The atmosphere was charged with excitement as over 90 women gathered for the first-ever Women Together Christmas outreach in Poltava, Ukraine on Saturday, January 5, 2019. (In Ukraine, Christmas is traditionally celebrated on January 7). Women came from several churches and many of them invited friends who had never attended a Christian women’s event before.
The singing, beautiful violin solo, and performance of the popular Christmas song “Mary Did You Know?” by Veronika Nuzhna and her daughter Emily added to the wonderful atmosphere of celebrating the birth of Christ together.
Four leaders formed a “talk show” panel, discussing God’s miracles today and sharing stories of amazing answers to prayer in their own lives and in lives of people in their community.
Events like these serve to build relationships and friendships.
More are planned for the future.
