Summer 2006 Kerch

Dear Friends and Supporters of The Least of These,

Before I start the team report I would like to share part of an email I received from Jacquie Hoekstra, “as I read the Word this morning a Scripture popped out at me and I feel it was for you. It is, Psalm 126:5, "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy." Verse 6 is a poetic repeat, "He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." As I shared these thoughts with the team, it became obvious that God was showing us his promises and how faithful he was going to be to ALL THE WORK WE DO FOR THE KINGDOM IN UKRAINE.

We had 21 team members made up of local church members, seminary and Bible school students, Ukrainian staff and Americans. We had 2 weeks of programs at Camp Cosmos, the orphanage kindergarten and Camp MaMa’. We also had 3 days of programs at Distky Dome 2 and an incredible 3-day Kid’s crusade with Pastor Sergey Haminko. The last day there were approximate 150 kids there. All together I would say we ministered to between 500-600 kids.

For those of you who support the scholarship program, we gave 13 scholarships to team members for the Kerch outreaches.

Please take time to read the two testimonies from the Kerch outreaches, one from Geralyn Keller and one from Emily McLean. Geralyn and her husband, Bruce, adopted a young girl from the Kerch Internot last August. It was incredible to watch the children build relationships with Geralyn knowing that she was Alena’s new mama. Emily’s team report is as a team member at Camp MaMa’. Camp MaMa’ is a very PRIMITIVE camp for the orphan children on the Azov Sea, about 20 Kilometers from Kerch. This is only the second year that we have been able to have a team stay at Camp MaMa’. A year ago, there was an incredible spiritual breakthrough for MaMa’ had been very dark and almost impossible to minister at. The team this year continued to build on the many victories from a year ago.

Thank you for all your prayers and I sincerely request that you continue to pray for THE LEAST OF THESE.

In His service,


Geralyn Keller Emily McLean 2006 Missions
