Andrew Zhuravlev, a graduate from the very first Bear Valley Bible Institute extension (at the time it met in Kramatorsk), has been the preacher for the church in Gorlovka and supported by our congregation since 2010.  Due to the ongoing unrest and conflict with Russian insurgents, during which the Gorlovka building was seized in the Spring of 2014, the school had to relocate to western Ukraine near Lviv in the town of Ternopil. This summer and fall, Andrew has been ministering to the Christians in Gorlovka by trying to help them find housing and relocate to the Kiev area.  This is obviously a time of upheaval and adjustment for our Christian family there.
