One TMAI professor in Kyiv recently said this about his situation:
“Jesus said for us not to be afraid of those who can only kill the body, but to be afraid of the One who can destroy the soul in hell… I don’t want to act like I’m so brave or courageous because I’m not, but I feel like God’s Spirit has been ministering to me and to others in our church and helping us not to lose heart and have this heavenly perspective on the situation… God is really using the prayers of His people to strengthen us a lot.”
- For those who are still in Ukraine. Many citizens have been severely traumatized by the shelling, and several cities no longer have grocery stores or pharmacies. Pray for them and for the believers who continue to reach out with food, medical aid, and the gospel.
- For the drivers who deliver aid and gospel resources, especially to those in war zones. Some vehicles have come under enemy fire during their trips. Praise God that the capacity of EBTC to deliver aid is increasing as more vehicles and supplies are being provided. Roughly 12,000 pounds of aid is being delivered weekly.
- For those who need to escape ruined cities. In several cases, exit avenues have been demolished, forcing civilians to flee on foot.
- For the millions of refugees now in Europe, that God’s people across the region would continue to welcome and serve them with open arms.
