Editor’s Note: The images below were provided by an SGA-supported pastor who oversees many churches in a region in Ukraine.
When you read the words of SGA-supported Pastor Vladimir’s report below, you cannot help but think of the Apostle Paul. Despite the hardships Paul endured which he summarizes in 2 Corinthians 11 — including imprisonment, beatings, sleepless nights, hunger, thirst, cold, and exposure — he persevered and gave thanks for God’s work and believers of the churches who joined him in ministry.
As war continues in Ukraine, Pastor Vladimir has taken time to thank you today and is grateful for the support you and other caring friends have provided for your Christian brothers and sisters in crisis. Please pray for these saints in the Lord as they continue to serve and share the Gospel in the harshest of circumstances.
