Editor’s Note: The image and report below were provided by an SGA-supported pastor in Ukraine.
SGA-supported Pastor Oleksandr in western Ukraine struggled to care for the IDPs [internally displaced persons] who had come to his church. By God’s grace—and through the generosity of friends like you—we were able to provide him with a generator and aid! In his report below, you can see the impact of his church. It is truly as a center of heat and hope . . .
Greetings in the Lord, dear brothers and sisters!
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the generator we received for our church. Since the very first days of the war, IDPs have been staying in our House of Prayer. Some of them went on to live abroad, others stayed and then later returned if their territories were already released.
Today, we have 20 people staying with us, mostly from the Donetsk region, who have nowhere to go back to. We have tried to organize all the necessary conditions for their long-term stay to ensure that their basic needs are met. But it was very difficult when the electricity was cut off. We have a gas heating system, and it is impossible to provide heat to the rooms when there is no electricity. That’s why we were looking for a generator that could provide support in case of a power crisis.
We thank the Lord and people who provided us with this wonderful opportunity by giving us a generator. Although today the situation with electricity has stabilized a bit, the war is still ongoing, and this donation will provide stability in heating the church where people are living, including small children. And in case of a power crisis, we will continue to be able to have meetings both for the church and for the IDPs we serve.
May the Lord protect you from harm and bless you abundantly!
