“God gives us strength,” a women’s group at Pastor Ruslan’s church shared recently. While on a trip in Ukraine, SGA’s Eric Mock had the opportunity to visit seven small churches like Ruslan’s. Please lift up all congregations served by SGA in Ukraine. May God continue to provide for their ongoing needs in a time of war and draw more hurting people to Himself.

Pastor Eugene is thanking God for you and your role in reaching hurting Ukrainians with emergency aid and the Gospel: “There are not enough words to express the gratitude that overflows in my heart for all the help you give us. But especially grateful are people who have been left without work and income because of the war. Many of them have been attending our church regularly lately, thanks to the food aid that we give them, because of you. . . . So you fulfill this important ministry, for which the Lord, I believe, will reward you in a special way.”

Pastors like Oleh take joy in sharing the Lord’s work in the lives of displaced Ukrainians during the war. He recently shared the testimonies of Natalia and Alexandra. Please pray for Natalia’s heart to soften as she sees God’s Word changing her—and pray that Alexandra will continue to bear fruit after deciding to follow Jesus.

After Olga’s home in Mariupol, Ukraine was destroyed in the war, her family packed a few things and “left for nowhere.” But in God’s providence, that “nowhere” became the loving community of SGA-supported Pastor Ruslan’s church in a different region. “Thank God for the meeting with the ‘Bethlehem’ church, where we can have a rest for our souls,” Olga says. “Our hearts find peace when we hear the Word of God.” Please pray for continued healing and spiritual growth for Olga and her family.

Please rejoice in the salvation of Ukrainians like Igor who have turned to Jesus Christ and pray for their spiritual growth. After hearing that Pastor Gennady’s church was distributing food aid, he went there to receive help for his family. “When I came, I realized that I wanted to stay there and listen to everything that was being said in this church. So the Holy Spirit led me to repent of my sins and be baptized . . . This is also thanks to the food aid that was given to us, otherwise I don’t know how long I would have wandered in this sinful world.”

Please pray for the safety of team members as they minister the Gospel to those who are affected by the chaos of war in Ukraine. May they be filled with hope in this difficult time.

I Will Pray For This

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine is leaving men, women and children tired and weary. They have witnessed so many tragedies. Please lift them up in prayer. Pray for extra strength, energy, courage, and mostly peace for their hearts. We must not forget our brothers and sisters in Christ who so greatly need our support and encouragement. May the love of God bring them comfort and healing.

SGA-supported Pastor Vlad’s van was hit by a drone while he was evacuating the elderly in an embattled city in Ukraine. “As of now, after the first shock,  I feel much pain,” Vlad says. “I was always aware that sooner or later it could happen, but we have to do it, take risks,  because people’s lives are more important.” Please pray for our dear brother in Christ. We praise God for His protection and ask Him to guide the hands of the surgeon who will operate on Vlad’s badly-injured  leg.

Pray for Ukraine

War is now raging between Russia and Ukraine. In Ukraine, fathers, husbands, brothers, sons… all men must stay behind to defend their country. And the women, children, and elderly who can escape are fleeing with almost nothing! But getting stuck on roadsides, and with infrastructure damaged or over-used – and even dangerous shelling – they risk death. If they survive the harrowing journey to safety, they must then find shelter. But churches, civic centers, and homes are filling up quickly. Those who stay in Ukraine will surely suffer the most, and the impact on children will be unthinkable. Ukrainians need our urgent, intercessory prayers, and our physical help.
