I woke up with my nose stuffed up. I felt really exhausted. I decided to spend the morning sleeping and reading. I had not really had a day of rest on the whole trip. In the afternoon, we got a ride to Misha’s house and had lunch – mostly vegetables grown in their garden. We talked about Hope to People and what I could do for them.
Basically, they are looking for relationships with Americans who will devote their time to helping with their outreaches. Hopefully, these blog entries will serve to explain to missions minded Christians the great opportunity that is there. You can contact me for more details.
I heard about at least 20 ministries related to Hope to People including three churches, an orphanage, various summer youth camps, a Christian ethics department and the ministry to Christian teachers in the public schools which includes a new magazine. They asked me to write one article base on my experiences as an American at the youth camp. That article I published on my blog last August, Teaching Christian Ethics in the Public Schools of Ukraine.
We then went back to the Hope to People center and I spent some time in Alyona’s office checking 10 days of email until we both got a ride home from John Whittemore. I read and wrote some more in my journal and went to sleep early. I spent some more time in the Word today and I felt better.
Again, I didn’t take any video, but here is a biography of Pastor Misha Dubovik.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.
