You may remember that Marina, the granddaughter of SGA-supported Pastor Sergei, was badly injured and lost her leg nearly one year ago when mortar fire struck their home in Ukraine early on during the war. Because friends like you generously gave and prayed, Marina was fitted with a prosthesis and has learned to walk again.
Today, Marina has returned home to her village—and as you can see in the images below, her family’s home is in terrible shape. But as Sergei says in his short report below: “People are returning to their homes . . . this is good news for ministry.”
Will you pray with us that the churches we serve will be equipped to make the most of every opportunity to share the Gospel with hurting Ukrainians? As they attempt to continue to live in these terrible days of destruction in their beloved country, may all who hurt smile like Marina does . . . because they have received Jesus as Lord.

Just wanted to share with you a few pictures from when Marina and her mom came back. This is our family joy, and many thanks to everyone who participated in our painful journey. Yesterday I brought my daughter and granddaughter home. They will live in this house. Something needs to be done with the building, because it is all destroyed by missiles. People are returning to their homes, to destroyed villages, because they cannot live anywhere else. And this is good news for ministry.
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.
