Ministering in Ukraine

Hello, and welcome to the internet home of the Sobie family!

"Following In His Steps"

1) Please pray that the Holy Spirit would work in the hearts of the many people who heard the gospel in our home or at one of the many places we shared over these Christmas events from the past weeks.

2) We just learned that a young couple from a neighboring village, friends of ours - Vasili and Galina, received some very difficult news this week.  Galina has cancer that has now spread to her liver.  They have several young children and need prayer now as they face this diagnosis.  

3)  I am so thankful for your continued prayers for my Dad as he finishes up treatment for the brain tumor which has left him very weak.  We are so concerned about him and it is hard to be this far away from my parents during this hard time.  But knowing that so many are bringing him before the Lord in prayer does lift our faith as well.
