Pray for Ukraine

  • Jetzt nehmen wir 41 Flüchtlinge in unserer Gemeinde in Poltawa und 24 Flüchtlinge in der Gemeinde in Ljuboml auf.
    Möge die Menschen auf ihrer Durchreise Jesus begegnen.

  • Seit Beginn des Krieges hatten wir die Gelegenheit, so vielen Kindern, die für einige Tage in unserer Gemeinde blieben, um weiterzuziehen, Freude zu bereiten und Geschenke zu machen. Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, mit ihnen und ihren Eltern über Gott und seine Liebe zu sprechen. Wir sind sehr froh, dass wir eine solche Gelegenheit hatten.

    In den letzten Wochen haben wir eine Gruppe von Kindern aus mehreren Familien gebildet, die bereits in unserer Gemeinde verwurzelt sind und noch in Poltawa leben, und wir haben mit ihnen einen vollwertigen Kurs von 12 Lektionen begonnen.

    Gott ist gut, und dies ist eine sehr wertvolle Ressource. Die Kinder sind glücklich, und wir sind es auch.

  • Mitarbeiter die die Gemeinde in Poltawa und Sawodskoje leiten. Wir wollen beten, dass Gott sie leitet.
  • In our congregation in Calw there are a number of Christians who have fled from Ukraine. Also pastors. Among the other refugees in the city there are also many Ukrainians who still have no support and hope in Jesus. And our brothers and sisters feel a mission here....
    It may be similar in other cities. Let us pray that many of the refugees will find peace in Jesus in Germany, along with cordiality and political peace.
  • More refugees from Kharkov arrive every day. The soup in the pot is enough for about 50 people. Let us pray that Jesus will also be the topic of conversation and that God's Spirit will shape the atmosphere of the community. 
  • Photo after the service on March 27. We thank God for the church in Poltava, which is tirelessly a hub for relief supplies and refugees. May God continue to preserve and strengthen them, in body and soul. They proclaim Jesus in the midst of chaos.

  • The refugees are well accommodated in our families and communities - and are heartily grateful for it. But almost all of them fear for family members and friends who are still in the embattled Ukraine. This tension of the heart can only be endured without harm by God's grace.The peace of God keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus", Paul wishes in Philippians 4:7. This is exactly how we want to pray earnestly.

    We pray for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine,

    that hatred does not gain access to their hearts, but that the peace of Jesus preserves them

     

    That in the midst of existential anxiety and fear of the future, they can stand out by trusting God and point to Jesus through words and deeds of love.

     

    That the pastors and staff be made wise by God to lead the congregations wisely and to strengthen them through the appropriate biblical texts

  • Russia

    Our brothers and sisters are seeing store shelves become emptier and international relations more complicated. Our pastors and church leaders need wisdom and spiritual direction on what to preach about on Sundays and how they can and may name political events. We pray for our churches in Russia.

  • We pray that no hatred enters our hearts, that we distinguish between political system and people. Between Russia and the Russians.
    Hebrews 12:15 "and see to it ... that no bitter root grows up and causes discord, and that many become unclean through it."
  • We pray for the aid transport worker who was shot and is now in the hospital.
  • Brothers and sisters from our church were able to get 29 people out of a bombed area. We pray that God will continue to preserve the brothers and sisters and that they will be able to share the love of Jesus in the suffering situations.
  • Our community in Lujboml continues to be in action.
     
    " ... for I was hungry and you gave me food ... " Matthew 25, 35
  • We pray that enough food can always be brought to Poltava and that our staff will have sensitivity and strength for pastoral care.
  • We pray for the refugees who stop briefly in our Church in Poltava on their way west. They sleep one or two nights, they eat and they want to refuel their souls.

Calw, den 26.01.2022

Dear bothers and sister, dear friends, 

the new year has begun and the work in the kingdom of God continues.

 

The brothers and sisters from Poltava invited disabled children with their parents to their church at Christmas. 42 children and many adults accepted the offer. A nice program with the Christmas story was presented to them and afterwards the children were given presents and there was also a good feast. Last week 6 of these women came to the women's hour.

For the Orthodox Christmas celebration on 06th January 22 the brothers and sisters from Poltawa went to their daughter parish in Savodskoye with the same program. The new parish hall was well filled with children and parents.

 

There, too, the good news of the Gospel was joyfully shared. That weekend, the pastors David and Maria and other co-workers went to the Donets region for missionary work. (750 km on snowy roads) With testimonies and sermons they could serve the brothers and sisters in Kamenka and Donskoe. The return trip took 12.5 hours. And now the work on the extension of the second floor continues. The janitor's apartment was occupied some time ago by an employee couple with two children. Step by step, one room after the other is being completed. We were able to pay for the building materials for the renovation by mid-February.

But more building materials have to be bought, like paint, linoleum, two sinks with fittings, curtains, wallpaper and more. Then, in February, a leisure time for young people is to be held in the new rooms with overnight accommodation. The young people from Poltava will also be invited.

 

We are also planning a missionary retreat in Savodskoye and Poltava from 06-16.05.2022. If someone is interested, he is welcome to contact us.

Irma and I will be there. In the evenings we want to hold evangelistic meetings.

During the day we also plan to go on excursions and distribute tracts, and possibly also to work in a Christian rehabilitation facility in Poltava. With Irma we will continue our journey and visit our churches in Donetsk and Zaporozhye regions.

From 08-11.06.2022 we want to hold our 28th pastors and staff conference in Tbilisi/Georgia with about 35 participants from Ukraine, Russia and Georgia. Also this year we will send many packages with humanitarian aid for our sponsored children and poor families.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported the Eastern projects last year with prayer and financially. Of course, we are dependent on this again this year. Above all, however, our thanks go to our heavenly Father, who has accompanied us in this missionary work for about 30 years.

 

Kind regards

Walentin and Irma Schüle.

Danke!
