Grateful, even in challenging times

We’ve safely made it to the end of our financial year… and, my goodness, it’s been a challenging one.

The ongoing war impacts those we work alongside. The threat of mobilisation has meant two of our partners have left their home indefinitely. More tragic, was news of an orphan we know, forcibly sent to the front line. Anxiety is high in Russia and one of our partners, while expressing why there is such need said this…

"It's hard to live… War… High prices. Parents have to work constantly… Children are abandoned and start using drugs early. Men drink… because of what is happening around… They beat women. Many find themselves on the street.” We are probably more needed than we’ve ever been as the needs in Russia are increasing.

However, amidst the challenges there was much to be grateful for.

We made it through another year maintaining our financial commitments… this feels like a miracle to us so thanks be to God for His provision and every donor who kindly stewarded funds our way in 2022/23.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary in March. Meeting some of our supporters in person for the first time was really wonderful.

We went to the Keswick convention for the first time in a long time (and will be returning later this year).

We also celebrated two weddings and at least four baptisms of residents from our crisis centres!

Despite the conflict, we urge you to continue praying for ordinary Russians in crisis and Russian Christians in ministry. God loves every person, without exception.

Please pray for us as a charity too, that we can continue responding to needs and have the resources to do it. Regular donations are what enable us to commit to projects long term. If this is something you can consider doing we would be extremely grateful.
