This past Sunday, Simferopol Baptist Church celebrated her 15th year Anniversary with nearly 200 people in attendance. This day commemorated the first Sunday Missionaries Bob and Judy VanSant came to this city and had their first service in their apartment with 12 deaf people. Three of those original 12 were in our services on Sunday.
A few years later, a hearing ministry was started out of the deaf church which later became its own church. Both churches meet in the same building at different times on Sundays and combine for Wednesday evening services. What a privilege to be a part of this church!
