Anniversaries offer a wonderful opportunity to look back and give thanks and praise to God. During June 2018 special events were held in Grace church, Odessa, Ukraine to celebrate twenty-five years of God’s provision and faithfulness! For most of those years, SGA [UK] has partnered in several projects, one of which reached its completion and took central stage in the anniversary celebrations!
With three floors for accommodation, a basement for recreation, and a large attic for fellowship and worship, this building provides remarkable living space. The first house-parents at the Shelter, Peter and Lidia Dovbya, have a supervisory role in the Transition House. When they and those that remained of the first orphan family moved into the Transition House, Grace Church members began to pray that God would provide new house-parents for the Shelter. Praise God that he provided three couples who take care of forty-one children! A further couple, Victor and Olesya Krohinov, provide care for six needy children in their own home.
