In 2013, things were progressing on schedule for the ministry in Lugansk, Ukraine.
They had a medical office in a great location in the city. They were getting ready to purchase furniture and some more medical equipment to help move their facility forward and assist in spreading the Good News of Jesus through medical missions.
Then, in 2014, disappointment struck as war broke out between Ukraine and Russia and their office was taken from them.
Mission organizations that were stationed in Lugansk fled and it appeared like the Gospel would not spread until things changed.
Fast-forward to 2016 and we’re starting to see opportunities for Gospel advancement.
