Christ’s Hands and Feet:
Baptists Minister to Ukrainian Refugees
As one Baptist family united in Christ, we bear witness to the biblical truth that “if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it.” So how do we respond in the face of suffering? We grieve. We pray. We act.
In response to rising tensions along the Ukrainian and Russian border early in the year, the Baptist World Alliance immediately initiated solidarity and advocacy efforts. In February, the BWA hosted Igor Bandura, Vice President of the All-Ukrainian Union of Associations of Evangelical Christians-Baptists and a BWA General Council Member, at the ministry headquarters in Falls Church, VA, USA. BWA General Secretary Elijah Brown also joined Bandura in a series of key meetings and roundtables hosted in Washington D.C. on February 10 that brought together representatives from human rights and religious freedom organizations in the United States.
