Dear friends,

Spring greetings from Ukraine…

As Ukrainians finish celebrating Easter, planting potatoes in their gardens, and enjoying the early apple and cherry blossoms, there remains a cloud of deep concern over the nation.

Questions persist:

How many more will lose their lives in this senseless conflict?

Officially in 2014:

  • 6,000 have been killed
  • 15,000 have been wounded
  • 800,000 have been forced to leave their homes

How much worse can the economy become?

  • Many Ukrainians lost 2/3 of their currency’s buying power in a one-year period
  • Up to 13% of the national budget is being used to defend the country
  • Home gas prices have tripled

When will Ukraine be truly free?

  • Ukraine has been besieged, occupied and oppressed by at least eight other nations in the last 1300 years. Tens of millions have died.
  • Ukrainian people want freedom to develop their own nation, culture and well-being.

Please pray for the following:

  • That the conflict will immediately cease in Ukraine
  • That millions of Ukrainians will humble themselves and call out to God for salvation
  • That Ukraine will become a truly sovereign, prosperous, and God-fearing nation in this generation

Thank you for standing with Ukraine in this very difficult hour. Your prayers, gifts and love have touched thousands.

“In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me.” (Ps. 86:7)

 In Jesus,
Paul & Team
Arise! Ukraine
