Experiencing War Bunkers

Today was another intense but good day. It was a day of maneuvering around soldiers, military equipment, and checkpoints; dodging explosions; doing distributions; and supplying a town with vital food and supplies, before it falls to the Russians.

It is fascinating how the towns appear to be ghost towns until people like us show up with food and supplies. The locals come out of their bomb shelters, get their food, and hurry back to the safety of their underground spaces again. Some of these people have been living for several months in these dark places. 

The Ukrainian people have been preparing for war for years already. Most houses are built with a bomb shelter or a root cellar specifically built to withstand bombs. Many of the schools also have large bomb shelters underneath that are available to be used by the people that don’t have any shelter at their houses.

Last week, we were having a church service in one of these underground bomb shelters when four bombs landed within a couple hundred yards. We never heard or felt the impact underground.

Pray for God to touch these lives and that we could bring His hope and light to all the dark places.
