As we woke this morning (Thursday 24th Feb), alerts came in that Russia had started its invasion of Ukraine. We have been devastated to hear this news.
I have spoken to our team this morning and Lebedyn has not yet come under attack which is good news. However, there is clearly fear of what might happen in the coming days and weeks as everything is so uncertain at this time. Sumy, the nearest major city, has received some shelling but at this point the extent of the damage is unknown.
The most powerful weapon we have in our armoury is prayer. Therefore, we ask each one of you to stand in unity to pray for this situation.
Please pray for:
The consequence of war is that it affects the people in so many ways. Inflation, food shortages and break down in communications and systems are just a few of the devastating effects. There will also be the mental anguish and grief for loved ones who will end up being casualties.
We remain committed to supporting and helping them in as many practical ways possible. If you think you could help us by donating to us, we would be so grateful. Please go to our page to support the ministry work here.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
