House of Hope, Odessa, residents and team

The House of Hope in Odessa accommodates homeless kids and orphans. It is headed by Ps Petr Emelyanov and team and not only provides a home for the kids but also seeks to guide them in their education and training for their life ahead. Many of the children have given their lives to our Lord through the Word and the love that they have received whilst at the house. Petr and team also seek to influence the community around the house through activities open to all children.

We received the following budget from Petr with this message:
“We appreciate your prayers and support immensely. With many humble thanks. Petr Emelyanov”
