In 2013, things were progressing on schedule for the ministry in Lugansk, Ukraine.

They had a medical office in a great location in the city. They were getting ready to purchase furniture and some more medical equipment to help move their facility forward and assist in spreading the Good News of Jesus through medical missions.
