3/8/2022 – Kyiv

From Clay Quarterman, former MTW missionary: We don’t hear from all our friends regularly, so we rejoiced to get news of Pastor Ivan, although the news is 3 days old. He has decided to stay with his wife in their apartment in eastern Kyiv and help other people to evacuate. They use the basement in their apartment building as a shelter. He does sermons online for his flock. Their kids are already in safety in western Ukraine. Ivan says he will not take up arms, but he will go to stop convoys with his bare hands, if necessary. “This is our home. We will stay here.”

  1. Thank you for the news!

    Northwoods Presbyterian Church, USA is praying for peace in Ukraine and for safety and encouragement for our Christian brothers and sisters.

    “Who shall seperate us from the love of Christ? Hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, the sword– in all these we are more than conquerers through Him Who loved us. I, [Paul the apostle] am convinced that not life, death, powers, rulers, highs, depths, anything in all creation can seperate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


  2. Ps 121 “…my help comes from YHWH,Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved. He Who keeps you will not slumber.”


  3. James 5- Take, as an example of patience in suffering, the prophets who spoke in the LORD’s name. You have heard of the patience of Job and have seen the end of the LORD: that the LORD is very pitying and of tender mercy.


  4. Ps 138 …though the LORD be high, yet He has repect unto the lowly, but the proud He knows afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, the LORD will revive me. Thou shall stretch forth Thy hand against the wrath of my enemies and Thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerns me: Thy mercy, O LORD, endures forever. Forsake not the works of Thy own hands!


  5. It’s too long to type out, but for prayers of help and hope, read Psalm 138-146. It only takes about 10 minutes to read them out loud.
