Ukraine War Update

by Jews for Jesus | March 23 2022

During times of crisis, many people ask the question found in Psalm 121:1, “From where does my help come?” And many find the psalmist’s answer, “My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:2). We thank God that so many are lifting their eyes unto the hills and finding mercy and grace in this time of need.

A number of our Jews for Jesus staff are still in Ukraine, even as many have sent their spouses and children out of the country for their safety. We continue to send aid into Ukraine through our staff who have gone to Poland to serve refugees at the border, including boxes of medicine, vitamins, and personal care items. Our staff in Ukraine continue to bring food and other necessities to those in dire need. Thank you for being a part of our Jews for Jesus team and making this possible! 

Our staff are receiving reports that in the cities and towns occupied by Russian forces, the army is approaching believers and demanding to know the whereabouts of the church leaders. It seems they already know the full names and positions of the senior leaders of churches and Christian groups.

Yet in spite of these troubling reports, the staff in Ukraine continue to share the love of Messiah in the refugee-filled streets. People are very open to the gospel and to professing faith in Jesus. We are also holding prayer gatherings where we can invite those who are searching for hope. Please pray that nothing will compromise our ability to continue sharing the gospel. 

If God has put it on your heart to help, here you can give a special gift to help support these staff in Ukraine as well as others in Poland, Berlin, Budapest, and other cities where teams are welcoming in Jewish refugee families, helping provide for basic needs, and sharing Messiah.
