By God’s grace, the aid caring believers like you are helping to provide through your generosity is opening doors for the Gospel in Ukraine. Many suffering apart from God are hearing of hope.
While we pray for the war to end, we continue to be encouraged by seeing more hurting hearts touched by the Good News of Jesus Christ. May you, too, be encouraged as you read this recent report from SGA-supported Pastor Petro and how God is working through his congregation . . .
On December 8, more than 400 people turned to the church to receive humanitarian aid (in the form of food packages). Those responsible for humanitarian work in the church registered them and provided invitations in paper form for the date of receiving the food kits. Delivery of humanitarian aid by invitation is planned for the Christmas holidays, from December 22-26. There will be a total of six events with a Christmas program. A total of 1,200 Christmas food sets, each weighing 17 pounds, will be distributed. All this will take place in the House of Prayer, which celebrates its 31st year of existence on December 25 in [our city].
Humanitarian aid will be provided to displaced people from Ukraine, displaced people who lived near the borders. Elderly people, people with disabilities, families of war participants, and many others will receive help. We ask you to pray for God’s blessing on holding spiritual and charity events in our church. With thanks and respect to all from the pastors of our church.
Friends, also we are sending you a photo of a family of immigrants . . . who lived in a cellar for two months during the shelling — mother Svetlana, along with daughters Anastasia and Iryna. Their father was at the front from the beginning of the war. Since then, they have not been with him, talked, and they don’t know where he is now — whether he is in captivity or maybe he is gone, he is no longer among the living. The family is looking for any information about her husband and father of the children. Good people gave them our address where they received humanitarian aid.
With thanks and respect to you,
