9/28/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lyuda (Day 217): Dear brothers and sisters, This morning I want to thank God for the peaceful night and for a good day yesterday. There were several attacks on our southern region but our air defense destroyed four drones and one attack aircraft Su-25 before they could damage us. Praise the Lord!

I also thank God for my husband, it’s his birthday today and he is 57. I plan some fun for him today and hope we will have a peaceful day. Yesterday Sergey’s sister asked him what he wants for his birthday and he said: “Peace, peace and peace” I pray for God giving peace for his heart and a gift of peace in our country for all of us.

Yesterday we had a good fellowship of people at the charitable breakfast. It’s always an opportunity to talk and to share. They share different things. I talk to a mother, whose son has a serious health problem and needs a surgery, then I listen to a woman, whose husband is in the army and she thinks of him all the time. An elderly couple who lost contact with their children, a woman who lost her documents and many, many other things that can happen with people. There are some things that we can help with, but there are cases when Tanya and I can only listen and it helps, too.

Yesterday when I came to the local defense center where ladies work I became a witness of an interesting discussion. The women discussed advantages and disadvantages of socialism. It’s not the first time we have such a discussion. People like to compare present and past. Some of us who are older, experienced it and some who were born when Ukraine became independent only heard about it. Though there were some good things like free medicine, free education (we can call it good if we don’t think about the quality of everything that we received free), our younger generation doesn’t like the idea of a limited choice in everything and the idea of total control. It’s encouraging and I hope we will not go back to those things.

I wish you a good day.

In Christ,

P.S. There are photos of our charitable breakfasts.

  1. Congratulations to Sergei on his special day today! We continue to pray for peace and that Sergei will receive this gift. We are thankful for the peace of heart and mind you both are bringing to so many God is bringing across your path.


  2. Dear Lyuda,
    Happy birthday to Sergei! I pray it is a peaceful day for him and for you all as you celebrate!
    Praying with Sergei for peace in Ukraine!
    Love in Christ,


  3. Happy Birthday to your husband. Hope you found something fun to do, something simple, to bring joy, and peace in his heart. Im sure going through a war, pits a different perspective on things, as to what is really important, and what is trival. Do pray the joy of the Lord is your strength.

    Thankful for a peaceful night and day. I can imagine these are great gifts.
