from Essex

During our trip to Eastern Ukraine we met church leaders, young and old, who told us the story of the church’s struggle and we witnessed the work of the church in so many different facets: giving hope to the lost, food to the hungry, leadership to the young, comfort to the old, refuge to the forgotten. We experienced a wonderful, gentle and genuine sense of hospitality wherever we went. We witnessed the enduring strength of the local church, a wonderful sense of family, and couldn’t help but compare the education system to our own at home, as well as the medical and welfare facilities available. You don’t return from a trip like this unaffected in some way, and it’s not easy to define in what way, the sense of wanting to help never leaves you.
