The practical care of Christians in our church network is always accompanied by Gospel conversations. And each time a simple stove is shared with Ukrainians in need, hearts are touched with the love of Christ.
As you read Pastor Alexander’s report below, will you pray for the family his congregation helped? It is clear from their responses that their hearts, too, have been touched and we pray they will soon come to have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. Read more from Alexander . . .
“Greetings dear friends and sponsors in the ministry! May the Lord Jesus Christ give you peace!
At this difficult time for Ukrainians, especially for those people who were forced to leave their homes due to their being destroyed by the shelling of Russian troops or the threat of death from enemy shells and bullets. These people came to the villages of our region and settled in houses that had not been lived in for a long time (abandoned).
We are thankful to our sponsors for supporting us financially and materially in our ministry to these very categories of refugees. The stoves that came from Zaporizhzhia through SGA are serving these people very well. They are very grateful to the Christians who care about them. In the picture, a man Vyacheslav ( a disabled person from childhood) and his wife Olena, also a disabled person from childhood, have been forced to live in the village because they fled the attacks that terrified their two children from the Kherson region.
The stationary stove in their house had collapsed, and this metal stove is just what they need to warm their tea and cook some simple meals. Unfortunately, there are no children in the picture, as they were attending classes at the local school . . . at the time of our visit. They are very much thankful for your help.
