Dear Colleagues:

We continue to watch the unfolding Russian invasion of Ukraine with great alarm and deep concern for the Ukrainian people.  Our prayers are constant and urgent.

Many of you have asked about the ways to help the people of Ukraine and to support our United Methodist witness in Ukraine.  We have received word from Bishop Khegay that the best way to provide financial support is to contribute through the Global Ministries Advance for Eurasia and designate your gift for Ukrainian Assistance.  Following is a link to the Eurasia Advance information:

Further, Bishop Khegay strongly suggests not sending funds directly to individual pastors or congregations to best assist him and the Eurasia Area Office in their efforts to coordinate and direct partner support to address the most critical needs in the most strategic locations.  Bishop Khegay reports that our churches in Ukraine are using funds to help refugees and the poor impacted by the war.

Thank you for your unceasing prayers, generous contributions, and support for Bishop Khegay and our churches in Ukraine at this critical moment.

Grace and peace,

Bishop Bruce Ough
