Ukraine (MNN) — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was also a leading MNN story in 2014–more than 60 stories were written about it.

One of the stories featured President of Mission Eurasia Sergey Rakhuba who was in the war zone talking to church leaders about how to help. Rakhuba was able to hand out I Care Packs in Slavyansk. “I saw the Christian work in the midst of the crisis, and I’m so proud to see these young Christian leaders. They are getting the Gospel advanced through the crisis.”

Ukrainian soldiers retook Slavansk, allowing Good News Church to reopen. Rakhuba says half of those attending are new: people helped by the church. Worshipping with them was moving. “I could not hold my tears back, hearing that congregation of over 500 or 600 singing Hallelujah to God. They were praising God that He saved their lives.”
