Hello family and friends,
Yesterday was a busy and emotional day. For me, the numbness continues, as my mind tries to process so much information.
Our daughter was ready to begin the process of exodus with her children. When she could no longer wait around the house, doing nothing, she went to the street to explode with emotion. As she walked around, calming down, God spoke to her (the hairdresser). He said, “Olya, your weapons are your scissors and comb. Serve the soldiers.”
Today she had many requests. As her husband drove her to the first location, they were stopped my the local military. The city had been locked down. Even so, She now understands her purpose in life. She has here home salon, and does home visits for hair care. She will share her talents with those in need, unable to afford, or now for the soldiers who protect our country.
On the map, you can see the MUCH locations in yellow. Most locations are not able to operate because of the invasion. Here is a rundown of what we understand.
Alyona, from our Christmas fundraiser, delivered her baby the other day. Both mother and baby are doing well.
The boys from one orphanage has relocated all of the children. Orphans from another orphanage and children from transition home stay in their facility, they are in safe. When it need children stay in underground place. So, our children in safety.
One of our massage therapists continues to treat two children with great needs.
As for Sveta and I, there is a shock, a numbness. We find our strength in the Power of Jesus Christ Who lives within us.
Thank you for your prayers!
Blessings of love and healing,
Mark and Sveta
