In our area the war night passed quietly. Like yesterday, rocket fire in the Kherson and Dnipro regions. Innocent people are suffering and dying. Russian terrorism is expanding. We pray for peace in our hearts and in Ukraine.

Announcement—today there will be a very large electricity deficit in Kiev. What does this mean in practice? We will find out!
Monday, is the day when Kyiv is attacked more with drones and rockets. God grant us peace.

The Word… “Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.”
“You appear as a source of light in the world, holding fast to the Word of Life.”
“Take care of yourselves!
If your brother fails, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if seven times in a day he should fault against you, and seven times he should turn to you, saying: “I repent of this,” – forgive him.”
Come Holy Spirit!
God is love.
We live in war, we do not live by war.

Kyiv and Starokostiantyniv:
Brothers and Sisters with volunteers assist refugees and displaced persons.

We have, as specified in the media, the so-called cascading light shutdowns. We are slowly getting out of power surge-sensitive equipment. Not everything can’t be secured. In this atmosphere, the President of Kiev mentions the difficult upcoming winter in the city itself. God give us Peace !!!
