Iliya Hlushchak shares how God openned an effectual door to the youth in his community:

Everything has its own time and I could see this very clearly this month. We’ve organized summer camps in the last years, but we had no results, until this year. We almost had no young people coming to our church. Some years ago, some young people came to church and we had been praying for them that the Lord would keep them and multiply them. This year’s camp was a crucial moment. Many of the young people who participated in our camps in past years started attending our church or other churches and they came to participate in our camp again.  Many of them even helped us a lot. After the camp, I thought we wouldn’t see them again until next summer, but many of them kept attending the church.  We had to organize special meetings for them every week. Our church has been praying for this for a long time and the Lord has surprised us this summer. In the last Sunday of the month, we had a special time of prayer for the students, as the new school year starts on September 1. They were so many that we almost didn’t have enough room in front of the church for them all. This was such a great joy for me and I could see how the Lord is preparing the future of this church through our prayers. Half of these young people come from non-Christian families. Please pray for the youth leader, who has much more work to do now. I had to help him in this ministry and I was glad to do it. The Lord has done all this. Please pray that all of these young people would know the Lord (some of them are already Christians).

Please keep praying for our country. We need peace (the war is not over), rain (the fountains are dry) and spiritual revival (among Christians and non-Christians).
