There comes a moment in lives of every single person when you feel unnecessary, not wanted in this world. Like life tossed you overboard and slowly takes back everything it have given you before. There is an emptiness and meaninglessnes inside. I am at a dead-lock and dont want to live like this, but still hesitating to step down into the abyss. I am like still waiting for something, but what for - I have no clue.
Good day! I usualy don't share my thoughts and experiences with others, but looking at the people you really helped something clicked in me. In early childhood, I lost my father and later grew up without him. He committed suicide, and recently I found his suicide note. Now, after so much time, terrible thoughts of quitting life are spinning in my head too, but thanks to you, I have found a way to deal with thoughts of suicide.
I am addicted. I cannot quite alcohol and tabacco. I am not equal to this task. Please help me.
I am on the ragged edge and don't know what to do - jump off or step back? Where I can find strength after wife's betrayal? Tell me how shall I live with it?
I am drug addicted; I have two little girls, who most likely will be taken away from me. Nor housing, or work or desire to live ... I hit a wall! Today we overnight in a brothel, but I have no clue about tomorrow. To kill myself, ain't got the guts, I tried ... I wish all this is just over.

Thanks to it people from our church now get known each other, correspond with each other, reach and lead to God dozens of people from our region. And the local church got an amazing tool for gospel sharing and own development!
Church "Vera, Nadezhda, Lyubov" Odessa,
I feel the seriousness and tangibility of people's troubles which I faced after connecting to CV Outreach. When you think, that they are writing to you from you town, that these are people who are next to you and they need God, then you realize that it is you who should share the Gospel with them, ho may offer a personal meeting, and this is a great foundation - peronal intimate relationships with a person.
Church "Pobeda", Dnepr
It is very easy to connect people, as they potentialy may come into your church later. It makes glad, that quite a lot of people are writing and they are all from your town. I believe that God will grow the sown seed.
Church "Zhizn", Lviv
In CV Outreach mostly write young people. We have a fruit already - one prayer of repentance. The guy couldn't sleep at all; he used to hear voices, felt anxiety and fears. After the prayer everything went well. I am going to invite him to church.
