Ministering to the Forgotten Children Near Chernobyl

Immanuel’s Child OutreachEric Mock reports of God’s provision and faithfulness in Ukraine

It has been an exhausting, but wonderful, few days of ministry. Through blowing snow and a combined 14 hours of driving, we ministered in two orphanages, visited with and provided aid to eight families, and held a worship service and an Immanuel’s Child outreach for 100 children in an elementary school! It was an amazing time, but there is one story, in particular, I want to share more about with you.…

In an impoverished village, full of neglected and hungry children, God has planted a church. SGA missionary pastors Anatoliy and Maria have found themselves with 100 children nearby — 50 of whom now come to their small home that they have turned into a church.

Maria tells of answering a knock at the door to find a child in tears pleading for food. She cares for the children of a family of three, each with a different father, who suffer in deep poverty and an alcoholic mother. Each child is brokenhearted. Yet in this village forgotten by most — and near the damaged Chernobyl reactor — God raised up a church with love, compassion, and a heart to see these children and families loved with the Gospel and care.

Immanuel’s Child OutreachWhen Anatoliy and Maria held an Immanuel’s Child outreach, the children were so excited for the gifts, the Bible, and the star. Many heard the names of those who gave them the stars and committed to pray for them. These precious children now know their family in Christ is bigger than they could have imagined. And thanks to the addition of Sunday school material through Immanuel’s Child, the discipleship will continue year round.
