Digging In — Looking Ahead to the Long Haul
Joshua Steele · June 4, 2022
It has now been over 100 days since Russia invaded our home — the beautiful country of Ukraine. We’re all ready for this nightmare to end, but reality is not as simple as we would like. In this episode, we’ll share our thinking about the long-term implications of the war for our family and ministry. We’ll update you on several key fronts, and we’ll close out the episode with an informative synopsis of the military situation on the ground in Ukraine.
Thank you so much for listening to our podcast! Please share this episode with your friends, and pray for our family as we continue ministering to Ukrainians in Eastern Europe.
💙💛 Radekhivski Hospodyni
Also in this episode, we talk more about the charity foundation “Radekhivski Hospodyni”. Their volunteers are working hard to send aid to soldiers on the front lines. They collate, package, and ship everything from food stuffs and medicines to shoes, clothing and even tactical gear. They’ve been in operation since 2014 when Russia first attacked Crimea and eastern Ukraine. If you’re curious, you can see photos of their work on their Facebook page.
If you would like donate to Radekhivski Hospodyni, you can do so easily by sending funds via PayPal to Yura (Yuriy) Petriv. (details below) Yura is a member of our church in L’viv and a personal friend of more than 20 years. He receives funds from American donors and uses them to purchase and deliver the specific supplies requested by Radekhivski Hospodyni. Don’t forget to choose the “family and friends” option so that Yura will receive the full amount of your gift.

How You Can Pray
- Pray for Serhii and Natallia and their children as they persevere through prolonged separation. Pray for Serhii as he finishes his training and heads to the front lines, likely in a couple of weeks.

- Pray for speedy progress with our Slovakian residency.
- Praise the Lord for the provision of our new van! (Details coming soon in the next issue of Overseas Field Report.)
