Thanks to friends like you, SGA is now able to provide solar-powered battery systems as we seek to address the long-term needs of churches and their communities in Ukraine. In war-torn Ukraine, power means everything. People rely heavily on cell phones for communication, generators for power and electricity, including charging their cell phones, and even lighting to illuminate church sanctuaries and the grounds outside. All of these benefits enable churches to be important hubs for communities in need—and create a huge opportunity for ministry!
Eric Mock, vice president of ministry operations with SGA says, “These are very cost-effective and, given the fact that these are solar-based, many things can happen and they can still continue to have this opportunity to provide resources. They could run out of fuel. The power system in Ukraine is constantly under attack so they could run out of access to industrial electricity or commercial electricity. These survival kits may be exactly what they need.
“What we’re trying to do is shift our focus to the long-term and look for ways that we can equip these churches to continue to minister to the people’s needs,” Mock says. “But that ministry to their needs is the open door for presenting the Gospel, and hundreds of thousands of people in Ukraine are hearing the Gospel that have never heard it before.”
Check out the short report and images below to see the progress we’ve made getting more of the Solar Power Survival Kits where they’re needed most…
The solar power sets have arrived to us at our home in Ukraine. And the distribution of the sets will begin next week. Thank you for your prayers! As you’ll see in the photos, the power controllers and cables are in the boxes labeled Wet Wipes.
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.
