Wedding Shower for Unknown Brides!

Thursday night was the Women's Missionary Fellowship evening event, a wedding shower for brides in Moldova and Ukraine. Four wedding gowns were purchased at thrift stores and four women from the church donated their own wedding gowns. Money was collected to pay the cost of purchasing and dry cleaning four gowns, and shipping all eight gowns to Ukraine where they will be distributed between the two countries. Special guest was Irene Sologubenco who is visiting from Moldova. In addition to working in women's and children's ministries, Irene works along side her husband, Eugene, who is president of Moldova Bible Seminary and co- pastors Chisinau Bible Church. The ladies at the shower had fun creating a tissue paper wedding gown for Irene. A highlight of the evening was when our beloved missionary, Cheri Strahm, telephoned from Kiev, Ukraine to thank the women of New Life Church for making her vision of sending wedding gowns to Eastern Europe a reality.
