There are two stories in the words below—one being a lonely woman who just can’t leave her home, even as there is no electricity, water, or gas, and another of a Russian pastor supported through SGA, who along with his team, faithfully continues to help those in Russia occupied Ukraine.
There is a much bigger picture here than any of us can comprehend. People forced to leave their homes because of Russian military forces and then Russian men and women, in the name of God, ministering to those left behind. There are two countries in this war, but there is one family of God. Praying that His purposes will reign as He continues to use His children for His glory.
Vlad is thankful to SGA for funds for wood stoves. They have installed all the stoves, and their team member Vadim has sent a short story about one woman who lives all alone in her village . . .
This woman lives all alone in her village. She is the only person who remains living in her block of the building, as all other residents have evacuated. She was previously keeping in touch with her family, but she has now lost all connections. She gave us a phone number of her relatives and asked us to contact them to tell them that she was fine. We contacted her extended family who lives in Belarus. They wrote to her a letter, begging her to move with them, as they did not want her to live there all alone.
Now, we are considering how we can help, and addressed some volunteers with a request to visit the woman and talk to her. If she is ready to go, then we will step in and help her to get to her relatives. That would be the best for her, as living conditions in her village are dire: no electricity, water or gas supply.
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.
