HERE IS THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE ARK SINGERS:
“God has brought hundreds to faith in Jesus Christ by first the building of the main Church building that is now housing several families that were bombed out of their homes. Four village church ministries are established in the outer regions of Donetsk. Two orphanages rebuilt to give the children and workers a warm, clean and nicely furnished place to live. The ministry goes weekly and has Bible studies and a puppet ministry with the children and Christmas programs and gifts and summer camps where both the children from the orphanages and children from the surrounding villages are invited to attend. The summer camps give the children a much needed fun filled two weeks with the message of God’s love and salvation shared. Many have received Jesus Christ as their Savior along with many from their families. Also, many children are sponsored by American and German Christians to encourage them with God’s love and support.
Due to the bombing by Russia many families, along with the Ark Singers and their families, have lost their homes and jobs but in God’s grace and strength He is providing places to live and His ministry is going forward reaching out with the message of the Gospel and His grace and mercies.
Now the 2016 Winter Tour by the Ark Singers is fast approaching.” They will be in Dunlap at Chapel Hill to sing on Sunday evening February 14th at 5pm with a soup and sandwich supper to follow. Bring your loved ones and enjoy an evening of song and praise!
