The crisis in Ukraine has signaled that our world is once again changing in big ways. While we in North America take our own national views on this, looking at the events from a spiritual point of view creates a whole new perspective.
The following report is from an article on Cru’s site.
“On the frontlines of ministry in Ukraine are Cru staff and volunteers.
Cru staff members and local Christians have together distributed over 100,000 Bibles and New Testaments to Ukrainians.
God is using the upheaval to open the hearts of the Ukrainian people. Our national staff report that they haven’t seen this level of spiritual hunger since the wall came down in the early 90’s.
Please take a moment to watch this video update.
“Seeing that people are very open, we realize that we have a very good opportunity for active evangelism. We also understand that this won’t last for a long time and so we want to seize this moment as a time of action.”
– Sasha Zibarov, Ukraine Operations Director
“There is great openness right now and the ministry and church need to be ready to move forward with God’s Word as many people are hurting and open right now.”
– John Musgrove, Campus Ministry Leader, Kiev
Please pray for this country as well as for our staff members’ safety and strength as they minister in the midst of the turmoil.”
