Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

It feels great to share Thanksgiving meal with beloved family and friends. It is beneficial to our souls to reflect on God’s goodness in our lives this year. As we read in the Word, in Psalm 92:1,

It is good to give thanks to the Lord
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High

It also a bittersweet to miss someone at the table this year whatever the reason for it. With that bittersweet feeling, we look forward to reunion if not in a near future here on earth, then at the table of Christ when He comes again in glory. Our joyful praise will be complete. Our cups will overflow. May God of all comfort bring peace and comfort to your hearts, we pray.

We also give thanks to God for you, for your faithfulness in praying and supporting of our ministry. We live in reality of dependence on the Lord and His provision for the needs of this essential and relevant ministry of theological education. This ministry addresses pressing needs of the church in Ukraine today, and it prepares next generation of church leaders. We equip them to serve effectively as they grow in their relationships with Jesus. What we hear about our graduates and their ministries serves as great encouragement and basis of giving thanks to God who works in them and through them in ways beyond our initial expectations.

Please keep on praying for us so that when you hear about us you find us faithful to the calling of God, which He placed on our lives and our ministry.

Thank you for being our partners in this ministry.

With love in Christ,

Ruslan Khmyz
President of Kyiv Theological Seminary
