Hearts for Ukraine Missions Fund enables our area missionaries to care for workers in the region, develop partnerships with local leaders, and bring the gospel to unreached people and orphanages of Ukraine. Hearts for Ukraine Missions Fund is independently funded by tax-deductible individual and church donations, and 100 percent goes to the field. As a result, we are able to develop a network of churches to help support the needs of the children. So when someone comes to Jesus, they also have a church in which to grow.  

  

Your support will make d difference give now 

 
 Go
Hearts for Ukraine travels to Ukraine, Kenya and other parts of the world, to meet with local pastors, churches and organizations that have been providing physical and spiritual support to orphans, elderly, and war refugees. Our goal is to encourage these wonderful people and to support them financially as they reach out to those in needs in their local regions.
 
As always, our mission is to preach the Gospel and to pray for the nation of Ukraine and others. Over the last 13 years, we have been limited to part-time ministry in Ukraine, usually making just two trips per year. That is why we encourage and support those in ministry in Ukraine. People depend on the local church to support them with their day-to-day needs, spiritually and often with financial needs (food, clothing, schooling, fuel, etc).
This time we’re we are taking a step of faith believing in a vision to financially bless those individuals, churches and organizations who are working daily in service to orphans, families, refugees and the elderly. We will also visit orphanages in western and eastern Ukraine.
 
 

UKRAINE Prayer Points

Alfred’s Trip – November 28 – December 7, 2021

 

Purpose & Goals

I’m very excited to announce another mission to Ukraine! God gave me clear direction through a dream and words of knowledge, and he gave my wife the date I should leave! And one day while coming downstairs and seeing a pile of change, I noticed there was a Ukrainian coin there. At that moment, I was so moved by Holy Spirit! God gave me a longing to go back to Ukraine. This was my clear call to action, if the other revelations weren’t enough! I leave on November 28, and return on Dec 7, 2021. The Lord has put Western Ukraine on my heart again. I’ll be going to Ternopol and Zhitomir regions to once again, preach the Gospel in orphanages and churches. I will be hosted by a few of my friends who dedicate their lives to helping children and families with their physical and spiritual needs. We’ll visit 3 – 4 orphanages, 2 churches, touching lives young and old and praying for the nation. 

Whenever we visit an orphanage, we not only pray for the children and teach them about God’s love for them, we also bring gifts to them like needed school supplies, staple foods, clothing, or medicine. We usually ask the director before we arrive what the greatest need is; then our ministry purchases the requested items and brings them to the orphanage. 

Obviously, there is a funding need for a trip like this: to buy gifts for the orphans, to travel there, for ground transportation, lodging and translation. If so moved to give, your donations will help buy the food and school supplies and other items they need. But more importantly, it helps me get there to the mission field where God has many wonderful plans for all to hear His Word and believe!

 

Prayer Points

  • Pray for travel, especially with Covid restrictions, that customs and other security checkpoints will allow Alfred through with no issues.  Pray that all paperwork and test results will be proper.
  • Pray for smooth in-country connections – train, bus & car rides.
  • Pray for guidance and wisdom from Holy Spirit.
  • Pray they reach the fund-raising goal of $1,900. This will pay for travel, including gas for drivers, translators, food & gifts for the orphans.
  • Pray for the orphans and the adults, that Holy Spirit will prepare their hearts and draw them to these meetings.
  • Pray that God will give Alfred the right messages at the right time; and there will be salvations, healing and deliverance!
