As we continue to celebrate Christmas in Ukraine a very nice Christmas gift has arrived to the Ukrainian Lutheran Church. It was mailed from the students of the second grade of St. Jacobi Lutheran School in Greenfield in Wisconsin (Teacher - Mrs. Kolosovski). The package included hand-made Christmas gifts for Ukrainian children, a very nice greeting, calendars for 2012 and a beautiful picture of U.S. kids with their teacher. Both Lutheran kids in Ukraine and their parents are grateful for such gifts and for such brothers and sisters in faith!

After Baptism sincere prayer of the congregation was raised to the Lord of the Church requesting many happy and blessed years for this new member of the Church. We add our prayers, too!
