Ukraine Update: Your Giving Matters

UPDATE: March 18, 2022

We at TWR are so appreciative to all of you who have given to our Ukraine-Russia Crisis Fund. This is something you couldn’t have budgeted for at the beginning of the year, and yet about 300 of you have seen the need and found a way to respond.

On behalf of our team in Eastern Europe, thank you.

We want you to know that your money is being put to use in practical, meaningful ways.

Here’s one example:

In our last update, we mentioned a TWR Ukraine technician who managed to escape from a town near Kyiv that had been destroyed. He then traveled with his family and three other families to a site in western Ukraine that is relatively safe.

But they had no belongings.

With your financial support, a partner in a bordering country was able to provide these families with medicine and other needed items as well as technical equipment needed to keep the ministry going.

Yes, even with all they are going through, the handful of people who make up the staff of TWR Ukraine remain determined to keep providing encouraging, biblical content to the people of their country.

As Frank Stephenson, TWR Europe communications director, put it:

It is amazing to see how dedicated the TWR Ukraine staff are in reaching their listeners in these extreme, life-threatening circumstances.

Stephenson notes that in addition to helping this family, the crisis fund is being used to ensure that programming for the region continues on our transmitters.

That includes programming being prepared on trauma, trauma therapy and counseling, both from within TWR and in partnership with other ministries.

One example of this is a podcast series consisting of music and Bible verses chosen to calm the storms of anxiety and fear. A Ukrainian musician who fled to Germany has offered to do the music, and a member of the TWR Ukraine staff will read the Scriptures.

There is so much to be done. Please continue to pray and, as you’re able, to give.

Will you pray with us?
  • The conflict and all of the uncertainty that goes with it remain a great source of tension for all of TWR’s ministry contacts in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Please pray for the Lord to supernaturally gift our staff with the peace of God and the ability to convey that to their listeners.
  • Praise God that all of the TWR Ukraine team members are still alive. Please continue praying for protection and wisdom on their behalf.
  • The Kharkiv studio technician and his family, including a special-needs child, are at a temporary stopping point while preparing for another leg in their journey toward a longer-term destination in Central Europe. Praise God for financial support they’ve received, and please continue to pray for them as they travel.
  • Give thanks also that the TWR Ukraine director was able to make it to Kyiv and back to where his family is temporarily staying farther west in Ukraine. While there, he was able to pick up some items from the studio that can be used by the team from various locations.
