Dear Friends and Supporters of the 'Ten Men' Project, 

But my God shall supply ALL your need...

“Greetings to all of our friends! I would like to express my gratitude to Ten Men and pastor Dale (Armstrong, APN International Director) for providing our ministry with a much needed vehicle...

Ephesians 4:16-20
“...ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17 Not because I desire
a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all,
and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which
were sent from you, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable,
wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

"I pray God's blessing over the Ten Men team, its mission and ministry!"

-Pastor Valeriy from the city of Zaporizhje, a faithful friend and ministry partner with the Ukraine Initiative and the 'Ten Men Project'

The Church Responds!

Every week a team from the church goes to Gulyai Pole and Orekhov towns, where they distribute food bags. It's a 220 mile journey. Every street in the town is being covered. Evacuations are offered to the locals, but sadly, not many people are willing to leave their homes to be evacuated to a safe location. There are a lot of unknowns in this for them and they are simply afraid. Although people refuse to leave their homes behind, they still require help and provision. The church is the only one who delivers food to these two towns! This is our mission - for such a time as this. We are very grateful to everyone who supports this ministry.
The Church is Growing!

According to many testimonies, there is a drastic turning of Ukrainians to the gospel. Churches are growing. People are no longer reluctant to hear the gospel, but respond openly as they witness the role the local church is playing in the lives of the people, region and country. People are no longer loyal to the Russian Orthodox church as they see how that church supports and encourages all the killings. On the other hand, the evangelical church is growing its influence and positive reputation because of all the work they do. The church is sharing people's burdens. People used to call the evangelical church in Ukraine a sect before the war. This is no longer the case.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16

The Church is Under Persecution

The word 'persecution' conjures up pictures in our imagination of stories from heroes of the faith like Corrie Ten Boom and Richard Wurmbrand. Ordinary people with extraordinary faith standing firm in the face of extreme deprivation, torture, and mental distress. 

All around the world, believers in Jesus Christ are under intense persecution. Ukraine is no exception. Reports of Russian aggression towards civilians and religious leaders are being published by the Institute for Religious Freedom (IRF).

Thank you again, for all you've done and are doing on behalf of your brothers and sisters in Christ in Ukraine.
