Editor’s Note: The testimony below was provided by an SGA-supported missionary pastor in Ukraine.
Be encouraged as you see the images below and read words of gratitude sent recently from SGA-supported Pastor Alexander. “We are grateful to God for the granted opportunity to serve with you,” he says. And thanks to the generosity and prayers of friends like you, spiritual family members are sharing His love with people in need in wartime Ukraine!
This seemingly satisfied but very tired military (intelligence) has received the aid from our church in the form of groceries (vermicelli, canned food, tea, coffee, cookies, etc.) My brother and I went to a so-called hot place, where the soldiers were in dire need of food and major essentials. We had a very pleasant time and opportunity to witness about Christ, and had a chance to pray for peace and for the protection of the soldiers’ lives. A few days later, the village was shelled, but the good Lord saved the lives of the soldiers.
We delivered potatoes and onions to the canteen where our defenders are being based.
We brought vitamins (apples, pears, oranges) to the defenders who left the battlefield with injuries and wounds.
We had such an adventure as well. These are our Ukrainian roads, and a pit was hiding in a puddle.
In the picture you can see a serviceman Sergey, who cannot feel his legs. We have been praying for him to realize that a human himself can do nothing without God. Sergey says that he will get back on his feet, although he does not reject the fact that only God can help. Two weeks later he was sent abroad for surgery and rehabilitation. We just pray and witness of God.
At one of the Sunday services we had a great joy. We got excited because of the conversion of two women who moved from the village of [a Ukrainian] district. They both lost their property and could hardly lose their lives. We rejoice that God is a living God and works in the hearts of people. Our church has taken care of those women, and we try to do our best helping them. And if it were not you we wouldn’t be able to do that. Thank you for the money you have donated! We present people with Bibles as a gift.
The church also helped our defenders at the front with lanterns and some food.
Grocery packages for a large family.
This is a girl with head injuries and burns from a fire that occurred before the war in Ukraine. Not so long ago, to be exact, ten months ago she gave birth to a baby girl and needed diapers, which we brought her. We witnessed her about Christ and prayed for her
They were very happy and excited to receive the gifts from us.
This is the road to the villages where we distributed the aid.
These are happy and grateful people. We are grateful to you!
The trip to the displaced ones . . . was extremely difficult.
All 80 food packages, we have packed, were delivered to the people in need.
This is another young lady with her little eight-month-old baby-girl whom God brought out of the shelling in [a Ukrainian] district.
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-sponsored 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.
