Yuri has been working very hard on the remodeling of the church. He is doing an excellent job. I praise the Lord for such a trustworthy worker. The paperwork (switching our church from the city to the village) should be finished in about 2 weeks so if at least the main room is finished, we should be able to start meeting there by the end of June. We are anxious about moving in, but we know that God's timing is perfect. We have posted a video (above) and pictures below of all of the work that has been done.
Until recently, Valodia has been extremely faithful to both Bible lessons and church. This week he missed both Wednesday night service and his Bible lesson on Thursday. He says that he has work, which is very possible. We are praying that this is not just an excuse for him to quit. He is planning on attending services this Sunday so we will talk to him about changing the Bible lesson times to work around his schedule. We ask that you pray about this.
