Ministry Update – February 2018

Dear friends and partners of Save a Life International


  • Year of 2017 was full of blessings and challenges that God helped us to overcome. Last year 52 babies were born between 3 Life Centers. Each of them is special and have their personal story of survival. Over 200 women were helped in different ways, through the counseling, material help, were helped with food and the place to live.
  • Two new Life Centers were opened in the city of Zaporizhia (Eastern Ukraine) and city of Khmelnitskiy.
  • Over 5000 students from various colleges in Ukraine attended our presentations about abstinence before marriage and the truth about abortion and the sanctity of life.
  • We had 2 post-abortion recovery camps “Forgiven and Set Free”, where over 30 post-abortive women found healing.
  • With Young Life partners we had 2 camps for young single moms, where they had a chance to relax, socialize and hear about the Gospel, while our volunteers helped with babysitting. Some volunteers from Philadelphia area traveled to serve in this ministry. Such camps are the wonderful opportunity to witness to disadvantaged single moms.
  • More that 3000 students were reached through presentations about sanctity of life and abortions.

In January this year I traveled to Poland with Ukrainian team of leaders to launch the preparation process for starting our first Life Center in Gdynia this year. We trained 16 volunteers from different churches for a week and set up the grounds for their further training. What a great group of men and women. Each of them have their own journey to this ministry and it is unique in every case.

In March we’ll be having an Grand Opening of our 5th Life Center in Odessa, Ukraine.
Prior to this event we will have Post-abortion retreat “ Forgiven and Set Free ” lead by Mika’l Qualls from SC, USA. It is her second trip with Save a Life and we are looking forward to 20 women, who went through abortions in their lives, to be helped and healed by the grace of God through this course.
Also, a week before the Opening of Life Center our abstinence presentation team will be working with the students in the colleges and schools of Odessa. This is the powerful tool to reach out to young people with Pro-life message and the Gospel.


Please pray:

  • That women wouldn’t be afraid to reach out for help
  • For each Life Center counselor as they speak with abortion-minded women.
  • For the New Center team in Odessa, that are going through preparation.
  • For the new teams in Poland and Dunayivtsy.
  • For new partners and supporters as our financial needs grow with rapid expansion of Save a Life Intl.
  • For the new devoted volunteers in Ukraine, Poland as well as in United States.
  • For the wisdom for President and directors of the board, as we search for new members for the Board of Directors.

In Christ,

Nadia Gordynsky
