Please pray for our Christian brothers and sisters whose lives are at great risk in a neighboring country during wartime in Ukraine. They are purchasing aid in their country and transferring it to SGA-supported pastors in Ukraine. In his recent ministry report, Pastor Piotr shares the dangers they are facing while serving the Lord by helping others . . .
“Tomorrow, we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation. On this day, the Angel Gabriel announced the coming of the Savior into the world. This is good news, but unfortunately not everyone accepted this news, and therefore there is a lot of suffering today, especially in Ukraine.
Our union, and more specifically Leonid, oversees assistance for refugees who have already begun to seek shelter in [our country]. But our churches collect products that can be exported from [our country], as there is a ban on some products. They load them into cars and take them to the Ukrainian border, and so they pass them on to the brothers from the [Ukrainian] region. It is impossible to visit Ukraine due to hostilities.
Christians in [our country] are raising funds to help refugees who found themselves in difficult conditions in [a different country]. A group of drivers in Ukraine was detained with cargo. These are truckers. One of the drivers is the brother of Leonid They haven’t been released for almost a month now. We don’t know the reasons. But Leonid tries to help his brother and other people at the same time. Brother Leonid has a good opportunity to testify about Christ, confirming the faith by deeds.
We constantly pray that this war will end soon. We continue the ministry with our missionary pastors.”
