Ukraine Mission News – March

Dear pastors, brothers, and sisters, peace be with you! Welcome to the GLEC English Mission Hub News segment. This segment aims to provide real-time reports on various ministry activities conducted by our center worldwide. We hope that through your engagement, subscription, and sharing, we can bless more people together and witness the miraculous works of God. In recent months, as the conflict between Israel and Palestine has escalated, the two-year long Russia-Ukraine war seems to have faded from people’s minds. However, we have concerning news from our mission partner, the Ukrainian Evangelical Theological Seminary (UETS). Please see the report below:

The bloodiest war since World War II has been ongoing for two years. Today, the Ukrainian people are still enduring terrible hardships, suffering countless losses every day. Especially during the long and cold winter, living without electricity, water, and heating is unimaginable for ordinary people. The war has led to a significant increase in the number of impoverished people who cannot afford food or other necessities. They include internally displaced persons, impoverished families without income, and other vulnerable groups.

In addition to material needs, many Ukrainians are experiencing emotional trauma symptoms, despair, and depression due to the uncertainty of this war. Therefore, they need constant encouragement, counseling, and therapy. Additionally, through the direct assistance and support provided by Christians, the Love of Jesus Christ can be shared with them.

In addition to striving to maintain educational activities, our mission partners in Ukraine continue to provide hot meals to the displaced and impoverished near the theological seminary. Many rely on this meal to survive each day. The seminary also provides food for impoverished families in villages around Kyiv. Products, firewood, heaters, generators, charging stations, insect repellent clothing, and other anti-freezing items can help them get through the second harsh winter of this war.

In the midst of the turmoil, theological students from UETS actively collaborate with churches, charities, and organizations from various places to participate in this ministry. Such operations expand the scope of assistance Kyiv to more distant places, and share the Love of Christ with more vulnerable groups in different regions.

With the support and prayers of brothers and sisters, Global Life Enrichment Center collaborates with UETS on humanitarian aid and missionary work in the following four projects. We hope to stand in solidarity with the suffering people of Ukraine in this difficult time and bring the love of Christ and the light of truth to those in need.

  1. Hot meal supply: annual fundraising goal – $138,000
  2. Scholarships for theological studnts: annual fundraising goal – $138,000 for ten students
  3. Care for seminary faculty and staff: annual fundraising goal $34,500 for five staff
  4. Reconstruction of seminary buildings: one time find raising goal $11,500

This concludes our program. Please continue to like and follow our YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook channels. Thank you for watching, and see you next time.
