URGENT: THE FLOOD VICTIMS OF THE KHERSON REGION OF UKRAINE NEED HELP
Many of you have seen the news reports about the dam that was destroyed near Kherson, Ukraine. This major disaster is causing flooding in many towns and villages and threatening many thousands of people. These people need to be rescued from flood waters and provided with emergency aid like water and food. As we were told, “They are waiting on their rooftops.”
Our delivery teams from both the Poznyaki Church of Christ and the Volunteer Brothers (in the video linked above) are already loading up the needed water, food, and other humanitarian aid. The officials in Kherson have requested megaphones, boats, motors, and wading boots to assist in rescuing people. Drinking water is their number one need in addition to food and personal hygiene products. The video above was sent to us as Denis from the Volunteer Brothers was heading to the Kherson region.
The SIBI is currently receiving donations to assist in refugee efforts for the churches in Ukraine
For 25 years, SIBI has been involved in training preachers and church leaders in the nation of Ukraine, first in Donetsk and more recently in Kyiv. War caused us to move the school in 2014 and now it has forced us to suspend operations once again. Our hearts ache for all of Ukraine and especially for our students, graduates, and brethren there. We pray for them as well as for those who have chosen the path which puts them in the way of harm. Please join us and pray for peace in Ukraine.
With war, come refugees and transplanted training efforts. We at SIBI through our Global Relief Ministry will be receiving money that will be dedicated to helping in these two areas. The needs in the coming days and months are going to be overwhelming, but that must not cause us to look only to the limit of our resources but by faith to see what our God can do with our five loves and two fish. If you wish to join us in this, please see our website for ways to give to SIBI and designate funds in the memo to GRM. Again, pray for peace in Ukraine.
