Tatiana Kochan's Testimony!

After a dramatic turning to God, Tanya shares her testimony with everyone she meets - at churches, the student center, and face to face. On the 21st of June, she will be sharing it at First Baptist in Pigeon Forge to a large audience which will include a large number of international studens. Please pray for her and for Alex, who will be translating for the students.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Greetings,

On behalf of the Kotchan family, our ministry team, and young people from all around the world, we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2015 New Year!

This past year we've been blessed with amazing ministry opportunities: we were able to present the Gospel to young people from 22 different countries, which many like Turkey or China are simply very difficult to reach through "traditional missions". It was a very busy year requiring much work, but we are pleased to report to you that 128 students prayed to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. These young people, who are studying to be future professionals and often come from influential families, spent 4 months of "intense discipleship" with us by attending church services, breaking bread together and learning how to pray, etc. We invested much in ministering to the students: spending quality time, providing transportation, feeding large groups, helping with housing, providing study materials and many other needs. All of this was provided because of your generous giving. Together we made a great difference. Through your gift, you've touched lives of young people from different provinces in China, Uzbekistan, Macedonia, a small town in Siberia Russia, Turkey, and many other countries. These students didn't have the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, but now they are different and will never be the same because of the Gospel. They have now returned to their native lands and brought Jesus back with them. You sent effective missionaries all over the world by your support of this unique ministry.

As we continue supporting and discipling these students from the past 6 years through the online church, we are also getting ready for the new outreach season of 2015. Thousands of new students will be arriving shortly, and there are so many needs. Will you please help us continue share the Gospel in 2015? We would like to ask you to prayerfully consider financially supporting this upcoming 2015 outreach season. Whether it’s a one time gift or a monthly donation, all will be greatly appreciated and used for the glory of God’s kingdom work. Even small gifts given monthly can make a huge difference when many individuals unite for a common purpose.

As a "Thank you" for your support of our ministry, we would like to send you a copy of our Simple Steps DVD where Alexei shares in detail the strategy God gave him to restore "his temple.” The DVD provides the scriptures from God's Word which deeply impacted him, as well as the practical steps which helped him to loose 120 pounds in less then one year. Please, send us back an e-mail if you are interested in receiving a copy.

Look forward hearing from you,

Alexei, Tanya and Nations for Christ Ministry Team

Our "children" go home

It's a time of the year when we begin saying goodbyes to our "kids from around the world". With our students from Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Tajikistan, getting ready to drive to Knoxville to take some of them to the bus station. Please, pray for students as they travel to their native countries and please, continue to pray for our outreach ministry. 117 students already prayed to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior this season.

"As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God."

Rom. 9:25

Thai friends

Taking my Thai friends to Knoxville as they begin their journey back home. Their lives were impacted by God's grace. My heart was heavy this morning, they all are from Bangkok. Please, pray for their safety as the political unrest increases in Thailand. Paul's father (young man right to me) is a colonel in the Thai Army and is involved in the coup. Paul accepted Christ and we are planning to continue online discipleship

Students from Ukraine just arrived

New students from Ukraine just arrived. Last Wednesday took them to church along with students from 4 more countries: Russia, Uzbekistan, Jamaica and Tajikistan. 9 students prayed to receive Christ! What a joy! Please continue to pray. Please pray for our family: yesterday Tanya called me twice from Oak Ridge with disturbing news, first time she called the air conditioner at the house has stopped working, second time she called when our van was hit by another car while Tanya was driving back home from visiting a friend in hospital. Good news, no one was hurt and van is drivable but it needs some repair and we both got some stress. I guess we do well sharing Good News if someone in the air is so unhappy! I know that our Lord is Great and Mighty and He is going to take care of all our needs, just as He promised!
