Ukraine update 26 February

Latest from our local partners in Ukraine:

We are well, but are getting ready just in case they will try to attack us. We have 40 ppl with us here from the church that we were able to evacuate yesterday.

There is a big chance they will come to the village where we are today. They are trying to come into kiev, but all of the bridges were destroyed by our army, so they will try to come through the villages. And ours is on the way.

Also, we were cooking food and feeding our soldiers today. Our boys were able to come to them, praying for them and were able to witness to them.

We almost don’t sleep. Couple hours a day. We are praying all night, changing turns and in contact with our church members who stayed.
