Merry Christmas from the Burnhams!

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; Luke 2:10

We are overjoyed that we have been able to spend the last two decades taking the “evangel” – the good news of great joy – to the people of Ukraine. Thank you so much for making it possible for us to do this. We pray that you will have a glorious Christmas season, and that as you wrap gifts and sing songs, you will be reminded of the great joy that the incarnation brought. Merry Christmas to you all.

Here are few quick snapshots to let you know what’s been going on with us…


Bob continues to teach on the family with Covenant of Grace church – our north Odessa church plant.  He also meets weekly with young men to talk more deeply about how our faith applies to every aspect of life. We believe these young men will be taking the baton and become the next leaders of our churches – please keep them in your prayers!

Andrea, along with our pastor’s wife Snezhana, has been investing a great deal of time in the youth of our community through our teen program called “Podrastishka.”  Having three teens of our own now, our girls are always eager to be involved!

Between trips to Izmail, Kotovskovo and Odessa, our team has been wonderfully busy leading Bible studies, helping with English clubs, directing a school, and more.  The investment you’re making to expand God’s Kingdom in Ukraine is worth it! Thank you!
