Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting FEBC Ukraine staff members, detailing how you can support them through prayer.
Here is an update about our prayer helpline counselors:
For FEBC Ukraine’s prayer helpline counselors, this Easter season is one that has been filled with both suffering and joy.
Listeners who have experienced tragedy and are living in fear, call with terrible stories, asking for prayer. What is incredible is that they are finding hope and encouragement as they turn to Jesus, many of them for the first time.
One caller asked for prayer when his young daughter and her grandmother were shot at while evacuating. His daughter was seriously injured and had to undergo several operations.
“She was in so much pain, and the morphine did not help,” he said.
As counselors prayed with him, he thanked God that his daughter was now recovering well and began praying for the salvation of many of his family members.
Another caller, a mother of two, shared, “I can’t handle this anymore. We can hear the fighting just a few kilometers away.”
She told counselors that she tried to distract herself and her children from the war, but that it was impossible. “The sirens were blaring so loudly today, it was unbearable.”
After talking and praying with the counselors further, this mother decided to put her faith in Jesus during this call.
Please pray for FEBC Ukraine’s prayer helpline counselors as they help callers find comfort, hope, and new life in Jesus Christ.
This is a time of great emotional upheaval for the counselors as well. Please pray that God encourages and strengthens them emotionally and spiritually, and that He protects them and their families in this dangerous time.
