From Lxxx (Day 31): Dear brothers and sisters, We thank you for your prayers and for your support. Yesterday Sxxxx was invited to the draft office in our town. They form a group of doctors that can work in hospitals. Sxxxx was told to be ready to go any minute when he is called.
We have established good relations with a family of refugees in our church. They want to help. Yesterday Sxxx joined our ladies in the church who cook for the soldiers and Axxxx offered transportation by his car and traveled to Odessa with our ladies to bring some stuff we need. Now we know more about their needs and can help them.
Yesterday it was a quiet day without air alarms but in the evening it happened and we could hear a loud noise of explosion, later we found out that the rockets were destroyed in the air by our air defense. It was so close, almost above our heads.
Our son asks to pray for his colleague, whose name is Rxxxx. He stayed in Mariupol with his family ( his wife and 1-year-old son). They tried to get out of the city walking many kilometers through shelling and bombardment. He saw people who were walking next to him fall and never get up. At some point they were stopped by the detachment of Russians and forced to get on a bus. They were taken to the occupied territory, he was able to write a message from there telling that there is a plan to take them to Russia. Please, pray for the people who are taken to Russian against there will.
I talked to Victor, the director of our Christian medical clinic. In addition to the guest rooms in our church we plan to settle refugees in the building of our clinic and we discussed the things we can improve there to make the stay of people more comfortable. Today we all plan to work to bring the victory close.
“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.” Habakkuk 3:17-19 In Christ, Lxxxx
