Despite the Ukraine war, children from Mariupol, Zaporizhia, and Mykolayiv found refuge on the territory of our "Living Word" school. For two months in a row, they had art therapy in daily needlework classes. They burned wood, painted paintings, decorated bags, made bracelets and decoupage. Some of them were given to good people to make new friends in Lviv. The idea to organize a fair for the needs of refugee children was supported by the government directorate. We thank our partner friends for organizing games, with cookies that raised $600 for refugee children.
Restore a Child is excited to share the Adventist Possibility Ministries logo with members, pastors, churches, and conferences. We have been part of the General Conference Adventist Possibility Ministries since 2016. Restore a Child is a member of the General Conference Task Force for Orphans. Dr. Larry Evans, Assistant to President Ted Wilson, shared this logo with us to use as needed.

Indonesia... Global Impact

Together, with Dr. Jonathan Kuntaraf, there have been 377 baptisms, 339 academy graduates and 88 university graduates .
