It is hard to believe that two months ago people were still living here and did not expect the war to reach them. Without electricity and without water, food is prepared outside today between fire breaks. Very unusual pictures of the city: a cemetery between the skyscrapers. With a small car, the brothers managed to reach the city of Mariupol via dirt roads. There they visited the brothers and sisters in faith.
The Lord gives us the opportunity to support the local brothers and sisters.
Pictures from the city of Mariupol:

Today, the city of Kharkov is severely affected by the war. Many residents of the city of Kharkov seek shelter for weeks in subway stations and basements of high-rise buildings. Svetlana goes there with orphaned children to give comfort to people. Everything she finds somewhere in the city to buy (food), she distributes among the refugees. With her bus (which was donated to her) Svetlana drives through the city to distribute bread and the Gospel to the people.
A rocket that hit the house of Sergey D. (elder of the Kharkov community) did not explode. Behind the wall of the room was the brother's family of six. All of them were spared from the impact of the missile. Thank God.
A year and a half ago, the young family rejoiced over their newborn son Efrem. A gift from heaven. On March 9, the young parents Mihail & Inna I. (both 30 years old) were out of town with their son, a tank shell ended their life here on earth. Little Efrem was not found in the process. Please pray for the relatives. May the Lord comfort them.
