Thanks for your letter and love. Thanks that you were in these unlucky days with us and with the children of Ukraine.
All Ukraine is now in mourning. Ukraine buried our young men who died for freedom.
One hundred young men are already in heaven. They were named the "Heavenly Hundred.” It is terrible to walk on the ground soaked with blood as I have done.
I tell the real facts. All the ground of the centre of Kiev is watered by blood with flowers the people have brought. I would not want this repeated again. People in the thousands have come to the Maidan to give honor to those who died there.
For three days in the centre of Kiev, there passed a prayer for everyone who was killed. Their bodies were brought to the Maidan for funeral. All of those who died trusted in the future. All of them wanted to live and to raise up children. Now they are in Heaven. They have received what they dreamed, I believe they are with God.
Now, there are still a thousand people in hospitals. Some lost hands, eyes, and feet. Many of them are on the verge of death. Some countries have started to receive wounded men to treat them and fit them for artificial limbs.
I would want that you knew among us here, there were no extremists during the peace protests. We did not have a weapon. We did not have tanks. In the governmental armies, they had everything, Yanukovych paid others to kill. These people were brought by buses and trains. They attacked peaceful, unarmed people across all Kiev. I live in the centre of Ukraine. I live in Kiev. I have never seen anything like that before. The government killed students, teachers, journalists, doctors, and women.
Today I write this letter as the message to all of you. We are one beautiful country.
As I write this letter, there are still collisions in areas where there were Yanukovych's followers. They do not want to release the country which they have robbed. They are afraid because they will need to pay for the death of hundreds of people and pay for those whom they tormented throughout all years of Yanukovych. Now Yanukovich is wanted, but he escaped. He will be found and brought to justice.
Please Pray for peace in our country. For no more killing. People on the Maidan will stay up until the presidential elections on May 25th to complete victory.
Our mission and church will help today to families which have suffered in this war.
We will help children which are near to us because Ukraine is almost bankrupt. Today the government has officially stopped paying money to workers and pensioners.
We will bring help to houses.
Your support is necessary to us. It is now very important for each child, each teenager of Ukraine.
1) I Ask pray for us and our ministry. That we with wisdom would spend on projects which now are especially necessary to children.
2) Tell to your friends about that has happening in our country.
3) In conditions of destroyed economy we want to spend more camps in the summer that children would receive strengthening of health. It is a lot of families this year cannot give rest or medical care to children. Members of our mission are ready to serve children. To be volunteers.
Thanks that we are one international family in Christ.
I have chosen to post this letter without the name of the person who sent it to me for fear of retaliation against them, their family, and their church.

This sort of danger appears to be cropping up everywhere. Do we have any reason to hope that we can escape it in the USA? Thank the Lord, we can rest assured that walking in the center of God's will is the most secure place we can be. And, we have the hope of His one day making all things new. I'm sharing this with a group on facebook. Thank you for posting!
