childhood, when 3 families (3 women and 7 children) shared one apartment, without water, gas, sewerage.
Aida Rudikova invited her in April, 2015. Galina was raised by her mother in the village in Zhitomir region, during the famine years after Word war II. Her mother was a believer, she taught Galina to pray and to trust God. She is sure God helped our people to go through Chernobyl's tragedy, but the we have consequences until now.
We have many widows like Svetlana, Maria, Vladimir and Galina, looking for a sponsor.

On this program you will hear stories about the early years in Ukraine, when Roger and Diane were called to move to Kiev in 1992. They came to present concerts of sacred masterpieces that had been forbidden under Communist rule, and it was like an "explosion of light" to musicians and audiences who loved classical music and were hungry for a spiritual message. However, in 1994 they established a church with the musicians, who wanted to know more about the Bibles they had received. Ninety-five people stood to receive Christ in the first worship service. Soon the congregation was taking food to desperately poor widows who had nothing to eat. It began with twenty widows, and now Music Mission Kiev serves more than 400, one hundred of whom are homebound. Today this church is called St. Paul's Evangelical Church, and Roger is the pastor.
