UKRAINE: evacuating people

Every time evacuating people, I peered into their faces. Often there I see the fear, bewilderment, desire to hide.
Usually, my first words: "everything is fine. We'll help you" It's just what it gives a ray of hope that they are not alone, that someone cares about them.
Prayer - this is something that gets into the hands of each applicant. There are four prayers and I recommend them to read them every day.
Today next to me sat intelligent grandmother 77 years. She took the book of prayer with trembling hands, reread prayer and said, "Thank you for the hope."
Our God, the God of hope!

No, I communicate with clergy in Ukraine. But, Western PA Conference Missionary just returned from Ukraine & is available for speaking engagements.
Up until now, a large humanitarian crisis has largely been avoided. But as the tempo of combat increases, that becomes inevitable.

No, people have been leaving to Kiev for weeks. But, not all could afford or arrange transportation. Then, Separatists & Cossack mercenaries infiltrators from Russia moved from outside in airport & checkpoints into city neighborhoods. People huddle in their basements afraid to travel in the street where there are thieving thugs, kidnapping, rapes by Separatists.
