Week of Prayer for Ukraine!

Our church has agreed to host an e-mail “Week of Prayer” for Ukraine on their e-prayer list! The prayer e-mails will go out from this Thursday through Sunday. We are so excited to partner with them in praying – you can also follow along the same e-mail prayer requests through our newsletter.

If you are already a part of our newsletter list, you can click here or follow the link that was in the last e-mail we sent out with the subject “Week of Prayer for Ukraine!”

If your church would like to partner with us, please send an e-mail to Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 9.10.33 AM so that we can connect with your pastor / missions director.

Oh my dear Ukraine! (Katya’s first post!)

ImageIt is so hard to be here in America when all these things are happening in Ukraine and I have no idea what Ukraine will be when we will come back.

All that to say, I see more and more that this is not all about politics any more; it is a spiritual battle against those “who call evil good and good evil,” (Isaiah 5:20,21). It is a battle for justice and truth. I love that churches have an important role and influence in this protest, so that even the government saw it and began to threaten them. A lot of priest, pastors, spiritual leaders and just believers are at the “Maydan” to share the Gospel, to preach, to pray, to encourage, to help…. and people are coming to God! Is’t it awesome!?!?! But my heart hurts, because still those people get hurt.

Let us hold fast and pray for Ukraine. These days are very important for our country.

Let us pray for:

  • That the Ukrainian people would turn to God and Jesus Christ
  • People on the square – their safety and stability
  • Security forces – so that they protected instead of hurt people
  • Changes in the hearts of the government
  • The economic weight of the protests on the nation

Thank you and God bless!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas, everyone! Thank you all for your love, prayers, and support! We are flying home to David’s dad today. We’ll be with him for about a week, then go visit David’s mom, and then move on to visiting other friends and the many churches that support our work here in Ukraine. Please be praying for this trip for us – it’s very important!
