May 5-15, 2023, our team will partner with Victory Church in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova to work with the refugees from Ukraine.
Ever since the war between Russia and Ukraine started in February of 2022, Victory Church became involved in hosting, feeding and helping the Ukrainians find shelter and travel to other countries in Europe if they chose to do so. Many of them have found Jesus because they were overwhelmed by the kindness and love they found in the church.
As we return to Moldova to continue our ministry to the refugees our team will host a special children’s ministry, where most of the children will be Ukrainians and some others Moldovan, many of them will be hearing the Gospel message for the first time.
We will provide, pack and distribute substantial grocery supply packs for hundreds of refugee families. Before the food bags are given out, the WMA team will share testimonies and a short Gospel message. Many of the refugees will accept Jesus during this outreach as they did on our most recent trip to Moldova in July/Aug. Others will sign up for our medical clinic and women’s conference and have opportunities to hear the Gospel again during those outreaches.
At the medical clinic, WMA physicians will examine patients and our nurses will distribute much needed vitamins and supplements. If you are a physician or nurse and would like to help us minister to the Ukrainian refugee families in Moldova through medical clinic outreach, please consider joining us on this mission!
Most of the refugees are women and children because men are not allowed to leave Ukraine. We will host a women’s conference where we will focus on the emotional needs of the women and how Jesus meets them right where they are. We’ll provide special gifts for every woman, sing songs with them, teach them worship dances, share the Gospel and pray with them.
Our team will also minister to men in the drug rehabilitation center started by Victory Church. We will pour encouragement into the lives of men who have been rejected by society and deemed hopeless.
All the people whose lives are touched by our team will receive follow up and care from our partners in Victory Church. Building lives in Christ is a slow process and we plan to continue to remain involved in the lives of these newly saved families and let them know that they have brothers and sisters in Christ who care for them on a regular basis.
If you have a heart for the Ukrainian refugees, children/youth/women’s ministry or outreach to people with addictions we need you on this team!
Please let me know if God is calling you on this mission as we have a limited number of spots on this team. I am praying that the Lord hand selects individuals to fulfill this vital mission!
