The spiritual climate in Ukraine has dramatically changed in recent years. In the past our challenge was to “wake up” the sleepy and self-satisfied to show them their need for the living Lord, whereas today thousands are crying out to God, desperate for protection and peace.
The new challenge and opportunity is to mobilize Christians who can give “a reason for the hope that they have,” to a nation torn by war, having suffered the loss of loved ones and threatened by starvation in the war zone; to a nation divided by the poison of Russian propaganda; and to a nation which feels terribly isolated and alone.
In the midst of so much hardship and deprivation, God has given us a chance to lead a movement of volunteers bringing relief to those in the war zone and to those that have had to flee the war zones. It’s been an opportunity to share Christ not only with those in need of food, medicine, and encouragement,
but also with many of the volunteers themselves. Our role at this moment is to help those in need, to promote and facilitate forgiveness and reconciliation and most importantly to bring the message of true Hope that can only be found in Christ!
Perhaps, the Lord is calling you to come, be a part for such a time as this!
