From Lxxx (Day 111): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a wonderful morning. I often had my morning devotionals on the beach in summer watching the sun rise over the sea. Today I had it on the balcony with a view of mountains. “ Marvellous are Thy works”. I feel constant joy of being with my grandchildren. Yesterday our bedtime Bible story was about Noah building an altar after leaving the arch. We had a good discussion why Noah had to kill and burn animals and we don’t need to do it.
My feeling of joy competes with my feeling of guilt being away from my country in such an important moment. I communicate with Sxxxx during the day through messages and in the evening we talk.
He had a busy day as always. In the morning he taught a Bible study lesson for the group that meets in the church on Mondays. Then our church members who are responsible for distributing help were making food bags and met people who visited our church. Sxxxx is encouraged by the girls from our youth group who come to the church almost every day to see if they can be of help. There is also preparation for the big cooking day on Tuesday. Tuesday and Friday are the days when our church cooks pies for the soldiers.
Yesterday I talked to our counselor Vxxx. She told me about the kitchen ministry. They decided to go out to the street where they put a tent. Because people are reluctant to go inside they decided to treat people with sandwiches and pastries right in the street, talk and try to build the atmosphere for sharing Good News.
It’s hard to read political news where the leaders of some countries in Europe try to balance between Ukraine and Russia and are very creative finding diplomatic words not to call evil by its name.
Please, pray for eyes of people everywhere would be open to see what is good and what is evil.
