I’d like to express my gratitude for your attention to our children. Many residents of our children’s home are deprived of parental guardianship due to various circumstances: irresponsible or asocial behaviour of parents, deprivation of paternal rights, illness or death of parents. Most likely, for these reasons, we adults have a certain moral obligation in relation to such children. We ourselves try to improve their lives and ask for the help of others.

We would be very much obliged to you if you find the possibility to congratulate our children on New Year and Christmas.

The teaching staff and students of middle school #20 of the city of Dzerzhinsk express their sincere gratitude to the group of teachers from the USA and Teresa Fillmon personally for organizing a seminar on Living a Healthy Lifestyle. We greatly appreciate your work with the teenagers of our school on the topics of destructive habits, early sexual relations, AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases.

Thank you so much for your wonderful donation of test strips, glucometers and syringes. Our Diabetic Association here in Donetsk, Ukraine has only 18 members but we are trying to keep them in insulin and glucometers plus the testing strips to check their blood sugar. Your generous donation has helped us so much. Some of our members are amputees to diabetes that got out of control. Some of them are totally blind. We are hoping that doesn’t happen again. This we are trying to prevent!
I once again wish to express my immense appreciation for your contribution toward helping the diabetics most of whom are fellow Christians! Their needs are very real! They cannot possibly provide for buying glucometers, strips, plus insulin, the life saving drug they cannot live without!
Each month we minister to 18 diabetics, 4 of which are juvenile diabetics. It now costs $1300-1400 per month to keep our organization going and able to help those in desperate needs for their very lives. And we are very appreciated to everyone who helps to those people. Because if we have no money to provide their medicines and the testing strips, they can lose hope to live.

As the one who purchases and administers these funds and supplies let me thank you personally for making my job of serving these people easier!

In Christian love,
Ludmila Torshina

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Florida,

I thank Teresa Fillmon and God for this great work that has been done with kids in Dzerzhinsk Internot. This is an incredible labor and it can’t be estimated financially because it involved love, and warmth of heart and soul. Also brothers and sisters that came this time have helped a lot; kids were glad to have this time in the camp. Their eyes were filled with joy when they saw their teachers. They completed their tasks with pleasure and were always ready to answer questions from the Bible.

This whole they’ll keep their new friends in their memories and they will be looking forward to meeting them again.

May God always give strength to Teresa and her family, to all brothers and sisters that came here. May the Church grow spiritually and may God reward everybody up to what they have done.

With love of Christ Jesus our Savior,

“Hi Teresa,
Thank you again for your help with this project. We were able to accomplish this because of His Kids Too stepping up and providing half the funds to purchase this industrial fridge. It inspired others to give the money for the other half!

Many blessings,
Beth T. ”
