While it is hopeful to hear the recent news that the United States will supply heavy tanks to Ukraine, we don’t know how or when the war will end. Until that time, we will continue to equip the churches in our network to reach their communities with heat and hope.
Through SGA’s Ukraine Heat and Hope Campaign, congregations we serve have been able to turn their buildings into centers of heat and hope, so they can care for the people who need emergency supplies, shelter, and warmth. In the last few months of winter in Ukraine, generous friends like you have helped provide more than 250 generators to churches, over 200 cast iron stoves, and approximately 500 blankets. Meeting emergency physical needs has opened the door to Gospel conversations, and SGA-supported pastors have seen a tremendous response to the Lord.
“You can’t help every single home,” says Eric Mock, SGA’s vice president of ministry operations. “But you can help these churches of which there’s 2,300 churches. You can begin to equip them with resources that allow people to get warm, to charge their phones, to get a blanket, to get a hot meal, to get a cup of tea, to catch their breath, and also experience the love of God through the gracious acts of the believers in the church.”
We will continue to deliver 40 tons of aid each week to churches in Ukraine from Poland — and this combined with emergency supplies made available for Ukrainian refugees in surrounding countries has already provided 11.2 million meals.
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.
