Editor’s Note: The images below were provided by two SGA-supported churches in Ukraine.
In different regions of Ukraine, two SGA-supported pastors and their churches continue to show others that God has not forgotten them in the midst of the war around them.
Under the shepherding of Vladislav and Sergei, these congregations are faithfully sharing what they have — fresh-baked bread, food packages, and other emergency aid — to help meet physical needs that open the door to providing spiritual help for hurting hearts.
Despite the bombs, the gunfire, the ongoing destruction, God’s people are still showing Christ’s love by serving those in need in tangible ways. As you look at the faces in the images you see now, please pray for Vladislav, Sergei, and for every person who is receiving urgent humanitarian help in the Ukraine war. We pray that more people will come to know Jesus and receive healing and hope in this crisis.
“‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’” (Matthew 25:35-40)
In a time of great fear and uncertainty, God is bringing help, healing, and hope to the people of Ukraine through SGA-supported seminaries, pastors, churches, and 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 food for 10 days, medicine, warm clothing, shoes, and Scripture materials.
