Olena and her elderly mother moved to a new Ukrainian city as refugees. Both were able to receive emergency aid shipped form an SGA-supported church in Poland. However, getting their physical needs met was not enough.

Disturbed in her spirit, Olena continually seeks out spiritual support and answers about eternity, becoming close to those at the church. In a conversation with a church minister, Olena mentioned her fears for the future.

In response to her fears, the church minister explained to Olena biblical truths about salvation, how to confess sins, and becoming a part of God’s family.

“She listed with sparks in her eyes and gazed at the biblical texts,” said Pastor Grigoriy, “which says that Christians are a royal priesthood, a holy nation.”

Olena wrote down Bible quotes and continues to reflect on their meaning at church. Day by day, the Lord is using local ministers during a time of great need to reach those who are looking for answers for the glory of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Grigory added, “Praise God that every day He brings more people like Olena into our lives!”

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.
