The Reformed Deacon
Church Life and Ministry During War
Show Notes

In this episode, we present the audio from the outstanding video produced by Mission to the World (PCA), of OPC Missionary to Ukraine, Heero Hacquebord. In case you missed it or were unable to take the time to watch the video, this episode may be a great way for you to hear about the work that our missionary is doing in Ukraine during the war. 

Imagine an OPC Missionary with 100s and 1000s of people coming into contact with the church community as war causes them to relocate, find help, and search for answers to life’s most important questions. You don’t have to imagine it. This is OPC missionary Heero Hacquebord’s world and ministry right now in Ukraine.

God is working in Ukraine through this tragedy of war. Heero reminds us, "God is in control. God will take care of us. Our strength and our hope is not in horses and armies."

This winter, the OPC had the unique privilege to participate in, "Crates for Ukraine",  a program led by MTW (PCA). To date, 47 OP Churches in 16 presbyteries  have pledged to pack over 200 crates of humanitarian aid to be sent to Ukraine.

For updates on the "Crates for Ukraine" program, go to OPCDisasterResponse.org. If you would like to watch the video version of the Ukraine video, please visit our Vimeo Channel.
