8th day of war – updated

Just in! A truckload of blankets is delivered to help keep the 360 displaced persons warm in their beds at our partner refuge in Vinnytsia. Thank you for joining us in supporting them.

Here are some images from life in Ukraine, how our partners are helping, what’s happening in Budapest, and a surprise I saw yesterday.

Neighbors of Trinity church are pitching in to secure the basement windows. This church houses the seminary I teach in, the beds from the dorms have been moved into the basement to provide shelter from those far away and near.
Some more good news in the midst of the struggle: In a bomb shelter in a city in southern Ukraine a couple gets married! May God bless them!
Today our partners were able to procure medical supplies and send them to Irpin and Bucha.

“Я ж буду оспівувати Твою силу, вранці радітиму Твоїм милосердям, бо Ти став моїм захисником і притулком у день моєї недолі. Ти — моя допомога, Тебе оспівуватиму, адже Ти, Боже, є моїм захисником. Боже мій, Ти — моє милосердя! Псалмів 58:17-18 УТТ

“But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress, the God who shows me steadfast love.” Psalm‬ ‭59:16-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

And here in Charlottesville…

I was encouraged to see this Ukrainian flag on this neighbor’s porch.

Please pray!

Please stay informed!

Please give!

Thank you to all who have donated so far!
