January Update - Torez, Ukraine

Dear Charles, Tim, Ken,
dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

Unfortunately, the war actions near Donetsk resumes and you may have already heard the name of the city Avdiivka - it has become famous recently probably worldwide.
People in Torez are scared again, but we do not lose faith and hope that our Lord will keep us safe in this war.
Because of cold weather a lot of people are sick and attendence is a bit lower as usual, but the spring is only several weeks away.

Please pray for us and for peace in our country.

Thank you for your support - it is truly like a blessing and means a lot to people here.
May our Lord blesses your families richly.
