4/28/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lxxx (Day 64): Dear brothers and sisters, Thank you for your prayers. For a long time, the territory of Ukraine from the Dniester to the Danube was an oasis of peaceful life. Despite the bombing of the coastal zone and attempts to land troops from the sea, our life was relatively calm and comfortable compared to the events in other parts of Ukraine. Yesterday the enemy made the second blow at the bridge across the Dniester Estuary and destroyed it. Now we are cut off from the main part of the country and this is a big problem for the logistics of all areas of activity. Our town is so much connected with Odessa that it’s hard to imagine the life in separation.

Two families of our church live on the coast on the other side of the bridge. It usually took them about 30 minutes to come to the church. Now they will have to make a big circle and drive two hours and a half or even longer because of the traffic jam caused by all the vehicles who will go that way.

The enemy continues to attack Nikolayev trying to move in the direction of Odessa but repulsed. Russian ships approached Odessa and can be seen from the shore.

Yesterday at the local defense center I talked to the woman whose husband is in the army. She lives in a house and has a garden where they used to work together growing vegetables and fruits. Now she does all the work alone. It brought thoughts of all wives mothers and children whose husbands, sons, fathers are fighting now and they think of them day and night, read and watch the news all the time, call them and feel panic each time when their phones don’t answer. Please, pray for them.

It’s nice to see the desire of the refugees who stay in our church and clinic to help. They take parts in the activities we do in the church and help in the local defense center.

Please, pray for our area to restore the connection with a mainland. Please, pray for us to find the ways to serve people around in order to bring them a good news.

In Christ,
Lxxx

  2. Dear Lxxxx, Praying for you all , since you’ve been disconnected from the main road to Odessa! May God use this to protect your town all the more from the enemy and make the church and the clinic a safe place for people to hear the gospel, heal and rest! Also, my prayer is that the town will still have ways to get the needed supplies of food and medicine,etc.
    May God comfort the wives, mothers and children as they are separated from their loved ones fighting the war!
    We can rest in remembering Jesus has already won!
    Love,
    Jill
