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.
