Letter from our CEO about Ukrainian Refugees

March 12, 2022

But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. (Genesis 50:20 NKJV)

Dear Friends,

As the atrocities unfold in Ukraine, believers around the world gather to pray that the violence would stop and that peace would return. We join with those prayers, and pray 'Amen' in unity with our brothers and sisters around the world.

I also want to share with you five more prayers that you may wish to include as you pray for peace, as well as two pieces of good news and a request for help...

  1. Pray that those displaced might hear the Gospel and receive eternal life, and that they may receive healing from the atrocities they have had inflicted on them, their families and their nations.
  2. Pray that all those who die will have the opportunity to repent and ask Jesus to pay the price for their sin before they die.
  3. Pray that the story of the Gospel will be announced in every household around the world as people are disturbed in their security, and are challenged to search their souls in this second recent global shaking.
  4. Pray for believers worldwide that they further realise, express and share the sure hope that they have in Jesus with non-believers. Also that the call to make disciples would be their focus so millions more would have an opportunity to receive salvation through the sharing of the Gospel.
  5. Pray that the global reshuffling that is taking place, would happen as quickly as possible and with as little bloodshed as possible. In addition, that any and all results of the process of this reshuffle are used to further God's plans, which includes the return of Jesus, His reign on Earth, and finally a new heaven and a new earth.

And now some great news...

The first good news is that this week we have launched World in Need Poland in response to the unfolding crisis in the region. We now have a team in Poland helping the Ukrainian refugees, connecting with churches and others, assessing requirements and allocating funds to the most needy. We give thanks for the team - please do pray for them.

The second good news is that the team in Poland are no other than our dear friends David and Magda. David and Magda began to help refugees almost as soon as the influx started, and we are delighted that we are again able to work together as World in Need Poland.

Finally, how can you help?

Pray! We know that nations can rise or fall with the power of prayer, and we urge you to cry out to Jesus on behalf of the world.

Secondly, we have opened an appeal page for all those who want to help towards supporting the refugees and we would encourage you to give if you are able. The funds will go out to WIN Poland and be used in a number of areas specifically to assist the refugees in their time of need. Further details can be found on the Ukrainian Refugee Appeal Page.

Let's continue to pray and seek God's heart but also use this time as a challenge to all who have put their faith and trust in Jesus, to share the love of God like never before to a lost and broken world.

In His service I write,

Rob
