Serhii is the commander of a military unit in Ukraine. He testified to the Ukrainian Bible Society the importance of the Bible for soldiers.

Pastor Jean Peterschmitt, founder of the Christian Open Door, large Evangelical Church in Mulhouse, died on Saturday June 11. Since the announcement of his death, messages have multiplied on social networks to pay tribute to the Alsatian pastor. The new president of the National Council of Evangelicals of France (CNEF), Erwan Cloarec, notably hailed on Twitter a "man of heart, and a great man of faith".

Last weekend, more than 68 people gathered in Rio de Janeiro to listen to the message of hope preached by American evangelist Franklin Graham. He particularly dwelled on the love of the Lord and explained to the crowd that God loves each person and “that he sent his Son Jesus Christ into this world to save us from our sins”.

According to Fox News Digital, "thousands of people responded to the invitation of the Gospel" as a result of this preaching.
