Ukrainian Family Update
Thank you letter from Nina:
More then a year ago we came in Lancaster.
Want to be honest it wasn't easy to be here all this time.
We have had a lot of stressfull and scary situations.
And don't know how many we'll have more.
All my life all my family, my relatives, my friends were around us.
I was safety and relaxed, because all the time I knew where to go if I'll need help.
And more then a year ago our lifes has changed.
I 've lost everything...as I thought...
I didn't expect for anything good...
But God gave me and Matvii so much...
He showed me that we can have real family without blood relations.
He showed me that unknown people can love you as your very close family.
He showed that His love can make us as close to each other as we can't even imagine.
He shows every day that if you cry this evening but still ask Him for help He will give you peace in the morning. Because His mercy updates every day.
Every day I thankful for God for Keystone.
All of you show us that Jesus has His strong army here which can safe someone life and soul.
Keystone saves our lifes and souls during this long period.
It doesn't give me to fall down.
It is like Moses was helded his hands, the same way Keystone hold my heart to be strong and see Jesus's love to us.
I thankful for God that His love through Keystone's people help me, as mom to survive in my Spirit.
Because to be honest some days are too hard to go through alone...
But when I think what kind of blessing God gave us through Keystone's people I get up and do my mom's job as best as I can.
I hope and believe that God choose Keystone to show His Glory and Love through Matvey's life.
Bless ALL OF YOU.
I really need to say, ALL of YOU made amazing work for me and Matvii and all our family.
Without your Church I couldn't go through all of this...even would not try.
Who are Nina & Matvey?
Nina Foris and Matvey Serduik from the Ukraine have found a 'somewhat' normal routine here in the US. Matvey's physical needs are great. Matvey and Nina arrived on Memorial Day from the Ukraine after receiving word that the rare genetic disorder that Matvey has had since birth is seen and treated at a local clinic in Strasburg, The Clinic for Special Children.
Nina, his mother, is his full-time caregiver. He is a special, cheerful boy in spite of his disability. Nina continues to pray fervently for healing and asks that all believers pray in chorus with her for complete healing for her son. They will continue to live here in the US for Matvey to receive gene therapy. Currently, Matvey is still undergoing testing to see if he is a candidate for this medical trial.
Nina and Matvey have now been in the US for more than one year but are short on rent for September.
Would you consider giving today?
Keystone Church is providing rent in order for the family to live in a small home in Lampeter, it is perfect for their needs at this time. Please consider supporting them by praying and giving to the Ukrainian Family Fund to provide housing for them while they are here in the USA.
Would you like to get more involved with Keystone's ministry to Matvey and Nina?
