Greetings from Germany, as we started writing this newsletter, we were looking out the window gazing upon the breath taking beauty of the European Alps. Yet, our hearts ache for the displaced victims in the Ukraine.
So, since February 2022, Paula and I have been in Fussen, Germany ministering in churches in Germany and teaching at “The School of Revival, Bible school in Fussen” (Schule Der Erweckung).
We had been here for less than a month when war broke out in the Ukraine. Cubit has supported a Bible school an orphanage in Ukraine, so the first thing we did was make contact with people in Georgia who were affiliated with the orphanage and the school. Fortunately, they were able to get all orphans out of Ukraine and into Germany. However, there was more difficulty with the evacuation of the Bible school. It took a while but we got most of them out of the Ukraine into a safe place. In addition, we worked closely with The Jesus Haus Church and Bible school who sent 13 teams to the Ukrainian border (Cubit funded three of these teams.) The teams helped the refugees with hot food, water, shelter, warm clothes and blankets, as well as, counseling and a new Bible. The church also provided more permanent housing for the refugees with 50 church families and the city of Fussen provided a large housing facility for many people. Through our contacts in Berlin and Dubai we helped secure from Russia a refugee evacuation passage. Please pray for frightened war victims that the Lord will give them peace and protection. There is also great concern here in Germany as they remember that it was only 33 years ago that the Eastern portion of Germany was under the control of Russia’s communism. So there is fear not only in Germany but also in Poland, Moldova, Romania, and the Baltic states, of its return.
But according to Romans 8:28, “So we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (NKJV)
Thank you to all the students and staff that went and are still on the border and in Ukraine in many areas.
WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU THAT SENT FUNDS FOR UKRAINE! You provided during a great need.
