On Sunday we celebrated Pastor Bob at the SKC campus and presented him with several gifts. Colonial has secured a writer to work with Bob to share his life-long discipleship story. Some fund was had in regard to the book title and you can watch that segment of Sunday’s worship video around the 1:36 mark. A gift of a cruise for Bob and his wife, Gwen, to a destination of their choice was also presented. The Pastor Bob Legacy Fund has been created to provide an annual grant/scholarship in Bob and Gwen’s honor and for a cause of their choosing. If you feel led to give, go to colonialkc.org/give.

Bless Our City
Bless Our City Offering is an annual giving opportunity that allows Colonial to work with and through ministries all over the KC Metro area who are carrying out amazing work in the name of Jesus. We have developed partnerships with these ministries as we co-labor with them through prayer, volunteers, and financial support. Through these partners we are able to help hurting children, families who are homeless, people recovering from alcohol/substance abuse, people who are incarcerated, and women escaping from human trafficking. Prayerfully consider how you might contribute not only financially, but also by sharing your talents and time with one of our partner ministries.

More Stories from Alexsei and Alena
I live in a Christian base in Western Ukraine. The local church here takes care of us refugees very generously. Many men have already been mobilized for the war from this small town. Every day buses are loaded with soldiers and leave. Many tears, pain and parting. The local church wants to help these soldiers by buying vests for them. This is a big deficit now in Ukraine. I have found vests for them through our contacts. I’m waiting for their delivery. Aleksey and the pastor of the local church will go to the military commissar, find out the lists of soldiers who need vests. So, the church will be able to contact with the soldiers directly, help them with vests, find out what other equipment they need as well. The Church will take care over the families of these soldiers. It will be both physical care and an opportunity to pray for these soldiers, their families, send them Bibles, and care for their families. Thanks to Colonial Presbyterian Church from Kansas we will buy 10 vests for these soldiers. This will be the first attempt, the beginning of establishing connections with the military commissar and soldiers. We plan to continue buying body vests and other needs for soldiers. This time one vest costs $350.

Liliya and Zhenya are CRU missionaries in Mykolaiv Ukraine (southeast corner where much bombing has occurred). Zhenya is also a Chaplain for the Ukraine army and he shared his experience with us during both our 2016 and 2018 Colonial mission trips. They are staying in Mykolaiv in order to minister and care for many people who cannot leave the city, especially the very poor, the elderly, and the disabled. They have been reaching out to surrounding Christians in neighboring countries and acquiring food, water, medicine, and other essential supplies and delivering those to the people in need. They also have raised funds to purchase a bus – see their message below:
“Our dear friends! We’re so grateful to you all! We’ve collected $13200 for the bus. Now our friends are looking for it in Europe and Ukraine. We’ll register it for our church. May God bless you all. All the donations we’ll receive will be used for gas, medicine and food for those who stayed in Mykolaiv or for those we evacuate and accompany. Please continue praying for Ukraine, for our ministry and repentance of Russians “
