Last Bell Ministries presented a program at Oasis Community Church in Tipton, Indiana December 6th, 2010. Elizabeth Millikan spoke, as did Andre Pankyeyev.
Last Bell provides family relationships, security, legal advocacy, life skills training, and stability for the older orphans (14-22) of Zhytomyr, Ukraine, a city of about 300,000. A staff of committed, loving house parents are the centerpiece of the program that rescues children who are headed for prostitution, crime, drug addictions, homelessness, and almost certain failure to assimilate into Ukrainian society.
Music was provided by Joe Rushton, Steve Swan, Steve Millikan, and Elizabeth Millikan, singing “The Power Of Your Name”, first performed by Lincoln Brewster, “Love Me” written by JJ Heller, and “Orphans Of God”, originally recorded by Avalon.
The Wedding Music Project has very close ties with Last Bell Ministries, as 50% of the profits from sales at WMP are donated to Last Bell. During December and part of January 2011, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help keep the doors open during a crisis period for Last Bell.
Presentations were held earlier in December in Carmel, Indiana, at a private residence, at Grace Community Church, and in Indianapolis at Hope of Christ Church.

Thanks to Pastor Kim Drake and Oasis Community Church for opening their doors for this Last Bell event.
Look for all three of these songs on the 2011 CD to raise awareness and funding for this ministry to the older orphan children of Ukraine.
