Hundreds of Jewish and Slavic people are being reached through your faithfulness to Messiah's Compassion during this war in Ukraine. I was just recently in Kyiv. Our LORD continues to work through very dedicated Jewish Messianic Pastors in Ukraine; we especially see evidence of their ministry in SE Ukraine and in Kyiv, and Odessa. Many food packages and medicines are being delivered every week. Thank you for your steadfast prayers that this war would cease and that peace would come to the region.

In early April, Jeff had the opportunity to lead a Passover Seder dinner for the local Czech Pentecostal congregation in Cesky Tesin. The pastors and workers did such a wonderful job organizing the dinner and preparations for the special event. Yeshua (Jesus) is our Passover Lamb, who paid for our deliverance from sin.
Messiah's Compassion continues to send support to purchase foods and medicines for Ukraine to assist Jewish people still in Kyiv, Odessa and Zaporozhye. Each city has experienced rocket attacks and threats of invasion. Likewise, support is regularly sent to help ministry in Haifa, Israel for Return to Zion congregation who is serving new Jewish refugees coming from the war in Ukraine. Your prayers and giving are effective for His Kingdom's purposes. Thank You!!

This precious 91 years old holocaust survivor perished in Mariupol, Ukraine this week. She survived Nazi German invasion by hiding in a basement, but this time she did not survive the terrible invasion by her neighboring country. How horrible and sad!
Please pray for the precious Jewish and Slavic people of Ukraine. I have close friends who are near the heart of the war zones. Our congregation partner leaders in SE Ukraine had to evacuate due to heavy fighting that has come to their city. They are doing their best to return so they can deliver foods to the remaining elderly and other needy Jewish people.
Keep praying for peace in Ukraine and in Israel. Israel has been repeatedly targeted with terrorist attacks prior and during Passover. There have been riots in Jerusalem and rocket attacks in the south. Fortunately, not all news there is bad. Newcomers from Ukraine are arriving and receiving aid and prayers in Israel, escaping the war.
Messiah's Compassion is supporting efforts to bring food and medicines to the needy in Ukraine, helping refugees in Europe, and sending support to ISRAEL for refugees there as well. Thank you for your generosity!

I (Jeff) want to thank you for your ongoing steady support and especially for the prayers for the recent ministry among Jewish people in Poltava, Ukraine. Three Jewish people prayed to receive forgiveness of sin and accept Yeshua as Messiah! The Messianic Jewish congregation was so warm and receptive during the preaching of the Word. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and the potential to begin going there periodically to reach out to more Jewish people in this beautiful central Ukraine city.
Thank for prayers for peace and that the opposers of the Ukrainian nation would back away and allow people groups to live in freedom without the constant pressure of a full invasion. There is not outright panic in Kyiv, but rather vigilant preparation for the potential of greater conflict country wide instead of just the Eastern part of Ukraine. Please pray for revival among Jewish Messianic congregations and especially all evangelical churches to come closer to the LORD in prayer and unity.
Pray for my planned return trip to Ukraine in early March to assist many elderly Jewish people in need. It was necessary for me to return to the States for a few weeks to do closing 2021 accounting and conduct a scheduled annual Messiah's Compassion board meeting. Pray for wisdom, divine protection, provision and a way to enter into ISRAEL during 2022 to serve more Jewish people there too.
