Vacation Bible School in Kremenets, Ukraine

For several years in a row, volunteers from the USA have been visiting the old town of Kremenets. Every year children and youth from Kremenets look forward to meeting them and the summer of 2009 was no exception. On Friday, July 3, a group of 7 volunteers arrived in Kremenets. On Sunday they attended the service in Ukrainian Lutheran Church and became acquainted with the members of Lord's Cross congregation. 

Lessons began on Monday. Each morning children were in a hurry to get to church in time for the lessons. There were 4 groups of children more than 120 in total every day. As in years past, a Gift of Life pro-life counselor conducted presentations for all of them. Children had an opportunity to become familiar with the work of Gift of Life and to learn about prenatal development of a baby. Children were invited to visit the life center to learn more about "How They Began" - the miracle of life and God's plan for each of them. 


Volunteers from the US also visited the Gift of Life pro-life center. There they saw all the posters and pictures illustrating pro-life work, received answers to their questions and became the witnesses of close cooperation between the work of the life-center and the Ukrainian Lutheran Church.


Volunteers that came to Kremenets for VBS took a few photos as mementos hoping to meet at the same place in the future.
