11/17/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky: Facing darkness

From Lyuda (Day 257): Dear brothers and sisters, Our morning began with air alarm and we received the information of another massive attack on our territory. We don’t have electricity, so my message will be short today.
Yesterday was a quiet day, but in many parts of our town there was no electricity and no water. People with electric heating feel depressed, I had calls from some of our refugees, who almost panicked thinking about winter coming. I told them that the generator works in our church building and they can come to charge their phones there and have a cup of tea.
The dark time of the day is very hard for some people and especially hard for children. We hear from some parents, they ask for advice how to calm children down when there is no electricity and no light. The answer is talk to your children, play with them and tell them fairy tales about heroes who overcome problems. This advice is good for any time and any situation with children but it can definitely help when it’s dark.
We hope people will use the time without electricity to pray more, talk to each other and make plans for future.
Please, pray for us to be strong and be able to overcome all the difficulties we have now.
In Christ,

P.S. There are autumn views of our town and the photo of a romantic evening with a candle.

  1. Asking the Lord to grant the parents strength to equal these difficult, dark days. Asking Him to draw the little ones close with His love. And thank you for the pictures of autumn beauty given to us by our Creator.


  2. Praying for God’s provision. We are so thankful for the strength and wisdom God has given you for the people He is bringing across your path.


  3. Dear Lyuda,
    Praying for Jesus light to shine brightly, May the gospel be a source of comfort and strength during these hard times!
    Praising the Lord that the church has a generator, where people can come and be encouraged.
    The pictures of the leaves are so beautiful!
    May God continue to daily send you love notes, like the colorful leaves,
    Love in Christ,


  4. Praying for Ukraine daily, esp. with winter approaching. The Russians may destroy electricity but they can’t destroy the sun! Have mercy on the Ukraine people, oh Lord and may those who weep in the evening sing in the spring, Your new creation of life!
