As YWAM Kyiv, daily we are doing our best to keep you updated on what
our team is doing on the ground in Kyiv. Many are praying and giving to
support this work, and we want to be accountable and also encourage our
prayer warriors with specific needs.
However, what you may not know is that we also have YWAM Kyiv staff
who have travelled to different parts of Ukraine to be safe (as well as others
who have travelled outside the country).
We have a group of staff who are in Ternopil, Ukraine. They are helping
with transferring refugees out of Ukraine, and also getting supplies from
outside of the country into Ukraine and to our team in Kyiv. We also have a
family in Khmelnytski working hard to help refugees.
So as you pray for YWAM Kyiv and our team. Please also pray for the staff
who are away from their homes in Kyiv. They are missing their homes, they
don’t have much of their things, and they are doing everything they can to
help. Please pray for their safety and their energy as well. It is hard to live
in a country that is being attacked night after night by an aggressor, never
sure if the night will be safe, and then to serve others all day long. Your
prayers mean so much! You have been holding up their hands by your
prayers, and they still have the joy of serving the Lord and others. Thank
I used to love to be in church:
Smile, clap and dance.
But the last 25 days I have forgotten how to do it.
I just lost that ability.
I hope when the war is over
I will smile again, clap and dance.
I pray for my Ukraine .
And for every Ukrainian.
Lots of questions to heaven.
But at the same time, I fully trust in Him!!!
