February 14, 2023

This night was spent under a calm Polish sky in Krakow.
I follow the news in the Ukrainian media. In those areas where the brothers live in Ukraine, thank God calm. The information confirms in our area of Ukraine, the night calm. Thank God. Morning, 8:30 a.m. all Ukraine “red,” alarm throughout the territory.
God, give peace to Ukraine, give peace to our hearts.

The Word… “Preach the Gospel to the whole world.”
My departure from Ukraine is related to the preaching of the Gospel. My world is where I live, with whom I meet. Lord give the Spirit so that “the Gentiles, hearing this, will rejoice and glorify the word of the Lord, and all, destined for life. eternal, will believe.”
“Peace to this house.”
May the Lord grant us peace.

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