2/9/2023 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky

From Lyuda Betina (Day 351): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a frosty day and it’s rather cold. All our prayers are about our soldiers who have to fight overcoming cold. We heard that they feel fine in the frost when they move and do something. The hardest thing in the frost is the situation when they have to stay without moving for a long time in some place.

The situation with electricity in our region is getting better. All key substations supplying Odessa and the region received large-scale and complex damage from enemy attacks. They deliberately choose energy objects as the target. Last week was hard in Odessa. It was especially hard for multi-storey buildings which are completely dependent on electricity – heating, cookers, elevators, water.

I talked to my friends and relatives who live in Odesa. They were not in despair, they were doing everything they could to survive. We could not connect with Sergey’s sister, Tanya, who lives in Odessa. With the absence of electricity there was no internet and mobile connection.

She went to the nearest café with a generator and was able to send us messages from there. Most of the people made the supply of water at home now and there were places where people could get drinking water in case if they didn’t make a supply. In the cafes there were many parents with children who were doing their school home task.

The life is going on in spite of the war and all troubles. Yesterday in the store I met my old school friend. She said that her daughter had just had a baby. I hope the mother and the baby will do well, stay warm and have all that they need.

Some people come back from Europe. My good friend, a sports teacher, came back from Europe where she had stayed for several months. She says she missed her job so much, though she could attend some sport clubs there. When she came to the gym where she used to work before she was so glad to see some young sportsmen who are ready to continue their trainings.

My mother got sick with a cold. I am making her hot tea with lemon and insist on her staying in bed.

I wish you to be well and healthy.

In Christ,

    Praying for our brothers and sisters in Odessa for their power to be restored and for strength and creativity as they wait for their substations to be restored.
