Oleksandrivka, Ukraine—On July 11-12, 2023, a delegation session took place in the Ukrainian Union. Despite the midweek timing, the brethren took the opportunity to hold a special spiritual meeting. The session and conference were held against the breathtaking backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains in the village of Oleksandrivka.
Hearing that the GC President, Brother Eli Tenorio, would be in the Czech Republic on the weekend of the 8th and in Poland on the weekend of the 15th, the brethren from the Ukrainian Union approached him with the request that he make a detour to Ukraine for the delegation session. Responding to their request, Brother Eli Tenorio attended the conference and delivered an inspiring message of hope in God, reminding us that our faith brings no shame.
During these uplifting meetings, three brethren were ordained. Additionally, new officers were elected to serve in the next term during the delegation session. These dedicated individuals will play vital roles in leading and supporting the Union's mission and endeavors.
As the Ukrainian Union perseveres in its work, it faces ongoing challenges presented by the current war. Nevertheless, we trust that God will continue to bless their efforts. Let us remain steadfast in prayer, especially for our newly ordained workers and their families, during these testing times.
