From the beginning, I would like to thank all those who in one way or another have been with us in this ministry of serving Ukrainian refugees. God will surely reward your involvement.
For those of you who don’t know, since the war started, I watched a video in which a father cried on his little girl’s chest, because she and her mother was going to leave him, to go to Romania to safety, I knew I had to to do something, I knew it was the part I had to do, to the glory of God. I told that in the church but also in the community where I live, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly people responded and helped.
A widow who comes to the church, whom we usually help, boiled 10 eggs, packed them well and brought them for refugees. We filled a minibus with supplies and together with my wife we went to Custom to see how things were. I understood that in addition to physical needs (food, water, clothing, medicine, etc.) there is a need for the refugees to be transported where they had contacts and in this direction we got involved.
Thus we began, and until it is needed we will seek to be consistent in being the Hands and Feet of Jesus for them, to show the love of Christ for them because it is not about us but about the love and goodness of God shown to them, through us.
In one of the transports I had a Muslim, Mohamed was his name, he had lost everything after the bombings. He had 2 businesses in Ukraine, but now he had nothing left, they had no money for food, coffee or anything. Every time we transport them, we take care of everything they need, which amazes them, but I tell them that all we do, is in the name of Jesus Christ. After a discussion with him, he told me that there is no difference between Jesus and Muhammad, that they are the same. I didn’t try to argue with him, but the only thing I did was to show him love. When we arrived at the destination, he came to me and said that he had to admit one thing and said that if we Christians were in this situation, they, the Muslims, would not have done for us what we do, to give their time and money to help us. I replied: “This is the love of Jesus.”
Another woman, Tatiana, said that for the rest of her life she will associate Romania with our people and that she will not forget our help for the rest of her life.
This ministry could not have been accomplished without your support, we thank the Lord for each of you who have been guided by the Holy Spirit to be a part of this ministry.
We still want to serve in this area of refugees 3 days a week and the other 4 days we will be involved in serving the people we work with in our community.
This month we also enjoyed having guests, friends from the Live Global organization, who served side by side with us, as long as we were together.
We also had an evangelistic event, on Mother’s Day. The women were very happy, but the most important thing was that we could talk about Jesus as our Redeemer.
Through the “Good Seed” project, we managed to distribute seeds to people for their gardens, but of course we put a daily meditation booklet about God with these seeds. We pray that the Lord will work through any situation.
Pray also for the women with whom my wife meets and studies the “Women of Scripture” that the Lord will open their minds to understand and their hearts to believe what the Scriptures say.
