LIFE Centers
MISSION UPDATE

Currently, Ukraine is embroiled in political turmoil that has at times turned violent. Jim McCann reports, "The LIFE Centers and the children are safe, and we are filled with God's perfect peace, which passes all understanding!

"The Lord reminded us of a promise He has given us over the years, and it really fits this situation: 'Do not think like everyone else does. Do not be afraid that some plan conceived behind closed doors will be the end of you. Do not fear anything except the Lord almight. He alone is the Holy One. If you hear Him, you need fear nothing else. He will keep you safe . . .'"

The Ukraine LIFE Center "River House" is a bright light in the spiritual darkness in the mountainous region near Turka. A fire last fall severely damaged the LIFE Center, threatening to take a huge toll on our ministry outreach in the region.

The third floor was destroyed by fire, and the second floor was severely damaged by the water used to put out the fire. Thankfully none of the children were hurt, and today we can share how God has turned this tragedy into triumph!

We're excited to report the reconstructed LIFE Center is BIGGER and BETTER. The Life Center now has double the rooms, double the ministry and we expect a double portion of blessing to flow out of this ministry.

"The house is now four stories, rather than three, which also includes a new, large meeting room for ministry and youth services and food, clothes and Bible distribution," Jim said.

"We will be able to accommodate more children receiving prevention ministry in the area of human trafficking, as well as our ability to give children a home – even on a temporary basis as the government allows," Jim added.

Thank you, because you care, we are now empowered even more to reach out to, rescue and restore those trapped in the bondage of human trafficking. We can provide a brighter future filled with hope and promise.
