|Dear Friends and Partners,
The following is copied and shared with permission and reflects a deeply personal perspective forged amid the daily suffering and sacrifice caused by the war in Ukraine. This update is offered to inform and encourage your prayerful support for all who are affected by this tragedy.
If you would like to help us with humanitarian aid efforts you can donate through our website https://ipministry.org/donate/. The needs are growing as we keep helping thousands of people to move west within Ukraine and also helping those who want to leave the country temporarily. We need funds most of all for gas, but also for food and various supplies (medical, bed linens, mattresses, etc). Thank you.
Uman church “Resurrection of Christ” continues to care for internally displaced.
We take care of internally displaced persons, refugees who have been forced to leave their homes and seek refuge away from war, so we try to cover the need not only for groceries, but also for clothes and shoes. So people were able to choose the things they needed most – clothes, shoes, bedding, towels… We will continue to cover the needs of the people.
This is what the church premises look like last month. Somehow God provided for us to rent a semi-basement room! A good place during the war! People always knew that the church would feed, receive, but that the church premises would become a good bomb shelter is a great bonus!
Kharkiv Church Update from Sergie Sviridok:
We continue to help the people of our city. Social workers and volunteers connect. In three days, a bus of humanitarian workers was delivered.
Please share these updates with others. I have added direct links to our email, our website, and to the IP Ministry Journal on YouTube to the bottom of this page. Your prayers are precious to us. Thank you!
