For more than four years, eastern Ukraine has been a war zone. Armed conflict with separatist militias has shattered thousands of lives, killed more than 10,000 people, and devastated local infrastructure in several towns and villages.
Yet amid the sorrow, chaos and bloodshed, God is doing an amazing thing. The gifts of SGA partners in the U.S. and Canada helped make it possible to provide much needed Sunday school materials for needy children in these regions. SGA-sponsored missionary pastor Alexander Nagirnyak wrote us from Ukraine’s Donetsk region to send his love and thanksgiving . . .
Dear brothers and sisters,
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you so much for your concern and for your prayers! On behalf of the children and our Sunday school teachers, we thank you for the funds that have been used to purchase Sunday school materials. The children are happy and joyful to learn something new about God! May God richly bless you in His mighty ways!
Sunday school supplies were also distributed to children who had attended Immanuel’s Child Christmas programs back in January. None of it could have been done without you—our faithful partners. Please pray for peace to come to eastern Ukraine soon. Pray also that God will provide more urgently needed resources for SGA’s Crisis Evangelism Fund, which assists needy families with humanitarian aid as well as Bibles and evangelistic literature.
Pastor Oleg's church reached more than 250 people through SGA-supported Compassion Ministry, and some have started attending church services!
The Lord continued to sustain SGA-supported Bible training, not just in heavily damaged Ukraine, but also in other former Soviet countries.
Your donation will help change lives in former Soviet Union countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
