Disciple Nations churches in Zim, Zam and Moz took up a combined offering over the last weeks and have remitted USD10,000 to add to the other Newfrontiers spheres totalling over 200k at present. Many homes have been opened among the churches in Europe and the UK.
The believers within the churches that we have close links with in Eastern Ukraine and Kyiv have managed to evacuate or survive the invasions, although with significant loss.
The latest update from Dave Devenish does mention, with deep concern, that there may be some who have been taken by Russian troops and potentially extracted to Russia.
Four key things to pray for would be:
- the recovery of any abducted believers back to Ukraine
- the sustaining of individuals and families who have either evacuated or remained
- wisdom and effectiveness for the church leaders in delivering aid and witnessing Christ.
- a ceasefire and end to war
Thank-you so much for your generosity and motivation to participate as a global family of churches across the continents. Please do keep praying for Russia, Ukraine and all affected by the conflict.
