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.
