BONUS Episode: Update from Ukraine
Leadership in Context with Keith Tucci
Keith Tucci interviews Pastor Mervin Strother on their experience in Ukraine. While there, they took a 17-hour van trip deep into Ukraine. They went to Kharkiv, which had recently been attacked, to distribute food.
They saw destruction. The ground was shaking because bombs were going off about 5 miles away. But they also saw a church that was alive, a church full of joy, a church that had their hands to the plow, serving God and serving others.
It was evident that the church had joy, even with shrapnel holes in the cement walls around the building. When they asked the pastor where their joy came from, he responded, “That’s who we were before the bombs; that’s who we are now.”
When they got there at 7am to distribute food, there was already a line. They ran out of food before they ran out of people. NRP has committed major resources to that area, to that particular church. They are not going to run out of food again.
There is an easy way for you to get involved by visiting NRPUkraine.com. And involve your friends and family. People want to give and want to give to a trusted source. People you wouldn’t think would give, will give. All you have to do is ask.
Every dollar literally counts right now.
There is a war going on for the hope of the people. They are not forgotten. We have not forgotten them. We will not forget them. We will continue, with your help, to provide resources, the hope of Jesus, and to care for the people there.
