Greetings Friends and Family,
     Happy New Year!  As many of you know, four months ago a total of seven of us packed up and moved to Chornomorsk, a city right outside of Odessa, Ukraine to follow the Lord and plant a church. Who are these seven?  The Pebelier family:  Ryan and Jenny, Chase and Sage, Rylan and Tanya; and our dear friend Janice who has been a missionary in Ukraine for over 20 years.  Our heart has been to wait on the Lord and trust in His timing to officially start and launch our church. Since our arrival, we have been having Sunday afternoon bible studies in a nearby restaurant and a midweek bible study at Pastor Ryan’s house. As we meet people and invite them we’ve had some new people come. 
     As of now, our goal is to officially launch “Oasis Church” this year in late 2020. But before the actual launch date there are some things that need to take place. Just recently we found a small building to rent.  We will be renting the space on Sundays for three hours. The rent is 50usd per month for one day each week, but we are hoping to secure the space for twice a week so that we could use the building for a midweek service also.  Right now we need to get Russian/English bibles, curtains, signs, invitation cards, simple sound equipment, tv or projector, cajon etc.  But our biggest need right now is chairs.  Chairs cost 465uah »$19.62/each at the current exchange rate.  Please prayerfully consider partnering with our church financially as we follow God in launching OASIS CHURCH and seeing this city come to know Christ. Whether it’s one chair, one time, weekly, or a monthly gift; it goes a long way here in Ukraine.
     We estimate we would need about $300 USD monthly to provide for the churches expenses plus one time purchases such as sound, chairs etc. Being that we are starting from scratch, and our leadership/ launching team is small, we are incapable of paying for this alone. Also, we will not be relying on or prompting any Ukrainians to support this church plant at this time. This transition should occur when the Holy Spirit leads those who call Oasis Church their home to give. Our hope is to bring new believers in and as you know through experience it takes time for new believers to take this step of faith.  We would ask if you are feeling a moving of the spirit to prayerfully consider partnering with us financially as we follow God in launching Oasis Church and seeing this city come to know Christ. 
     We are beyond excited as we take each step. God has a plan for this city, and for Oasis Church. If you want to know how to give you can do so here and by captioning the gift as “OASIS”. And if you have any questions or would like to hear more about our mission and our vision here you can message us on messenger or email below. Thank you to those who have supported us throughout the years in prayer, emotionally, and financially. It means so much to us knowing there are people on the other side of the world that have our back. You can give below by clicking the Paypal button below. 
This whole journey has been amazing for us as a group and for Tanya and I as a couple. Starting our marriage moving to a new city has been stretching, and has drawn us closer to each other and the Lord. This Christmas season has been especially exciting for us being that it was our first Christmas as a couple and Tanya's first time celebrating Christmas with American traditions. We are so glad to be here and to be venturing on this journey as church planters. 2020 is going to be an amazing year. There are some exciting things in the works, and some that God hasn't revealed to us yet, but we are ready. We hope to send out a letter every month or so, sharing about what God is doing at our church, in and through us. Please be praying for us as a couple and our entire Oasis team. Its amazing knowing we have people on our side praying and interceding for us. Just as a reminder, we are missionaries here and I am not allowed to work here in Ukraine, so we are fully supported by God supporting us through many of you. Finances are  a big prayer request for Tanya and I. If you feel lead to give you can at the "Paypal" button above. We love you guys. May this year be a year of knowing, learning, and experiencing Gods love and grace like never before. We will talk to you soon. God bless!
