A message from the base leader of YWAM Kyiv : “DON’T FORGET ABOUT US!”
Our greatest fear right now is that the world will forget about Ukraine!
First hours, first days, first week everyone was talking about this shocking war. People would go to bed, wake up in the morning with news about Ukraine. Are we still standing!!! Is Kyiv still standing!!
This WAR is STILL SHOCKING! It is still wrong on every level and from every side. People die, get hurt, run, are still in shelters, are still fear for their lives. I understand that life goes on, life is full of events and burdens for many.
But we need the world! We need the Church! We need all prayers! Because we STILL NEED A MIRACLE !
I am grateful for all the churches that lifted us in prayers yesterday, I am grateful for all the Christians that continue to stand for us and with us. Thank you for gathering and praying for us! Thank you for fasting for us! Thank you for sending your help to Ukraine!! We see everyone and everything!!
Yesterday our team rescued 45 people from a very hot place. Yesterday our team delivered 48 food boxes. Yesterday our team delivered 400 meals. Yesterday our team went to Church that had their service in the underground shelter. Yesterday one of our team mates had to have a surgery, everything went well. Today they are taking meds to the hospitals, taking food to the needy and getting ready for a lock down.
There is a lot of action happening around Kyiv! Everyone is preparing for another wave of attack: the increase of troops from the Belarus side, and around Kyiv specifically. Please Pray!! Stand with us! Don’t leave us! It’s a cry of our hearts!
There is a shift taking place in the war in Ukraine. Russian forces have moved out of Kyiv and it’s environments and have shifted their forces to the Eastern front. Many Ukrainians are moving back from the borderlands attempting to restore their homes in the western parts. Farmers are scurrying to seed their fields while they still can. All of this in the midst of greater buildup of forces coming against them but with hope of victory.
In the midst of this there has been a huge propaganda offensive unleashed on the world shifting the blame on Ukraine the U.S. and NATO. Please pray that this will not once again divide the U.S. and the world. The conspiracy theorists thread mills are once again cranking out their lies. Please Pray!
The situation in Mariupol
“At present, the environment in the city is calm, allowing us to start visiting order, returning the population and adjusting peaceful life.”⠀
Sergey Shoigu, Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.
At least 20,000 dead, 1000 trapped in a steel factory, another 100,000 in basements hiding without food and water and most of the city in ruins.
