On the 24th of February 2022, Russia launched a military invasion of Ukraine. There seems to have been a buildup of events that led to this military action. Many have called for the use of military force against Russia and accountability for the war crimes committed. However, BTJ Poland has been seeking to feed both the physical and spiritual needs of the Ukrainians; Bibles, not Bombs. Currently, our team have been able to hand Bibles out to Ukrainian soldiers, but also distributed 20,000 Bibles to the Ukrainian people.
Here are two testimonies from the Ukrainian New Testament distribution:
“Thank you for the New Testaments. They are a great blessing to us and, I believe, to the people to whom we witness. Right now, we often help refugees and witness to them about Jesus Christ. We thank God that, in addition to food, we can give them a New Testament.” (Oleg, the village of Bogorodchany, Ivano-Frankivsk region).
“Today we visited two villages in the Chernihiv region, where food kits were distributed. We also told people about Christ. After that, everyone who wanted one, received a New Testament. 50 people desired to take it. Thank you very much for the Word of God.” (Oleg, the village Voronkiv, Kyiv region).
