Lining up for diplomas from Walter & for Tony?s new book

We first came to this city of about 1 million in the early 1990?s and held crusades and seminars.  There were only a couple of churches at that time.  In the crusades, hundreds were saved and healed.  We, as a Team, planted a number of new churches, which we rejoiced to say have grown and matured.   Now the people themselves have and are continually planting satellite churches.  Our good friend, Bishop Vasiliy Gedarevich has been a strong visionary leader. We have now trained more than 2,000 workers and graduated over 1,200 in the 15 Bible Schools in Ukraine and Russia. We have also trained more than 5,000 pastors and leaders in National Conferences and seminars in these nations including Belarus.

On this mission, we were able to see the birthing of several more new churches. Working with ministers that Walter Zygarewicz has coordinated, we have seen more than 425 new congregations in Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus. God?s Grace is being poured out in the former Soviet Union. Unlike new laws restricting religious work in places such as Belarus and Russia, Ukraine is experiencing unprecedented freedom to teach and share the Good News of the Gospel.

The Ukrainians love to hear Marge sing!

Her arm is healed!

At 2AM of the morning of graduation day, my new book in Russian came off the presses. Brother Vitaliy from Kharkov drove 6 hours after being up all night, to receive the books and bring them to the school in time to give each of the 140 students a free copy. We also have already given and sent out over 1,000 of the 5,000 you have helped us print. The English translation is the same as the last book we printed of 10,000, except that it has been updated and revised and made larger, ?Steps to Successful Christian Living.? The last book proved a blessing to many. We have sold them in the USA and Canada for $7.00 (in Russian only) but we do give them free in Russia and Ukraine and other countries of the former USSR.

We also were able to purchase, by faith, 5 more buildings in Ukrainian villages, (a village being up to 5,000 people) for church buildings for less than $7,000.00 total.  We also, by faith, in the downtown area of Zaporozhiye, pledged $9,000.00 for the purchase of an auditorium which seats over 500 plus, almost a block of stores and apartments. (See photo below left) It is one of the best values we have seen. Of course, it will cost more than the $9000.00 we pledged but the church that is using it is raising the balance.

This auditorium seats over 500 and also has a block of stores
and apartments. We pledged $9,000.00.


This local church has about 600 members (fairly large) and I believe this was one of the churches we planted some years ago. This makes a total of 97 buildings purchased in the past dozen years of ministry in the former USSR.  Of all the wonderful things God did by His Spirit on this mission, the greatest still was seeing souls coming to receive the Living Christ in the rallies and outreaches. It was wonderful to see the many healings that He did but still the more wonderful by far, was seeing lives changed by the Power of His Saving Grace

Tony leads souls to Christ

There are many other things that we could tell but do not have space. John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. Please keep praying for us.

Marge given a basket of roses.

By the time you receive this report, we will have started our 16th Basic Bible Training School in Donetsk, Ukraine and expect to train another 200 or more for the ministry, with the help of the anointed teachers that Walter schedules from USA, Canada, England and elsewhere. We believe in the 5 fold ministry spoken of in (Eph 4:11 KJV) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; Eph 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

Walter Zygarewicz, Bishop Vasyil &Tony Abram.

 It is because of this, that over 90% who have gone through the Schools are now in ministry, both in Ukraine, Russia and abroad. Our desire is to continue to share the Gospel.

Thank you for your prayers. God bless you and yours.

Tony & Marge Abram
