By God’s mercy, we completed our 22nd trip to the South. Although it was not our first trip, we still worried about distributing everything.
There were more shootings and more danger, but we were greatly encouraged to go when we recalled that people were expecting to see us and to receive the assistance.
Our main goal for this trip was to deliver 250 presents for children. In order to do so, we had to drive to six villages in the Kherson region under constant shelling with burning houses and territory. Before we went, we found out how many children lived in each village. Usually, when we arrive in a village we try to do everything quickly and with a smile because the children are always looking forward to receiving the presents. Their sincere emotions are worth all the effort.
Along the way, we delivered medication to some people in the village and an inhaler to one elderly lady with asthma.
In one of the villages, we visited the family of a boy with Down’s syndrome at their home to give him a present. It is a large family with no father present. The mother takes care of everything. They even allowed soldiers to live in their house for some period of time. So we also decided to give them a generator which would be a great help for them. After our conversation with the woman, she told us she was a Christian and that they prayed for a generator. They did not expect God would answer so fast.
Love always acts like that: it cares for the weak, the poor, the hopeless. It acts in ways that no one expects.
We are thankful to God for His protection during these trips and happy to know that through us He reminds people of His love and faithfulness.
