Supporting and Praying For Ukraine
All Month Long
Praise God for the faithful and generous hearts of Mount Pisgah UMC and Peachtree Road UMC. $83,000 has been provided directly to Pastors serving people in need in Ukraine and Romania. This letter above highlights how gifts are being used and the connection and coordination between the Methodist Church in Romania and Ukraine. The need continues for our prayers and support.
The number of people displaced inside of Ukraine is over 11 million and over 5 million have left Ukraine seeking safety and refuge in surrounding countries. The need continues each day. Those serving and assisting the refugees need our prayers for strength as they help others with food, medicine, supplies, shelter, and their spiritual needs. The financial needs grow as financial savings are depleted and it is nearly impossible to find work.
Financial assistance is being distributed to many locations in Ukraine: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Koson, Khust, Uzhhorod, Chernivtsi, and Poltava. Also, teams in Romania and Hungary are sending supplies into Ukraine and transporting people from Ukraine back into their countries and securing shelters in Debrecen and Cluj-Napoca.
Support has been given to nine pastors who are providing refugee assistance in Kyiv, Poltava, Uzhherod, Khust, Chernivtsi, Lviv, Kharkiv, and Koson. We also have connections with churches in Romania and Hungary that are transporting supplies into Ukraine.
Praise God for generous hearts giving to those who are in need! Our prayers continue for the Ukrainian people and their safety, for an end to this war, and for those who are being the hands of feet of Jesus in the midst of this humanitarian crisis.
