Stay up to date on all our missionaries in Ukraine:
Josh & Nicole Baldonado
Josh and Nicole have been serving in L’viv over seven years. After the invasion of Ukraine on February 24, they took their three kids to safety in Poland. They are serving together with Nicole’s mom, Michelle Pratt, near the Polish-Ukrainian borders. More than 1.8 million Ukrainians have fled to Poland. Josh, Nicole and Michelle are driving refugees from the borders further into Poland, helping find housing, and meeting physical needs as people first enter the country. They are partnering with local Polish groups and connecting with European groups that might provide longer term arrangements for refugees. They are also working on humanitarian aid going into Ukraine.
Ben & Lena Morrison
Benjamin, Lena and their kids are in Svitlovodsk in central Ukraine where Benjamin is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk. They are serving the many refugees traveling through their city from the east to locations further west. This includes feeding them, getting them clothing and medicines they are lacking, providing housing and, of course, sharing the hope in Christ that overcomes all enemies. Additionally, we are coordinating with and providing humanitarian aid and evacuation from hot points further east. You can donate to help us serve the people of Ukraine with the link below.
Aaron & Dara Markey
ON BEHALF OF THE MARKEYS
We have four main fronts we are finding currently that are impacting the greatest needs via the front lines.
1. We have a pipeline of aid coming in through our warehouse from Poland bringing supplies daily (so we use funds daily to supply the warehouse; get driver ; and keep things moving)
1.b we are also helping get protective equipment to our guys on the front lines; vests; helmets; communication equipment; power generators; etc
2. Evacuations; we are helping provide resources and aid to teams on the front lines providing shelter and vehicles for extractions.
3. We have a team helping people resettle from the border into Europe. Whether helping people short term or longer term we have developed a network of churches connecting Ukrainians who are seeking refuge through Europe.
4. We are also helping develop support for the Ministry Team of the Markey family and the Ukrainians here running the operations.
Any funds that come in through CalvarySD [and Horizon Indy] are coming right to here. Also if you or your church are interested in helping with a particular area of ministry we can help you direct your funds to that part of our ministry as well as some churches have a particular area they would like to help with.
Aaron Markey, George Markey – finances, funding the areas needed (buying vehicles, supplies, fuel)
David Markey, Paul Billings – supply line, vehicles, Poland, evacuation
Jon & Stephanie Markey
Currently in Hungary. Focusing on displaced Ukrainians both in Ukraine and in Europe. One way we are doing this is by organising worship and prayer events in various cities in Hungary, Poland, Romania and other hotspots that are also designed to create a space for Ukrainians to share their stories, grieve, encourage one another and connect. Also staying connected to my hope church in Ternopil, Ukraine. Helping in whatever way I can to meet their needs as they continue to serve refugees and provide aid for those need.
Nate & Diana Medlong
Nate and Diana Medlong, along with their kids Natasha, Veronica, Eddie, and Cassie were awokened when Russia started to bomb their city of Kharkiv, Ukraine. They made their way over a 72 hour trek, first Hungary, then on to the USA.
Currently they are located in Cleveland, Ohio, but working to raise awareness, and funds for the humanitarian effort in Ukraine. They are also helping to coordinate support for their church members from Kharkiv and the teachers and families from Diana’s private Christian school, many of them still located in the war zone.
David & Katya Snead
Katya, her family, and I are serving on two fronts: 1. Serving refugees alongside local ministries in both Poland and the Czech Republic, and 2. Organizing logistics and humanitarian aid for people within Ukraine. Please pray for our little team of five adults, two dogs, and one cat. 🙂
