Please don’t stop praying for Ukraine! One of our in-country staff reported on March 24, “A large number of Russian troops have surrounded Ukraine on the north, east and southern borders. The Russian minister of Foreign affairs has promised that they will not make an intervention into Ukraine. The problem is, we have no reason to believe them. The situation is still extremely tense. If the Russian troops should go into Ukraine, we have reason to believe it would happen very suddenly and quickly. It would pose a physical threat to all of our branches and people. On the other hand, we might live with a tense situation for months, without anything actually happening. This is not just a physical battle. This is a spiritual battle! Ephesians 6:12-20.” —Arne Tafjord, administrative staff
