Serving Ukraine

Serving Ukraine

Our hearts are heavy for the people affected by the war in Ukraine. We can be involved in bringing the help and hope they need through giving and praying.



Give

Gateway has sent funds to our partners who have already been serving in Ukraine and the surrounding countries hosting those who fled. We have partnered with Storyline and World Relief over the years. We also have set aside budget resources for disaster relief. We have used some of these funds during the first weekend of the conflict. As we assess the situation, we plan to send more. When we give to our campuses, we are helping with this crisis and our work to bring life and freedom to our world.

Pray

Here are some prayer points from Gateway’s Kirby Holmes, Director of Slavic Partnerships for Storyline Missions.

  1. I am writing from Lviv, Ukraine. We delivered food and supplies to the city of Lviv on Saturday from a Slovakian bus. It will make a difference providing for Ukrainians locally and also further east where the needs are greatest.
  2. Many churches are serving 3 meals a day to 100-200 displaced Ukrainians. This requires lots of resources that are not easily available. Shipments of supplies like these are vital to ongoing care for people through our church partners
  3. Pray for three church denominations organizing urgent refugee humanitarian aid in western Ukraine. Baptists, Presbyterian, and the Hope to People alliance are preparing for this critical serving need. Pray for the mobilization of financial and material aid to over 2 million refugees needing help.
  4. Pray for Russian Christians who are embarrassed and ashamed of what their county is currently doing in Ukraine. Pray against shame. Pray for their role in Russia to help bring a peaceful resolution to this conflict.
  5. Pray for Russian Christians who are embarrassed and ashamed of what their county is currently doing in Ukraine. Pray against shame. Pray for their role in Russia to help bring a peaceful resolution to this conflict.
  6. Pray for our travels and efforts as two of our Storyline staff have been traveling to Poland and Lviv to help with refugee humanitarian aid.
  7. Pray for wisdom as I develop a short-term plan (1-2 months) a medium-term plan (3-6 months) and a long-term plan (6-12 months) for ongoing engagement in the needs of Ukrainians.

Thank you gateway for your prayers. Thank you for you financial generosity to support the work of caring for people in desperate need in Ukraine.
