So far our Ukraine team has shared that all our families and those we work with are safe. However some of those we work with have already needed to flee from their homes.
Please uphold Ukraine in prayer and our team who remain on the ground reaching those in need.
Thank You dear people, we need your prayers as never before
Update from Alyona,
As you probably know, this morning (about 4 a.m.) Putin launched a full-scale invasion into our land.
Peaceful Ukrainian cities are under strikes. Explosions were heard near major Ukrainian cities, including the capital Kyiv. The scope of the Russian attack appears to be massive. Our interior ministry reported that we were under attack from cruise and ballistic missiles, with Russia appearing to target infrastructure near major cities, Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol, Dnipro, etc. In their eearliest strikes they targeted military infrastructure with explosions reported at airfields, military headquarters and military warehouses.
Our president signed a decree on the imposition of martial law, the Verkhovna Rada approved it. Local authorities ask people not to live their homes.
Rivne wasn’t attacked so far. The closest implosions were reported in Lutsk which is about 70 km from Rivne and Zhytomyr oblast.
Please pray for us and our nation. We need your prayers as never before now
Update from Misha,
This night little town Novotoshkivske, as well as several other villages and towns, was hit by artillery rockets "Grad", which is one of the deadliest missiles used here, and also with other missiles. This December we visited Novotoshkivske and provided people there with OCL. About twenty people assemble there in the basement for Christian service. No one is hurt yet. As I am not allowed to post pictures from News here, I will post some pictures of people and the place from our last visit. Also in Ukraine today was declared a state of emergency in all territories. Russian army continues to accumulate forces near the borders of Ukraine.
