Latest Update on the Ukraine Refugee Crisis from BTJ Poland
BTJ Poland is in the process of setting up a database incorporating many ministries, Operation Poland, and the house church networks.
BTJ is coordinating together with other ministries, so that the needs of the refugees can be seen clearly. There is a massive amount of information coming from Ukraine, but unfortunately, social media is unreliable and is influenced by Russian propaganda. Currently, there is so much information coming out of Ukraine that we needed to take a step back. We are making sure that the news we are receiving is accurate and up to date.
Although there has been some hate speech, the majority of the Polish population is standing behind the Ukrainians and against Putin. Many ministries are trying to determine the truth of the events happening in the Ukraine – they are waiting for reliable information before they act.
BTJ is collecting information about where people can be hosted, who can provide food and supplies. We know these are dark times when the most needed items for churches are ballistic vests and Kevlar helmets. The EU just signed a deal on the 27th to send 100 Billion euros of military equipment to Ukraine.
Because we have coordinated information between the churches, we are able to see how many wives and children have been sent to Poland and we now know that we are going to be receiving many more refugees. This means that our next step will be intercepting Christians on the border who are fleeing from Ukraine. Poland is doing a fantastic job at making sure that the refugees are provided for, so they do not starve or freeze to death. We will have plenty of Ukrainian families joining the house churches, mostly believing women and children.
Pray that Russia will not be effective with their cyberattacks, turning the populace against the Ukrainian people; for if Ukraine falls, Poland is next.
Praying for all
