MPI Food packages are regularly sent around the country to wherever they are needed most. Recently a team of volunteers, our trusted partners from Christian Hope Church in Kiev traveled to the eastern part of the country to take blankets and food to people in need.
The driver, Victor, shares his experience:
“Every time I visit the east, I visit this family. They live in Stanitsa Lugansk. The parents Natasha and Maxim have seven children to feed and care for. They are very poor. There is no internet service in this community at all. No one can afford frivolous things like phones or computers.
I have been visiting this family, helping with emergency needs and sharing Christ, for several years now. Praise God, this past year in 2020, they accepted Christ. After all the love we and caring Canadians have shown, they now trust God and understand that Jesus cares for them.
We brought gifts when we visited this March 2021. We had bags of staple foods, fruit, and warm blankets. We know they don’t have much. When we arrived, the kids were eating dinner. Every one of them licked their plates clean and there were absolutely no leftovers.”
"Thank You MPI for supporting me with food and prayer!”
“I came to God when I met other believers who told me about Christ. They invited me to a home group, where I repented and accepted Jesus into my heart. He changed my whole life. In 2014 the war broke out in Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine. My daughter and I fled to the western part of the country. We went to Ternopol to stay with my son until everything calmed down in Donetsk. Now we are permanently displaced. We go to the Testimony of Christ Church (MPI partners) and thank God for the help we have been given here.
In January of 2020, I was hit by a car. I was injured and underwent two operations on my spine and arm. Because of this, I can’t work right now. We rent an apartment and struggle with expenses. Thank God for your care and support. It came at exactly the right time.”
