A Refuge And A Light In Kharkiv

In this report from SGA-supported Pastor Gennady, we learn of the damage sustained in the eastern portion of the Kharkiv region as the war in Ukraine continues. Several villages have been evacuated and the need here is growing. The pastor shares:

“The Kharkiv region continues to suffer from the war. Many of our people are in a difficult situation. They have no jobs and desperately need food. Also, many people are displaced because they lost their homes and are temporarily staying in different places where they were able to settle.

Our church would like to thank you for the food aid we received from you in August. Such care from your side gave us the opportunity to continue our ministry among unbelievers in the region. Our volunteers prepare all the food packages, and we deliver them to all those who need this help!

Many people are in the villages where the fighting is going on very close to them. Our church has about 450 church members who remain in the Kharkiv region and also need food aid. We also have 900-1,000 non-believers whom we support and help on a regular basis. They often come to pastors and ministers for counseling, and many of them come to small groups where we study the Word of God.

Teenagers attend a teenage program, and younger children participate in a children’s camp. The food that you so lovingly provided to us was used also to serve lunches to the children in the children’s camp. The children also learned how to cook themselves, and master classes were held for them. Volunteers from our church are constantly delivering aid to people in the liberated villages of Kharkiv, Luhansk, and Donetsk regions.

Dear friends of SGA, dear sponsors! Your help is a great blessing for both Christians and many non-believers. May the Lord be glorified through this ministry! This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. (2 Corinthians 9:12).”

In a time of great uncertainty, God is bringing help, healing, and hope to the people of Ukraine through SGA-supported pastors, churches, a seminary, and SGA-supported Compassion Ministry. Be a part of God’s incredible work with your generosity and prayer support.  

Your gift of compassion helps struggling people with emergency aid that generally includes Scripture materials, food, medicine, warm clothing, and shoes.
