Corona pandemic: Reaching out to the elderly in Ukraine and Armenia
Armenia, like other countries, is in lockdown. Factories and shops are closed, and police and soldiers are on the streets to ensure that people stay at home.
But, even in these tough circumstances, our ministry there is continuing and growing. New doors are opening for sharing God’s hope and love with those who desperately need it.
‘Right now, we are witnessing a huge hunger for God’s Word and a growing demand for Derek’s teaching on prayer and fasting, on spiritual warfare and salvation,” - says Vazgen, our DPM Armenia outreach director. “Our team is working very hard to meet these needs.”
“Please pray for us”, - he says, “as we prepare and send out daily messages from Derek Prince’s teaching to thousands of Christians in Armenia through our DPM Armenia app.”
Pray also for the whole team who are volunteering to take meals to the isolated elderly in Yerevan.
But they are not just delivering food. They are sharing the good news of Jesus to every elderly person they visit and giving them a free copy of The Exchange at the Cross.
Our DPM team in Ukraine is involved in a similar ministry. In partnership with local churches in Eastern Ukraine they are reaching out to older people who are alone are struggling financially. They are giving food boxes and are including a copy of a life-giving book by Derek Prince in each box.
The good news is they have distributed over 2.653 boxes this way. They are putting valuable Bible teaching about salvation, hope and grace into the hands of the elderly and they are praying for them.
But they want to do more. They want to continue to provide free food and pastoral care for the elderly who are struggling to survive in isolation and poverty.
Will you join forces with Vazgen and Vlad in taking food and messages of God’s love and hope to the elderly in Armenia and Ukraine?
