Pure religion and undefiled before God and
the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,
and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27

CHILDREN'S CAMP ON THE RIVER...
MORE BLESSINGS, FUN, MIRACLES...and now WEDDING PARTIES!!
River of Joy camps each and
features but in one thing they
have managed thus far to be
alike. Half of the kids that
come have been invited
dysfunctional families, or from
children's institutions that
house children who have no
parents...orphans. These are
children in need of love,
attention and most of all
Jesus Christ.

Each year the miracle
happens for them and they
have repented before the
end of camp. We baptised
two children in the river this
year and if we had caregivers
permission would have
baptised more.

Many thanks to the sponsors
& volunteers whose support
and prayers in cooperation
with the Lord,  have made
ROJ Camp miracles possible.

As the River site grows into
our vision there will be many
more camps & opportunities
for families to find children
here they can take into care
and time together to find
those who will fit into their
families.
VItalli Yartsev was a most popular counsillor-teacher-musician in
ROJ Camp 2011. Just at the end of camp he asked if he could do his
wedding at River of Joy. We agreed and on August 26 he said "I do!"  
to his bride Anna Zhenyikova in these beautiful surroundings.
help recreate and restore Christian family life in Ukraine. Now we seem to be about starting such families as well!  Deep down when VItalli asked
us to help him do his wedding here,  we knew he would set an example for others. It has happened as we felt it would. After Vitalli and Anna's
beautiful wedding we have had two more young Ukrainian missionaries request permission to have their "Sviedba'" - wedding party at River of Joy.
Please join us in praying that River of Joy Orphan Village grows into a full blown center of child and family healing and health.
