12/16/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lyuda (Day 296): Dear brothers and sisters, We woke up with air alarm today. Because there is no electricity the sirens don’t work, so we learn about alarms from the messages we receive. It looks like there is another massive attack for the whole territory of Ukraine. We don’t know the details yet we will get the information later.

Yesterday was a good day. We came to the church in the morning and we saw the girls from our youth group there. They say it’s boring at home when there is no electricity, so they come to the church. There is always something to do there and it’s fun to be together. It’s amazing that these young people are always in a good mood, they joke, they laugh and we start laughing with them.

We had a Bible study with our refugee group. We decided not to use generator to save petrol for the youth group meeting that was supposed to be later. Our youth meetings last about three hours and they like to cook something together. So, we used candles for our Bible study and met in the basement where the rooms are always warmer than upstairs.

Two new ladies came to the Bible study, they had many questions. They wondered why they did not know before that there is a group where you can find answers to many life questions.

Then I went to the local defense center where the group of volunteers are making camouflage covering nets and special costumes for scouts and snipers. In the summer we made green nets, in autumn yellow and brown, and now white to make the equipment of our army not visible in snow.

When I came home I was glad to have electricity and decided to cook some food in the oven. It was my mistake, because of a low voltage it took me forever. It’s good that the food was ready before the electricity disappeared again.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
In Christ,
Lyuda

P.S. There are photos of our Bible study with candles and of volunteers in the local defense center.

  1. Our Father in heaven,
    Deliver us from evil.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    Thy kingdom come
    Thy will be done
