Summer is an amazing time for God’s Hidden Treasures. During the months of June and July we host a number of teams from the US, run two summer camps for children with special needs, a VBS at the local orphanage, and a picnic for people with disabilities.
Impact from Southern California has been sending us mission teams for many years to help run a VBS for children at the Boy’s House orphanage. We spent the week singing worship songs, playing games, doing crafts, teaching Bible stories and sharing Christ’s love with these children.
The weeks following camp we held our annual picnic in the park for people with disabilities. Even though we had some rain that day, no one went home. Everyone stuck around to enjoy the food, fellowship, worship, and of course, the talent show.
The last big event of summer was our summer camp for young adults with special needs. Helping run this camp was a team of Ukrainian volunteers, many of whom were former campers along with three Americans from Iowa. God worked powefully in this camp, bringing peace into the hearts of youth who have been through some serious hardships and traumas. The stories from some of our new campers truly broke our hearts. Life hurts, but God heals, and we were amazed to see God’s power to mend hearts.
Along with these special events, we continued to deliver wheelchairs, rehabiliate stroke victims, visit people in their homes, bring food packets, give financial aid, and much more. We even had a chance to repair the leaking roof of a women who lives alone in a single room with no gas or running water. All these things are possible only through God and the support he provides through churches and individuals like you. We want to thank you so much for all your prayers and for partnering with us in our mission to reach the forgotten in Ukraine.
