Editor’s Note: The images and report below were provided by two SGA-supported churches in Ukraine.
God has made a way for SGA-supported Pastor Oleg and his church to help more Ukrainians in need. Through the generosity of friends like you, He provided a van so that Oleg and his team can continue sharing the Gospel and rushing food, hygiene supplies, and other emergency aid to local and remote locations in Ukraine!
Together, we praise God with you that the ministry we serve is through the faithful efforts of the churches that we have served — and will continue to serve. Here is Oleg’s recent message of gratefulness . . .
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Baptist Church in [a Ukrainian] region sincerely thanks the Lord for our joint work in the Lord’s field. We sincerely thank you for your sacrifice and assistance in purchasing a passenger van for evacuation and food delivery ministries to serve refugees and people living in war zones. We thank the Lord for brother Ruslan, sister Oksana, and all the employees of the Ukrainian office, who work hard so that the ministry in our churches will be provided and will not stop. All the glory be to the Lord Jesus Christ!
The purchase of this van provided an opportunity for greater ministry. In the last two months, we were able to deliver blankets and pillows to the local hospital, bring food to [another village] to distribute to displaced people living in our area. Also, we already had three trips from the war zone. Namely, we delivered products to churches in [four other regions].
We appreciate what you continue to do for our country. Your help proves to us that we are God’s big family.
We ask you to continue to pray for us, our ministry [here], as well as our trips to the east. We also ask you to pray for our needs in holding a children’s camp in the beginning of August. Another prayer need is that we will have enough resources to build a cellar and warehouse with a total area of 60 square meters. We feel the wisdom in the fact that we need to be ready for autumn and a difficult winter. After all, the war does not end, there are more impoverished and needy families and people. And the church must be ready to continue serving, preaching the Gospel through good works.
In joint ministry,
Brothers – ministers Oleg and Oleksandr
