3/9/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lxxx (Day14): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a frosty snowy morning. We thank God for this weather and hope it will make our enemy feel miserable.

We are doing well. We were blessed with another peaceful night while many people in the north had to spend this cold night in the open air because their houses were destroyed by bombs. Many people in Sumy, Zhitomer, Kharkiv and Kiev were hiding from shooting and bombing at night. Many of them couldn’t survive. Russians exterminate civil people in Ukraine.

There are so many people who became homeless. We are ready to receive people and arrange their stay in our church building. Right now it’s impossible for people to travel and reach our place. But we hope that when it will be possible we’ll be able to help. So, now we will be preparing getting the supply of blankets, pillows, clothes, etc. And meanwhile we will do different things to support our army.

Yesterday I talked to some women in our local defense center. Many of them have relatives in the areas of severe war activities. The hardest thing is losing contacts, when people can’t call and it’s unknown if they are alive or not.

Now when we are getting used to the state of shock we start making some plans. Today Sxxx will contact our churches in different cities and find out the information about them.

We are going to have a Zoom meeting with the counselors of our counseling center and plan some specific steps of our work.

Please, pray for us to be wise and do what the Lord wants us to do in the situation.

Please, pray for the people who stay in the cities which are being bombed, for the opportunity for them to get to safe places.

Please, pray for our soldiers  and ask God to give them strength and protect them.

And let’s pray for God to be glorified in every situation we have.

In Christ,

Sxxx and Lxxxx

  2. I thank God for your message today and pray the Holy Spirit will guide you as you prepare and strengthen your faith. May God protect and give strength to the soldiers and civilians. May His name be glorified through his servants in Ukraine as He “preserves the souls of his godly ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked” Ps. 97:10

  3. 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.”

  4. Thanking God for the technology that allows us, your brothers and sisters to hear first-hand accounts so we may share your burdens and lift you up in fervent prayer.

    “We are God’s people, the chosen of the Lord,
    Born of His Spirit, established by His Word;
    Our cornerstone is Christ alone,
    And strong in Him we stand:
    O let us live transparently
    And walk heart to heart and hand in hand.

    We are God’s loved ones, the Bride of Christ our Lord,
    For we have known it, the love of God outpoured;
    Now let us learn how to return
    The gift of love once given:
    O let us share each joy and care,
    And live with a zeal that pleases Heaven.

    We are the Body of which the Lord is Head,
    Called to obey Him, now risen from the dead;
    He wills us be a family,
    Diverse yet truly one:
    O let us give our gifts to God,
    And so shall his work on earth be done.

    We are a temple, the Spirit’s dwelling place,
    Formed in great weakness, a cup to hold God’s grace;
    We die alone, for on its own
    Each ember loses fire:
    Yet joined in one the flame burns on
    To give warmth and light, and to inspire.” (Jeffrey Bryan Leach, “We Are God’s People”)
