Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are so grateful for your constant support and prayers. We continue to be in a safe place. Slavik takes trips back into Ukraine to take humanitarian aid. Please pray for these trips.
This Saturday, April 2nd at 1:00 CST we will be on Zoom to meet with you. We will share about how God is working in our lives and how staff and volunteers continue to serve during this very difficult time. Please join us.

Military Aid - Camp LELA
All of Camp LELA supplies are gone. It makes us sad, but we know that we did the right thing. The soldiers are protecting us and they need camp supplies in order to fight the battle. Thank you to those of you that have supported this ministry for years, now that support is passed onto helping our country.

Camp LELA has been cancelled for 2022. Please pray for us as we grieve this loss. Our favorite part of the year is summer with the kids.
There continues to be shortages of food and limits on purchases in Odessa. We are buying food and supplies in Moldova and Romania and crossing the border with this humanitarian aid. It took some effort to get the paperwork approved, but thank God we are able to do this.
The products are bought in bulk and our staff and volunteers work to divide it up into smaller packages.
We are grateful for those that are helping us in these foreign countries and also for the drivers that spend hours at the border.
Food Destribution
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, people were not prepared for this crisis.

Many are now without work and even were not paid for their last month of work because all the owners, managers, and supervisors left the country.
We are sending all the food and supplies we can to the families that we have been working with, the elderly, individuals with special needs, and large foster families.

Many of these vulnerable people are not able to go stand in lines that the government has for distribution of food. We are visiting each person at their home to provide what they couldn't get on their own and to take time to encourage and pray with them.
Train Staiton
The train station is one of the busiest places in Odessa as it is a hub for smaller towns and for towns further east. Some do come to settle in Odessa, but many are just there until they can get on the next train further west or out of the country.
Our team and volunteers decided this was the place to serve. We have been passing out gifts from Samaritan's Purse and 1000's of sandwiches.
How can you help?
1. We need peace and God's wisdom in all of this for ourselves and for our country.
2. For our staff and volunteers that continue to serve even though they have the same situation.
3. For our vehicles that are now traveling 1000's of miles every week.
4. For our family as we think about the future.

We are so grateful for your love, prayers, and support.

God Bless,
Slavik and Alyona
