From Lxxx (Day 190): Dear brothers and sisters, We thank God for the new day and ask Him to bless it.
Yesterday our refugee group met in the church for a Bible study class, our elder Vxxxx was leading it. The topic was “Bible – the Word of God”. We read Scripture and had some discussions.
It’s interesting that our discussions finally came to the family issues, this is what is always important, no matter whether it’s peace or war. It’s good that many questions arise and we hope that everybody in the group will find the answers to their questions.
Pxxx, a lady from our group, came to our town with her daughter and granddaughter from Kherson three months ago. They all were in a state of shock after their escaping from their town under the constant shelling. Her granddaughter was crying without stop, her daughter remained silent and didn’t want to talk. Pxxx came to the group feeling despair, she didn’t know what to do and how to help her girls. It’s amazing that she was the first in the group to accept a new reality and move forward in her life. At every meeting we saw more and more progress in her. She responded very well to group therapy and to individual counseling, she was willing to deal with her past and find her new self. We are glad to see that she became a good support for her family and for other people in the group. Yesterday I watched her during the Bible study. She was very excited to discover the truths of the Word of God.
We pray hard for our youth leader Pxxxx who is on the front line now. We don’t hear from him often and now when there is so much activity there where he is, we especially worry for him. We all were so glad to receive a message from him yesterday, it was a birthday greeting for the girl from our youth group. It’s so nice that he stays connected to the youth group even now when he is so busy fighting.
Please, pray for our elder, Vxxxx, who is struggling with a lung cancer. His state became worse, it’s hard for him to breathe and it’s hard to talk, he can only whisper. Yesterday he couldn’t join our Zoom prayer meeting. Please, pray also for his wife, Vxxx.
We thank you for your prayers and for your help.

Our prayer is one of thanksgiving for this ministry. May our Lord strengthen your church and grant peace to all. May the ill be comforted and, in God’s will, may their health be improved. In Christ name, we make these requests.
Heavenly Father, You know Your people and the plans You have for them. Have mercy on Elder Vxxxx and his wife Vxxx.
