Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Response to the Ukraine Refugee crisis
This page will provide a number of links to videos and posts about the response of Nazarene Compassionate Ministries to the flow of refugees across the Ukrainian borders into other Eastern European countries.
The first video begins with Joel Tooley, a Nazarene pastor from Florida talking to Jay Sunberg. Joel has taken a small team to work with Jay and Tenna Sunberg in the Polish - Ukrainian border area in providing assistance to refugees crossing into Poland. The Sunberg's are Nazarene missionaries who have worked in the region for a number of years.
Here are two more videos from the Sunbergs:

We have received an update report from Trino Jara Gonzalez with this note:
"Dear family; as we continue to pray for peace and also responding to the needs of our family and the communities in Ukraine. I want to share our latest report with the hope that you will continue to join us in intercessory prayer.
Please don't forget to pray for the young men who are being called up for the army, especially our young men.
I would also like to ask you to pray for Armenia. Here too we need the divine intervention of our God to protect this nation and its people. Pray for Christ to truly be the center of this country and its people who profess to be Christians. People need to experience his love and forgiveness.
Thank you very much,
