Thank you to everyone who donated luggage that will be used to take medical and other items needed for humanitarian aid to those in Ukraine. The Ukrainian church has individuals who will transport the supplies on LOT Polish Airlines which is allowing up to ten bags to be checked at no charge by people with a Ukrainian passport flying into Poland. The luggage will remain in Ukraine.
We currently have enough luggage to make several trips. We will let you know when more donated luggage is needed.
Lutheran Church Charities also presented Archpriest Mykhailo Kuzma with donations received to help the efforts back in Ukraine as there are still many needs. A trip to Ukraine will take place this week with the medical and other items needed.

SELCU Pastors Serving Ukrainians
Sergey Bevz (SELCU pastor)
"Trips to places with the greatest need are trips to front-line villages. It's always exciting. We ask the Lord for wisdom, safety, and guidance. And it is with His leadership that miles of roads, food distribution, and the preaching of the Gospel is what gives hope! I think this is what the Lord is calling His Church to do today - to serve the people. Thank You, Lord, for all the blessings."

Financial Assistance Still Needed for Ukrainian Lutheran Pastor Diagnosed with Lung Cancer
One of the pastors of the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches in Ukraine (SELCU) was diagnosed with lung cancer. Surgery removed 1/3 of the right lung. It will be a long road to recovery. Medical health coverage in Ukraine will not even begin to cover the expected costs of the treatments.
Lutheran Church Charities is making a direct appeal on behalf of this SELCU Lutheran pastor and his family in an attempt to raise $5,000 for ongoing medical treatments and to provide support for the family.
CLICK HERE to read the original appeal.
This pastor has provided leadership to the SELCU for many years and has been doing so since the beginning of the Russian invasion. If you are so moved, please donate to help this pastor and his family during his recovery.
