Roman Rakhuba, executive director of the Association of Mennonite Brethren Churches in Ukraine (AMBCU), shares about AMBCU’s ministry to the war-torn areas of eastern Ukraine. They deliver relief kits, clothes, medication, wheelchairs, and Christian literature to the people that live in the war zone. They put on church services, run youth ministries, and provide other psychological supports for people in crisis.

The church in Ukraine is under a great deal of pressure and is ministering in a seemingly impossible situation, but “God is never late, and he is in no rush,” says Roman. Praise God for these brothers and sisters living by faith.
