SELCU Pastors Serving Ukrainians
Working through LCC staff member for Ukraine relief Rev. Larry Myers, below is an update on the work of the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches in Ukraine (SELCU) pastors, thanking LCC donors for your financial support and prayers.
Sergiu Trifa (son of Rev. Sorin-Horia Trifa, Romania)
Sergiu Trifa, son of the Rev. Sorin-Horia Trifa of the Confessional Lutheran Church of Romania, continues to purchase and ship medical supplies to the pastors of the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches in Ukraine (SELCU). Since the war in Ukraine began, he has literally been in a non-stop mode on behalf of the people of Ukraine.
“I was able to complete one more pallet of food today! Now, as soon as I catch transport, it will go to Pastor Oleg! It took me and a helper four hours to put it together from scratch. Another transport left and already arrived! I am so happy it went so smoothly with the border procedures! All the Glory be to God!”
Oleksiy Navrotskyy (SELCU pastor)
SELCU Pastor Oleksiy Navrotskyy and colleagues delivered 100 boxes of food to his congregation’s community in Mikolaev. Fifty more boxes are prepared for delivery this week.
Valera Verba (SELCU pastor)
SELCU Pastor Valera Verba assists fellow pastors in delivering humanitarian relief in the Savran area outside Odessa.
Pastors Smokvin and Kostyuk (SELCU pastors)
SELCU Pastors Smokvin and Kostyuk lead an outdoor worship service in the Savran area outside Odessa.
Bishop Alexander Yurchenko (SELCU)
SELCU Bishop Alexander Yurchenko underwent exploratory lung surgery last week. His daughter reports:
“The operation is finished; transferred to Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The express test confirmed cancer. Now we wait for the histology, and the doctors will continue to figure out how to treat. Now time for surgery recovery. Keep the prayers coming!!! Thank you for supporting us.”
Christian brothers and sisters in North America join their Ukrainian brothers and sisters in praying for Bishop Yurchenko.
SELCU Van Fire
Even in the best of times, challenges occur. An electrical shortage caused a fire in one of the SELCU vans used to deliver humanitarian relief. Fortunately, no one was hurt, nor was the cargo damaged. They hope to find a good specialist who can repair the van for its continued use in serving God and people.
