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.
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.
