There are around 7.5 billion people on the earth. Roughly 2.2 billion of those people have never heard the good news of Jesus. Perhaps they live in a nation that is closed to the Gospel message either for religious or ideological/political reasons. Perhaps they live in a highly secularized country that, while not closed to Christianity, does not subscribe to the notion that God even exists. Perhaps it is simply a case of living in such a remote area that there is no access to internet, radio, TV, or other media so they have never had the means to hear the message of salvation through faith in Jesus. The reason why they haven’t heard is not the issue. The issue is that they have not heard nor will they ever hear if someone doesn’t personally go and tell them. Volodymyr and Judi (Balwebber) Ruban are two someones who have stepped up to the plate to go and tell people who have not heard about Jesus that there is a Savior who loves them and has a plan for their lives. Click on the arrow below to listen to Volodymyr and Judi share their testimony and their heart for the people living in the Ukraine. NOTE: the first few minutes consist of the audio portion of a video that was shown. If you are interested in watching the video you can look up the Rubans (see below) and ask how you can access this great video.
The Rubans will be raising funds to return to the Ukraine this year. If you would like to know more about them,, their ministry and/or how you can support them you can look them up on Facebook or on the Assembly of God webpage
The bulletin is posted on the Publications page of this blog.
