Testimony from Kiev UBF ex member 
10th-Jan-2008 05:27 pm
Today the CIS UBF Directors conference begins in Kiev, Ukraine. They held it in Kiev this year since Kiev UBF just finished construction of their new “Bible house”. Peter Kim, the director of Kiev UBF for years, is considered an exemplary missionary in UBF: he was invited to the US to deliver special reports on “rising disciples”, he was one of the main speakers at the last world mission report, he was praised in all UBF publications and so on.

Here is the translation of the testimony of Andrey S., former member of Kiev UBF, who wrote it on a Russian Christian Internet forum on November 24, 2007 (here). Andrey was one of the key members of Kiev UBF. Exactly one year ago, Andrey had been praised by Peter Kim in his mission report at the 2007 CIS UBF directors conference as the most successful group leader. But several weeks ago he was expelled from Kiev UBF by Peter Kim. What was the reason for that? Did Andrey commit any sin? No. He just told Peter Kim that UBF “had to go through repentance for its detestable acts in the past”.

The brother responsible for the construction of the building was also dismissed from his position as soon as he publicly opposed Peter Kim. He was dismissed when the building was almost finished. Buildings were always more important for UBF than the truth and holiness.

I think many things have changed not only in CIS and Mongolia. As far as I know, mostly all followers in Sofia (Bulgaria) also left UBF. We can read about this, for example, in this conference report by Peter Chang. Some expressions from it:
"Even though we experienced pain before the conference when several shepherds left because of Satan’s work...."
"In spite of Satan’s attack on Bulgaria students through an anti-UBF internet site we thank God for Geogi and Maria who stood firm and became the Abraham and Maria of faith for Bulgaria."

That's good to hear. Yes, there is probably a lot more going on. I have also heard about long-time members leaving in the Spanish speaking countries. (By the way, we should not call these things "changes". UBF itself never really changed. Only people leave with disillusionment, after years of abuse. But that's not something new.)
