Your prayers have been especially needed and visible over the last few days.

Around 4:00 on Saturday morning, a Russian military aircraft dropped eight bombs onto one of our farm/camp sites. Most of the fields and some machinery were destroyed. The shelling also damaged a few buildings on site.

But God is faithful. A few weeks ago, as conflict grew closer, our team decided to evacuate everyone from this specific site to a safer location in the west. Had the Spirit not prompted their evacuation, there would have been at least 50 people in harm’s way.

Even more, the night before the bombs fell, four men from the Lifesong team were driving to the city with relief supplies, planning to stay the night at this farm/camp site. But due to a nationwide curfew, they spent the night at a local pastor’s house—just 12 miles from camp. Had they spent the night at the farm/camp site, the shelling could have caused serious injuries or even casualties.

Bogdan showed us some of the damage in his latest update. Watch him share:


This weekend, we also had the opportunity to connect with Julie in Ukraine. She has been serving orphaned and vulnerable children with Lifesong for 10 years. But today, she serves as one of Chernigov’s main points of contact for evacuation, coordinating rides to get anyone and everyone to safety in the west. The testimonies she shares—both of those she’s evacuated and those to whom she delivers food—are profoundly impactful.

Watch Julie’s update:

When you look into the eyes of people to whom you brought this package of food or medicine, they treat you as a savior. This is the moment when you can explain to them, “It’s not me. It’s not about my heroism or my braveness. It’s because of the God who is still alive, who still cares for you. He’s here. He didn’t leave Ukraine.”Julie Lifesong Ukraine

GIVE TODAY

Please pray for Ukraine and specifically:

  • For safety. Fighting is escalating all around Chernigov and our ministry sites in that region. The entire city is without power. And while most of our team is evacuated, some we know and deeply love are still in the city. Tonight, an estimated 130,000 people remain in Chernigov. Would you pray for them?
  • For all driving across Ukraine (either evacuating civilians or delivering relief materials) to make the trip safely.
  • That our team would have great strength and hope, even in the midst of great loss.
  • For the strength and safety of the soldiers.
  • For the war to end!
