Did you Know?

Did you know that more than 2 million people in Ukraine have been forced to flee their homes without food, clothing and other basic personal care items, due to the ongoing war? As a result, some of these displaced people have no choice but to live in the garages of others.

Since the conflict erupted in April 2014, staggering losses have occurred, placing Ukraine in a massive humanitarian crisis with many people struggling to find true hope and healing. God’s Word is needed now more than ever in this turbulent nation.

This spring/summer, we’ll be cleaning out our homes and garages to raise money to send Scriptures to those who desperately need the Hope of Jesus in Ukraine. Will you join us?

Scripture magazine

“I live with my mom and younger sister near the front lines. Just today, my mom and I were wondering how we would survive as we had almost run out of food. Then, I went outside and saw a bus surrounded by people from my village, and I realized that someone was distributing food. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what happen to people after death, because a few people I know have died in this war, and shells have exploded close to our house a few times. My mom told me that good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell, but that didn’t comfort me much, because I still don’t’ know where I will go. And then, I received a copy of the Hope magazine and was told I could talk to God and ask Him to forgive my sins. I will think about this some more. I will read the Scripture magazine.”
