From Lxxx (Day 37): Dear brothers and sisters, Today is the first day of April , but for us in Ukraine it’s still February 24.
Yesterday it was a usual day for us with several air alarms and the information of what is happening in the hot places. Everything we watch and read now is the news.
Yesterday I had a call from the pastor’s wife in the church in Lviv. She told me about their work with refugees and hospitals. So many people came to western Ukraine from the east and north.
I had a little talk with the family of refugees that stay in our church. They are very open and ready to talk and share. Sxxxx, the mother and the grandmother talks more and cries when she describs the events of past weeks.
I see the need to talk of the women who work with me in the local defense center. The husbands of many of them are serving in the army. One lady, Tatyana is an orthodox Christian and is a rare case of a person who regularly attends the church and wants to serve the Lord. We had a good talk with her.
Our church is very united and disciplined now. We meet every evening in Zoom prayer and our church members do a lot of individual fasting. We decided to join together in a fast as a church again to pray for our country.
We have good news of liberated cities but the citizens of these cities can’t return to their homes because the buildings are ruined and burnt and there is so much destruction. The people who survived the occupation tell horrible stories of what Russian soldiers did. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy” John 10:10.
Please, pray for us to overcome the evil with God.
