Latest Updates from Ukraine

Despite civil unrest in Ukraine, our churches there are thriving and rising to the challenge of meeting the desperate needs of people all around them. We rejoice that God has given new life and renewed vision to his people in Ukraine. Since the passing of long-term worker, John Wiens, in early 2014, God has provided graciously for the church through the involvement of new leadership. Johann Matthies, our European Director, has provided help through regular visits to the area, and in late 2014, James and Elfrieda Nikkel were appointed as “champions” of our Ukraine Ministry, representing our ongoing work there. The Nikkels are involved in encouraging church leaders in Ukraine and in resourcing the work of the New Hope Training Center and its assocated ministries that offer essential mentoring and training for orphans. James and Elfreida are encouraged with the effectiveness of these ministries and the passion in the hearts of the staff.

Please continue to pray for the churches in Ukraine as they face the plight of war. Pray also for the vital ministry among orphans like the New Hope Training Center, that their staff would be encouraged and that they would receive the necessary funding.

Donations to this project are used where most needed for ongoing ministry through our Ukraine projects.
