As of 2 pm yesterday, 40 bodies had already been recovered from under the rubble of a house in Dnipro, collapsed by a Russian rocket. The night was unexpectedly calm, as was this morning. In Dnipro, Zaporizhzhya, Kharkiv morning alarms. We are alive.
God, grant us peace!
Today our brother Anton from Starokostiantyniv celebrates his name day. Brother, may God bless you and keep you safe. Best wishes.

The Word… “It was the Sabbath that was established for man, not man for the Sabbath. Therefore, the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath as well.”
A Christian is a free man. In this freedom to which God has called us, a child of God, the Christian fulfills the law knowing that it is not on the fulfillment of the law, of works, that his salvation depends. God is love! God loves you!

We live in war, we do not live by war.

Thanks to God and our Benefactors, we have received another shipment of aid that we will be able to distribute to refugees and displaced persons in need. Oh how good and nice when brothers together… (photo)
