All-Ukrainian Youth Congress Attracts More Than 1,000 Young People Despite Country's Turmoil

Eight months of work culminates in Odessa, Ukraine


After eight months of preparation, MIWC Associate Vitaly Bolgar led the 13th Annual All-Ukrainian Youth Congress last month near Odessa, Ukraine.

Bolgar said, "God really blessed this event. We had great weather and an outpouring of His grace."

Choirs, instrumental groups and vocal ensembles from all across Ukraine participated, including 600 student musicians.OdessaFest2.jpg

Bolgar thanked God especially for MIWC supporters whose financial assistance enabled him and his family to travel to Odessa.

Ukraine ministry outreach opportunities, like this youth event, continue even though fighting and bloodshed mar the Eastern border of the country.

MIWC's Ukrainian associates are working tirelessly to spread Biblical worship training across Ukraine, while conscious of the ever present possibility of danger faced by their families.
