The history of christian ministry Choose Life

Agape ministry cooperates and supports Ukrainian ministry Choose Life

"Deliver those who are drawn toward death,

And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter" (Proverbs 24:11).

Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For… I was sick and you visited Me.” (Matthew 25:34-36).

The most astonishing thing is that we are now able to freely share the Word of God with these AIDS victims; to tell them about Christ, and no one interferes with our ministry!

The goal of Ministry Choose Life is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to support individuals infected with the AIDS Virus. Christians from this ministry visit these people in their homes or in hospice clinics and share the Gospel. Many of these people are terminally ill.
This ministry was initiated several years ago through visitation of AIDS-infected individuals in their homes. However, we were hoping and praying to reach a larger segment of the AIDS-infected population residing in a hospice clinic in Kiev. We really wanted to bring the Word of Salvation to those who were quickly approaching death. Finally, in 2009, God had answered our prayers. After we exchanged some correspondence with the doctor in charge of the hospice clinic, we were granted a 2-year contract to come and share the Gospel with patients dying from AIDS.

 


In 2009, Choose Life ministry workers visited 548 AIDS-infected individuals, 177 of whom gad their lives to Jesus.

At the present time, many Christians from different churches of Kiev participate in this ministry. However, the demand for volunteers is still enormous! Every AIDS hospice clinic in Ukraine needs to have Christian ministers available to the patients. These people need hope and emotional support which only Jesus Christ can provide during their difficult time of illness and transition to eternity. We constantly pray that one day every AIDS clinic in Ukraine will be incorporated in the work of Ministry Choose Life
