1 Thursday ~ Ukraine
“Our basement served as a shelter during the shelling to foster families, staff and evacuated families from Bucha,” writes the leader of Father’s House. “Therefore, we are looking for opportunities to build a bomb proof-shelter according to all the norms and regulations, which will cost $38,000. There are many children and adults whose lives are in danger and are closely connected to Father’s House. This shelter will enable a safe refuge in times of high alert. In addition, upon arrival to Ukraine of all the orphans, there is always a risk of a re-invasion and we will ensure the children’s safety with a proper shelter.” Please pray for provision for this project. Father’s House staff and children are currently in Germany (see photo).

India Christian Ministries missionaries recently distributed 30 Old Testaments and 45 New Testaments with Proverbs in seven villages. “Some people are very poor and are daily labour workers,” reported ICM. “They cannot possibly buy their own Bibles and read them. Now they have the Bible and are really happy about it. They are very helpful to them. The Bibles are in their own language of Oriya. They said that they are really a big blessing for them. They have been waiting for Bibles for a very long time. The local pastor advised them to read the Bible daily, five chapters per day, and whenever they have time memorize Bible verses and write them down in a notebook. A miracle will happen by reading the verses. Thank you so much for this help.”

Our vehicles also broke down; their bearings got damaged. Still, the Lord made it possible to get there safely. The power of God was with us and 23 persons gave their lives to God. Thanks for your prayers and support.”
