Due to the war and general poverty Pastors are not able to be supported by their own congregations with the full amount they need. We ask you to consider supporting some of the pastors (refugees; from the grey zone of the military conflict) with the amount which will help them to concentrate on their pastoral ministry. With the financial support given by various local and Western churches and organizations, we’re able to support some pastors, but there are several more who need support. We are going to present reports on these brothers in the months to come.
Eduard Nosachev, Lisichansk
The general state of his congregation and of the town where Eduard (pictured above on the left) lives is described under congregational needs. In order to support his family, Eduard works as a track driver. That takes most of his time. We know for the church facing such difficult circumstances it is critically important to have their shepherd nearby daily, so we request financial support for this dear Brother.
The amount needed is $400.00 per month. The support is needed starting May 2016
Yuri was pastoring a congregation in the town of Alchevsk, Lugansk region. When the war started he had to flee with his family. He left everything behind. The city is occupied now by separatists and Yuri is on a black list because of his pro-Ukrainian position shown at the beginning of the conflict. He ended up in a town across the country in Western Ukraine and right away got involved in a new church plant work. He has weak health and a lot of their money is spent for various medications. The apartment rent cost and the medications take most of their small income. The amount needed for Yuri is $200.00 per month. The support is needed starting May 2016.
