December 2012 News from Holly

Holly Friesen on December 11, 2012


“ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 


May we continue to be filled with wonder at the amazing miracle of God becoming man in order to redeem us from our slavery to sin! I hope the most incredible gift of all time will be your focus during this Christmas season.
I have much to be thankful for as I reflect on God’s blessings over this past year. Here are just a few:
  • Provision of a visa & temporary residence permit
  • Seeing God use the “Forgiven & Set Free” Bible study to bring healing to women post abortion
  • Watching God  raise up leaders for the post abortion ministry
  • Souls saved at our church’s summer camp
  • Evidence of God’s blessing in our first ever purity retreats
  • Seeing clinic patients soften towards the gospel message & begin to attend church
  • Opportunities to minister in new villages with the fall medical team
  • Salvation of a man in Makarova where we hold monthly clinics
These blessings are direct answers to requests for prayer. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness! Thank you for partnering with me in prayer!
This Christmas will be extra special because I get to spend it with my family. I am flying home Dec. 17th and will be in the states for 8 months. I look forward to seeing many of you and to sharing more about what God is doing here in Ukraine. I need prayer for wisdom as I work on scheduling and preparing to share. It is not an easy task to give a report about the last 3 years of your life! I also need to raise some additional support in order to return to Ukraine in Aug. of 2013. I appreciate your prayers for God’s provision. Let me know if you would like information about supporting my ministry.
The fall post abortion Bible studies will be finishing in the next few weeks. Pray for God to work mightily in the heart of each lady involved. We have printed up brochures about this ministry to distribute in the Odessa churches this month. Pray for our leaders as they respond to inquiries and prepare for next years groups. Pray that those who need this course would have the courage to contact us.
We also need your prayers as we move forward with the process of registering our new pro-life organization “Choose Life”. Pray that we will have wisdom in finalizing our constitution & meeting all the necessary government requirements.
Praising God for His most amazing gift!
