From devastation to blessing

Ukraine — it’s now a forgotten war. No longer does it feature in Western news bulletins or confront us on the front pages of our newspapers.

Missionary Spotlight – Ukrainian churches

One of the world’s largest missionary agencies classifies contemporary Ukraine as ‘evangelised’.
