Meet our volunteers!
Ihor Demenko: “Open Bible had a big influence on my spiritual development and on my becoming a Christian; they gave me the chance to try out children’s work and for this I am very grateful.” Halya Pavlenko: “Open Bible is much more for me than just a camp or an organisation. It’s a big part of my life, it’s the starting point of my relationship with God. I wanted to become a Christian myself through one of Open Bible’s children’s camps.”
Glory to our Lord for the 2018 camps!

“Open Bible” Charitable Foundation Prayer calendar: September 2018 Dear friends, glory and praise to our Lord Jesus Christ for the past summer! We experienced His mercy in that He gave us an understanding of His will and the strength to complete what He entrusted us with. Again and again we saw His love and grace in what happened. This was seen in the people He sent to our teams (as coordinators, leaders, helpers and kitchen staff), in the children who were at the various camps, and in the funds which He sent from His generous hands. We will also thank Him for the children, teenagers and young people who were at the camps, and pray that they will grow in the knowledge of our Lord. May the Lord reward out of His riches all who prayed for our ministry, who gave their time, talents and health working zealously in the service of children and the Lord and who gave money for the extension of God’s Kingdom. We are looking forward to a special blessing from God on 8 September 2018 when we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Open Bible’s ministry in Ukraine. We want to thank the Lord for these years of ministry together with our friends who have supported us for all those years. Together we will look into the future and ask for an understanding of God’s will and His guidance for our continuing ministry. We also invite you to join us in celebrating and praying. On the 15 September we invite all the participants in our summer camps to a picnic at which we will be announcing our plans for weekly clubs. We have plans for improvements to the campsite at Vorzel. We ask you also to pray for the opportunity to take part. In September we are beginning a new programme for the spiritual development of young people that will continue throughout the year – a gap year programme. There are three participants, Andriy Nechayev, Andriy Stupak and Nikita Potapov. We need your prayer and financial support for this ministry! We wish you abundant blessings!
Sincerely yours, Grigori Stupak
