The Least of These
New Year is a holiday, which you want to spend with the
people you love. This year our youth group decided to spend it
together. They did everything on their own: gather everybody
who was interested and divided who will bring and prepare what
for celebration. Each brought one or couples dishes with them
but food was not the main part of celebration. Program included
dancing, games, contests and also fellowship time and songs.
During the celebration, each wrote down their dreams and
plans for upcoming year of 2020. All of the papers were put in a
bottle, in order to open it in one year and see what was
accomplished. At the end the building was cleaned and then
everybody scattered to their homes for long-awaited sleep.
According to our tradition every seventh of January our
church goes around the village singing carols for the people.
Christmas is a good reason to serve others and remind them of
the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. This time we had around 14
people with us so we decided to use vehicles for transportation in order to reach everybody on our list.
We had more than 30 people whom we wanted to visit and for 13 of them we bought food baskets.
Although we started singing carols at 11 am we finished around 19 pm.
We were tired but it was a pleasant fatigue. We visited many people, all of them heard the Good News
and many of them we blessed with food baskets. Sincere thankfulness, smiles, and tears of the people
motivate us to continue serving people and spreading the light of God. At the end of the day we were
invited to a small church in Vasylkiv where people were very hospitable and prepared a great supper. We
had to give back something to them so we blessed them with music and worship!
On the other day, we had a chance to sing in a nearby village Kozhuhivka, where they hosted a kid’s
program. It was a pleasure for us to sing there and a good opportunity to practice and get more
