Representatives of the DNR (Donetsk National Republic) took the building of the "Word of Life" church in Donetsk

Dear friends, dear brothers and sisters!

Ask for your prayer support due to the fact that on August 13, at 22.00 pm, representatives of the DNR (Donetsk National Republic) took the building of our church. Despite the fact that the city is full of vacant buildings, they decided to take the house of God, that was not empty not for a day, in which constantly were services to God and helping the needy people.

There are no words to express the pain and sorrow! For over twenty years we have invested their hearts, our finances to the church building, and now we are deprived of the opportunity to gather for prayer and worship to God. With pain in my heart I have to inform you that this Sunday the doors of our church for the first time will not be opened for people who are hungry for God.

It is written that "many are the afflictions of the righteous, but out of them all the Lord will deliver him!" I believe that this will not last long and will come to a time of peace in our city and we will come together again in the house of God, and we praise God, serve Him, and to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ!

I will be very grateful to everyone for prayer support.
