June 17, 2022, Friday, 113th war night.

We went to bed and outside the windows sirens were howling warning of Russian missiles. And so almost all over Ukraine. Nothing happened in our area. We are alive and thank God.
Word… “The light of the body is the eye. So if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be illuminated. But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be in darkness. So if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” It is a gift from God to have light on your life and on this war that no one needs. Only God can bring good for me out of every evil I do and experience. For everything and at all times, bless God. God be blessed.

I want to share a joy: yesterday Br. Philip from Malta wrote me that there will be the ambulance I asked for for cardiology. In fact, it is already here, it is just a question of transporting it. This is what I am doing now. Thank God for the benefactors!!!

Things are quiet at our place. We are happy about the return of brother Leonid. Brother Vadym is going to donate potatoes to the military in the east. He is going in our bus with Sergey, the director of our Caritas. The volunteers who stay with us overnight are actively helping. Today they were close to the places where warfare is going on. Marcin in the south, Dawid in the east. Henry is scheduled to go to Kiev today. I ask for your prayers that they will all return safely to us this evening. On the ground we are distributing aid and gathering equipment for the guest room. (photo)
May God protect us and grant us PEACE
