Dear <<First Name>>, 


Putin has officially recognized the breakaway territories in Eastern Ukraine and he has sent Russian military across the Ukrainian border and into Dontestk and Lugansk. Because of these developments the Ukrainian government has called for a 30 State of Emergency and is calling up its reservests.

We call you to urgent prayer for this situation. Pray that the Russian forces would turn around and go home. Pray for those defending Ukraine. Pray for peace and safety here. Pray for wisdom concerning possible relocation for our church. 

In my last letter I shared with you that we would be holding a conference on Saturday. What I didn't tell you was that the conference was in Dontetsk region not far from the front lines of the war. This past weekend I traveled to the front lines. I meet with the church leaders there. I visited their churches and I saw here the shells and the rockets landed leaving destruction behind them.

However, the most astonishing and the most powerful thing I saw were not the rockets or the blown-out walls of an apartment building but rather the faith of men and women who have chosen to serve their God and turn their backs on the threat of tanks and mortars!

One pastor from the break-away territories told me, "It's worse than the Soviet Union, constant pressure from above." Another pastor I met with sent me a video the day after I came home of him and his family sitting in their basement bomb shelter, singing hymns while kaboom of shelling continued above ground.

Last night we gathered our church to discuss the possibility of emergency evacuation. People are getting worried and we are doing what we can to calm their fears. Yes, it is somewhat stressful waiting for the enemy to attack.

I wanted to share with you more about the conference but, honestly, the last few days I've been on the phone more than off of it. I'm sorry if I haven't responded to everyone but lately I've been getting far more emails and communications than regular. 

Psalm 55:16-19 NIV - 16 As for me, I call to God, and the LORD saves me. 17 Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. 18 He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. 19 God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change--he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.
