A Conversation with a Ukrainian Pastor in My City

Yesterday I had a poignant conversation with a man named Oleg. He is the Youth Pastor for a Ukrainian church in my city. I met with him to find out how my church might be able to support their efforts. When he told me what his church is doing in Poland and Ukraine at this time, it was truly inspirational.

They currently have three teams in Poland. They are providing food, shelter and copies of the Gospel of John in Ukrainian. One team had gone into Ukraine to give food to refugees and help them on their journey to Poland. One of the team members was killed while doing so leaving behind a widow and six children.

The other teams are working with a temporary shelter that has 300 cots. They feed the refugees, gives them supplies, and help them to travel to the next place on their journey.

As I looked at the pictures, I saw a former student of mine. I also saw pictures of two of the children of a former student who are young adults now.

They are sharing the love of Jesus not only in word but in deed and risking their lives to do so. Please pray for these three teams and all of those who are showing and sharing the love of Jesus with the Ukrainian refugees.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. I am praying for the three church teams, the Ukrainian refugees, and the family of the team member killed. I am praying for the end of fighting praying; for peace. 🙏🙏🌺

  2. I am so glad that help is reaching the refugees. I was worried that the bombing would prevent the aid from reaching them. We will continue to pray and thank you for sharing with us.

  3. I’m writing that down in my pray journal now and sending up some prayers. Courageous and spirit filled people. ❤❤❤❤
