On November 10, 2013, an annual partners' dinner event was held by Slavic Missionary Bible School to show the appreciation for all the prayers and financial support.
An opportunity was given to all of our partners to be witnesses of everything that God has been doing at SMBS by either attending the dinner or tuning in live at lscjax.org. Brief video clips were shown as an update of everything that took place in the past year on the mission fields. In addition, Bogdan Bondarenko, school’s director, has shared the financial report, projects, future visions, and plans for the upcoming year.
This year, our partners had the honor to personally meet one of our full time missionaries from Ukraine, who came home to her family for the first time since finishing SMBS and leaving to missions 3 years ago. Svetlana Gulchuk shared an encouraging testimony how God can use every heart that desires to impact lives across the country. One of the biggest lessons that missions have taught her, as she has stated, is learning to trust God in everything! Many have left encouraged and excited after hearing all the reports, reviews, and testimonies that SMBS has presented.
We encourage everybody to take a step of faith and make a difference in someone’s life whether it’s through financial or spiritual support.
Once again, we would like to thank all of our partners who invest into SMBS ministry through moral, financial, and spiritual support. As a result, we can carry out the vision that God has given us to accomplish.
May God’s blessing be with you at all times!
The Slavic Missionary Bible School is a non-profit, Christian education center designed for the American Slavic community.
Many people wonder how a ministry such as SMBS can sustain itself.
