7/23/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lxxx (Day 150): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a nice morning with a weekend ahead but at night we were woken up twice by alarm sounds. In the morning we found out that two rockets were flying in our direction but were destroyed in the air by our air defense.

We hope and pray for the peaceful weekends because we have many plans.

Today Txxx and I will have a group meeting and we hope to have good communication and effective group support. We also pray for the new refugees who came to our breakfast on Tuesday to come to the group meeting today.

Yesterday we were looking for fans for our local defense groups. It’s very hard for the volunteers to work in the hot rooms. The fans in the stores became very expensive, it’s good that some people from our church shared the fans they had at homes. Now it’s more comfortable to work there.

Our elder Vxxxx is back home from hospital now. He had had two chemos that slowed down his cancer progress a little. He was supposed to have the third chemo last week but the doctor cancelled it because Vitaliy is too weak. His wife says that it’s hard for him to hold a glass of water in his hand. Vxxxx has been the administrator of our church building since it was built. He was in charge of construction works when the church was being built. Many-many things of the building he made with his hands. He loves cleanliness and order and sometimes we thought he was too strict to us for being careless about the things he cherished. This week Vxxxx passed his duties to another man who will be an administrator now. I can only imagine how hard for him to leave the job that he loves and did with such a passion. Vxxxx is a former military man who took part in the war in Afganistan in the 80s, he doesn’t like to show his feelings. In the evening during our Zoom church prayer he is sociable and even jokes. Please, pray for his health and for his heart.

Sxxxx had a Zoom meeting with pastors from other churches and one of the topic that they were discussing was how to help people from the church in Kherson who stay in the occupied city now. It’s very difficult to live in the occupation. There are big problems with food, medicines and first need things. Please, pray for the people there. Please, pray for the opportunity to send them help and pray for the liberation of our territories.

Sxxxx and I wish you to have a good weekend!

In Christ,
Lxxx

P.S. This is the photo of the counselors of our counseling center Rodnik ( The Springs) the photo was taken one day before the war. Please, pray for our work now.

  1. Our Father in heaven,
    Deliver us from evil.
    Lead us not ino temptation.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    Thy will be done.
    Hallowed be Thy name.
    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as in heaven.
    Thine is the kingdom, power and glory.

  3. Ps 138-146 are David’s heartfelt cries for help, and songs of hope. Ps 138:7 “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me. You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies and Your right hand shall save me. The LORD shall perfect that which concerns me. Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of Your hands!”

  4. Dear Lxxx,

    Good news that you got more fans for the local defense groups.

    Continued prayer for Tuesday refugee support group.

    Praying for Vxxxx. Glad he got the chemo he needed. Surely it is hard for him to give his duties to someone else. Thankful the Lord provided someone for Vxxxx to give his duties to.
    Praying for Vxxxx.

    Praying for those in Kherson and for ways to get them food and help.

    That is a nice picture of the counselors.

    Love in Christ,
    Anne
