Aside from the grocery bags, people can hear testimonies of God’s love. And it is inspiring

From Yulia
I am so amazed by how beautiful God is.
How He loves community and working together.
Being on the other side of the border I see even more examples of unity and people coming alongside to help Ukraine and Ukrainians.
On this picture there is a little boy getting a toy during one of our food distribution trips. But for this to happen so many people have come together and put their hearts, minds, time, finances in, so that this boy could get a little gift with a big meaning, to bring him joy and proof that he is seen by God.
Last week our team delivered 910 food bags in Kyiv and Kyiv, Chernigov, Sumskiy regions.

We keep working and responding to the needs in areas nearby but also we were able to reach out to places that are right now under fire and occupation. They are going through the same thing Kyiv region went through a little less than a month ago. Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Zaporizhya region. We were blessed with great connections and were able to set up small humanitarian aid centers there. Each week part of our team goes to this location and joins the teams we partner with on ground to bring aid close to the front line.

This week we sent 38 tons (3 trucks) of food to these small YWAM hubs.
This all is possible because of generosity of so many people around the word.
Any amount of help is not too small if we do it in obedience to God.

Prayer points for Ukraine
The Russian military have fired on a school in Severodonetsk, in eastern Ukraine’s Luhansk region, where more than 200 people were hiding – many of them children.
Please pray for the safety and rescue of these Ukrainians hiding in the school.
Cars full of people trying to evacuate were stuck at a Russian checkpoint in the city of Vasylivka.

“In Vasylivka, the occupiers have not allowed more than 1,000 cars to enter the territory controlled by Ukraine for the fourth day in a row,” there are women and children in the cars, and that most of them no longer have money for food and water.

Please pray that they can get a breakthrough to safety and the women and children will receive food and water.
Y Ukraine continues to help those in need a midst difficult and dangerous conditions
