With the Russian military attacking various locations across Ukraine, many people are fleeing built up areas seeking safety. The churches that we support are receiving hundreds of these displaced people and they need basics to house them. Please donate now to provide food, bedding, medicines and other essentials to those who have been forced from their homes in fear. Please continue to pray for Ukraine.
I spent the whole day in the hospital today. I was concerned with a woman, Tatyana, who came from Boryspil (near Kyiv) with her sick (disabled) mother, Nadia, and asked for help. They had no housing and asked for help. No one could accept them because her mother needed medical attention. I took them to the hospital and bought them food and medicine. They couldn’t believe that some-one would help them in this way for free. She thanked God for everything. Now they are in the hospital and are looking for an opportunity to go to Truskavets to a specialist hospital. I told them “God loves you and gave his life for you and will always help you”. They were happy and wept with happiness. They said this: "Look what a gift God gave us on March 8.”
26.02.22 my daughter Mira was born into the world. The night before we sat in the bomb shelter because of the air-raid siren.
When I was in the hospital I heard planes flying over us, doctors were getting ready to move us to a basement bomb shelter. We spent the next night in the basement because of the air alarm.. us and many more women with newborn babies.. born in a basement vault.. Now she's lying next to me, sleeping peacefully, and the alarm sirens are howling outside... this is not what I wanted to tell my daughter about her first birthdays.But even in such difficult situations, God is with us. For even here, I see much of His goodness in people who cared for us, brought food and everything we needed; in doctors who were constantly ready to help and do everything to make us feel more or less safe; in people who prayed for us and showed their concern for us in their 100+ messages; in our Army that continues to defend our lands.
I believe I will tell my daughter a great story of victory, of our faith, of the victory of peace, of God.And now when it's scary, when it's not clear what's next, I pray.
A week ago I was told that my father has died. He was at the rehabilitation centre where he repented and accepted Christ. He died because of a grenade explosion when the Russian army came to Makarov (town near Kyiv). I called him in the morning to tell about Mira's birth and in the afternoon the Russian attacked that area. And a huge relief that he is with God now. God keep all of us safe!
