HELP FOR UKRAINE
We have all been watching the images coming out of Ukraine. The suffering touches our hearts. The pictures of people fleeing from their homes, escaping to other countries just to be safe, have left us wondering, “What can we do? We are praying for these people, but is there a way we can help to meet their needs and show them the love of Christ?” The answer is, “Yes, you can.”
The International Mission Board, through Send Relief, has had people on the ground in Poland in recent days, assessing the situation and determining the best ways to help. The time will come for churches like ours to send teams to be directly involved, but for now the need is funds to buy blankets, to give food, to provide shelter. Send Relief, in cooperation with local Baptist partners and our IMB workers in Europe, is asking for generous donations to help supply these basic necessities of life.
One of those sent by the IMB to see what can be done is from our own congregation. As he stood on the Polish border and watched the flood of Ukrainians, mostly women and children, coming into Poland seeking refuge, he said, “It’s been overwhelming….watching this unfold. And then it hit me with sadness and compassion and lament. I’ve been on the brink of tears most of the day.”
