TRANSLATION 126 day prayer Marathon. Now I'm waiting for your call, and within an hour had promised to release father Tikhon, do not cease to pray that this time it really was releasing, and this is not dragged on for days. While waiting for the call is not a great record.
The city is still tense, almost all of the student residences, recreation centers and similar residential complexes are filled by the DNI. The city's shops, always meet armed man in camouflage uniforms. In Petrovsky district of the city of Donetsk was fire, and when hit by a bomb, occurred at a mine destruction. Just DNRovcy take out the explosives from the factory "chemical agents" where it is made.
Also today, about her house stolen priest UOC-Kyivan Patriarchate Archpriest Yuri Ivanov. He served in the House Church of intercession in Petrovsky district of Donetsk. According to information previously, DNRovcy Zori Yevstratii already came to this priest and demanded that he called on his behalf to his home on the pretext of urgency of Donetsk the UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH-KYIVAN PATRIARCHATE, Archbishop Sergius, probably to his kidnap.
This afternoon were with his father, Nicholas (Roman Catholics), the father of Yuri (Greek Catholics), Sayid (Mufti of Ukraine) at a press conference the measure of Donetsk. Donetsk measures called for peaceful negotiations, as fighting in the city-millionnike can lead to a large number of victims among the civilian population, and production processes, which may lead to an environmental disaster or catastrophic suspension of production, such as blast furnace. Crime in the city has increased, the functioning of the banking system is broken. After the press conference, we, as representatives of almost all the religious palette town, had a conversation with the Mayor, asking for his intervention in the release of father Tikhon, much to our request and joined the UOC-MP.
Then my brother and I went to a boarding school for children with disabilities. This is described in the earlier negotiations, then again for father Tikhon, and at the end of the day, like a breath of air is our daily interfaith prayer.
Heavy rain was coming, and it was cold, but it's not the heat abated our prayers to God, the world and the people in our long-suffering country. We note with particular concern set our prayer tent, evening prayer with the mixed feeling when we realize that in 400 metres around us on the one hand, an armed camp, and on the other their quartering. But the responsibility before God, his own conscience and love for people, stronger than our fear, and we continue to pray, in the center of Donetsk.
Thank you to everyone who supported this Ministry and visibly show us love your prayers and donations. God's light is burning in Donetsk and Donetsk is part of our beloved homeland.
