5/2/2022 – Making the Decision to Return to Ukraine

From Jamie Peipon: minister of music volunteering with the MTW Crisis Response Team.

On the way to Ukraine: I drove a lady who had been in Poland for a while. She’s from Kharkiv. All of the luggage area of the van was filled with food to be taken there. Her return is just another one of the impossible decisions people are having to make. She has four kids and her husband in Krakow, but her brother and father are in Kharkiv and she feels like she needs to support them as well. Kharkiv has been hit so hard, and fighting continues, but she is planning to return to this dangerous area. Thankfully, news is breaking this evening that Ukraine is getting close to pushing Russian forces back across the border north of Kharkiv and that the fighting there might be waning.

  1. Jamie, thank you for all that you are doing, in this tragic situation. Isaiah 41:10 begins with, “Fear not” and ends with, “I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” What comes between those phrases is our God’s promise to help, uphold and strengthen us. May our Lord grant you strength, clarity and His peace. Cy Rosenblatt, 1st. Pres, Jackson.


  2. It is so hard when your family is in different places, but you know there is no food or supplies and your dad and brother need you too. God Bless you for your bravery and concern. Prayers go with you, may God go ahead of you.

    The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
    the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

    Psalm 121:7-8 NIV
