Delegation of the Russian Union of Evangelical Christian-Baptists comes to Ukraine
The Delegation of the Russian Union of Evangelical Christian-Baptists (RU of ECB) will visit Ukraine on a charitable mission, reports The Christian Telegraph.
The delegation will include believers of Baptist Churches of the Krasnodar Territory, the Republic of Adygea and the Rostov region. Bishop Vladimir Drok will lead the delegation. The material and spiritual support of churches is the purpose of the trip, which is third in a row.
“This is the third time when brothers of the churches of Krasnodar Kray and Republic of Adygea, together with their brothers of Rostov Association of Baptist Churches, headed by Bishop V.N. Drok are going to Ukraine with a charitable mission to support the church, not only financially, but also spiritually. The situation in Ukraine has become one of the most debated topics in recent times. The life of the Ukrainian people was divided into “before” and “after.” The churches of Lugansk and Donbass became islands of hope for many unbelievers. But, who will remain unbeliever during the war, it’s another question?” said a statement on the website of RU of ECB.
“Many believers are united in prayer for Ukraine, providing both material and spiritual assistance. Nobody discusses politics. The hearts of believers are open to communication, to help not only those of faith, but also to all those around them. With tears of joy and gratitude they meet brothers from Russia. In many churches began to arise a ministry for “unbelievers” called “God's dining room.” They prepare dinners of food imported from Russia to all in need, including non-believers!
“Humanitarian aid is distributed among our brothers and sisters, and among non-believers. The list of products is not complicated, all food that you can keep for a long time: cereals, flour, pasta, and also personal hygiene products and medicine,” says the report.
