Our thoughts and efforts have, in recent days, been drawn to Ukraine. We are praying on every day and in every gathering for the people of Ukraine, their leaders, and especially the gospel workers.
On Sunday February 13, gospel workers Mina and Gennady Podgaisky spoke to our congregation about their work in Kiev. They came on furlough last year, arriving in the United States on December 3rd. You can read the transcript of what they said to us on February 13 or watch the entire service HERE.
Since then, we have learned that their center of ministry there, the Village of Hope, has been destroyed by the Russian soldiers.
We have joined with many others to raise money for our work their through the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF). Like many other religious, secular, and governmental groups, they are serving the needs of millions of refugees, most of them women and children. You may give through our church using any of the standard methods (Sunday offering, mailed check, or on-line gift). See the directions HERE.
Or you may give directly through the CBF to the Ukraine Relief Fund HERE.
