From Pastor Ixxx: Dear Friends, Thank you again for your prayers and encouraging words. We continue praying unceasingly for the Lord to lead Russia and Ukraine to a political resolution of this conflict that took such a vicious and bloody form. May our almighty God return the Russian troops back to their home country and heal the wounds caused by this war. You can’t even imagine how much hatred and hostility there is between our neighbouring countries now. There is so much anguish and grief! I have never seen it in all my life before.
May the Lord soothe and cure the pain of those who lost their loved ones. May the Holy Spirit comfort their hearts!
We also thank the Lord for the courage and valor of our Ukrainian people and for the spiritual revival that we see these days of trial on our land. There is no doubt the sovereign Lord is at work in the hearts of our people.
Meanwhile, we are still in Kyiv and are quite busy delivering food and medicine to the elderly people in our district. I prepare a small devotion in the morning and lead a prayer meeting in the evening for the Xxxx Xxxxx church every day online, even though the congregation is scattered across the country and overseas now. Also I stream a sermon to them on Sunday morning.
Our younger son Vxxx (18) signed up as a nurse at the intensive care hospital nearby as they prepare to take in the wounded. Mxxx (the older son) and Kxxx (the daughter in law) in the Western Ukraine helping the refugees.
The Lord is gracious to us and He keeps us safe.
So far, He graciously spared Kyiv from the massive destruction, even though the Russian troops have almost encircled our beautiful ancient capital city of Kyiv for almost a week now.
Grace and Peace!
Yours in Christ,
