Ukraine: Fiona on the Frontline Week 6
Blog by Fiona Sorbala
Back in Berlin again after a break at home to celebrate Passover. I was aware that on 8 April, in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, two missiles exploded over the railway station building. Deadly cluster munitions were dropped, killing 59 people and injuring hundreds more.
I am currently trying to help one of the survivors; a young woman with an infant who is less than a month old, to get to Berlin from Poland. I have found a family who will take her in. However, the young woman is deeply traumatised, and I am not sure whether we can persuade her to take the train to Berlin.
Please pray that I will be able to find a solution.
Here in Berlin, we are setting up ministries to work among the Ukrainians who have arrived here. I am thrilled to say that we started a refugee bible study which has been running for a couple of weeks already.
We now have Ukrainian volunteers who will co-ordinate each ministry.
Life seems a bit more peaceful and the numbers of refugees arriving has slowed significantly. The plan is to equip and start these ministries while we can, but also be ready to switch if there is another wave of refugees arriving, as many people believe there will be.
