Update and Prayers for Ukraine | by Cristina Ursachila and Hugh Greathead
The PF Ukraine team continues to respond to the urgent needs of detainees in Ukraine.
“Every time when we deliver humanitarian items, we tell people about Jesus. We use this time to bring the Gospel to their hearts, we share Bibles with them, we pray for them and of course we mention Prison Fellowship International, who made this work possible.” — PF Ukraine
PF Ukraine has purchased a minibus so they no longer have to rent one! Congratulations! The vehicle will serve to transport humanitarian items and evacuate mothers and children from dangerous regions of the country.
PFU provided VK-70, BVTC-108 prisons in Berdichev region and all prisons in Lwiw region with basic food supplies.
Here are specific prayers that can help guide our prayers for Ukraine:
Ask God to redeem this situation by drawing many people to Himself.
Pray for protection for all those who will spend their time in bomb shelters, metro stations or who are in the process of trying to escape the war.
Pray for all the brave volunteers risking their lives to support others.
Pray for the logistics of getting funds and humanitarian aid to churches and refugee camps so they continue to have food, medicine and other supplies.
Pray for the many pastors leading their congregations at this critical time. They carry a heavy burden.
