October 2022 Update

Dear Rachel and Gordon and Helen and the team at Heartcry for Change. We just want to send you a small update with our latest news.

We are thankful for your support and prayers throughout this turbulent time. I hope you understand how much of a difference your support has made in the lives of so many as we, at the beginning of this year, received thousands of refugees. With your help, we were able to send them on (to other countries), also to UK. THANK YOU. On my trip to Denmark I met some of the young people now being trained in the bible school (in Denmark)…We also still have refugees staying with us and are concentrating on getting as much help into Ukraine before the winter.

We have focused on 3 main regions:

  1. We support a Church in Vinnitsa who take in thousands of stranded refugees when fleeing the occupied territories like Kherson, Mariopol and the Dumbas region.
  2. We help the churches in the bombed areas in Kharkov, many of whom are living without heating or water.
  3. We help a base in Zakapatia region in a church we helped to plant who also host more than 200 refugees now for the 8th month.

In Moldova people are, like in the rest of Europe, feeling the pain of the huge rise in living costs and we thank God we can reach out and help and support as much as possible. We also see good and beautiful things. We thank God for the church that is growing and a nice teen and kids work that is now being led by young people who themselves came to church as children. The building of the church is also nearly completed and we are so grateful finally not to do church services on a building site with no heating but in a wonderful space with a small coffee place and inviting surroundings. You contributed to this. Thank you!

We had a wonderful camp time in August. We are so grateful for this ministry and had more than 700 attendees – children, teens and families . The camps were also led by our own young people and to see how they have grown and developed into leaders is such a reward. More than 50 young volunteers gave up 2 full weeks to reach out to 240 kids and then 230 teens. We saw so many lives touched by God’s love and also many committing their lives into His hands. At the teen camp we had a prayer tent that served for intercession and prayer for the youngsters. On Friday we had kids queuing for prayer non-stop for 6 hours, such was the presence of God! We are thankful!

The Girls’ Academy is such a place of refuge and restoration. We are so proud of Catja who we found begging for food on the market place as a 10 year-old, now a proud student at a culinary school. For Luminitsa who was dropped at a roadside by her drunken parents and is now finishing an education in sales.

For Christina who rang us up sobbing, begging us to take her in after having run away from a state owned institution; she has now gone to study law in Chisinau State University. We are so proud of Alexandra who is an artist, an entrepreneur and devoted Christian. For Masha whose mother left her alone for days locked up in a cold room without food or care, now healing from her traumas and a bundle of laughter and always willing to help and support others. She begged our church and pastor to go with her to the pool this summer (to get baptised): “I want to make a covenant with Jesus who saved me”, she said.  So pray for us and all the other young women in our care. Young lives whom God is giving purpose and a future to.

We know that dark clouds seem to gather out there on the horizon but our banner is God’s faithfulness and care and we have been encouraging each other with the verse from Phillipians 4:19: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.” This is also our greeting to each one of you, may God bless you all in abundance.

With love,
Charlotte and Johannes.

June 2022 Update

Our partners, Charlotte and Johannes, were able to take a much-needed break from the frontline and go home to Denmark (DK) to visit their family, including their sons, and some friends. Inevitably their pastoral work did not cease though…they were quick to locate Ukrainian refugees who had made it to Denmark and offer them support and practical help in navigating a new and unfamiliar landscape! Charlotte and Johannes are now back in Moldova and have just sent us this report:

Charlotte writes:

I cannot express how much your prayers have been keeping us going. We really feel the support and protection over the work and over our lives. We just shared an afternoon with our friends coming over from Ukraine and hear both heart-breaking accounts and not encouraging news- But also stories of God’s help and miracles in this dark time. 

Just before leaving for DK we sat in an office with pastors from Kherson who, as we spoke, got a message of how the last group from his town had escaped the occupied territory. There had been more than 30 sitting in a cellar for weeks, afraid to go out. For the last period they only had a pint of water and some biscuits that they carefully shared and passed around. The water and biscuits never dried out!!

Three sisters walked out of a besieged town in the early morning hours. Walking for days, they kept singing worship silently, trying to avoid the roads and the Russian army road blocks. After days they finally reached the Ukrainian side and walked towards the post with their hands in the air. The soldiers greeted them and told them they were safe and could take off their white armbands. “We watched you from afar, and realised you were civilians…. but where is the 4th man who was walking with you, a tall guy we saw walking beside you 3 girls?”

While we were in Denmark our team travelled in to visit and bring support and help to the pastors and churches in Ukraine. People are right now fleeing the Donbas region, but mostly to other parts in the Ukraine. We see churches packed and God’s people working without end to provide help. But we also see pastors and workers being worn out and tired, so being able to do what we do is a great privilege. Johannes is preparing another trip next week. 

Stories of God’s intervention and divine help come from many of our brothers and sister who escape the Russian occupation. We are of course concerned that the army is giving up inch after inch of territory and can see on the map how it is creeping up towards Transnistria near the Moldovan border. All our staff and young women have now applied for passports but we pray we shall not see it come to this. 

We will also have the (kids) camps in August. After a break of two years due to the Covid-19 situation kids and youth are excited that we will be able to do the camps. We know this is going to be an extra effort but it is a very good time as well where we see how many young lives are reached with the gospel.

We see it is important to come back to a “normal ” life in the churches as people in Moldova also need to be ministered to and cared for.  At the end of June we have a big Youth event and hope to see hundreds of young people being inspired to follow Jesus. 

We send you all so many greetings from churches in Ukraine who have been overwhelmed by the support you have provided. I hope you realise many would not be able to do what they do without the huge help we received from Heartcry for Change. You have indeed made a difference in many, many lives.  Tonnes of food and supplies have been delivered to the front and help to buy gas to keep busses driving and evacuating (people) and the list goes on…  One of the churches we planted has been hosting 120 people since the beginning of the war and it is definitely support from you that made that possible. May God bless you.

As Charlotte describes, there continue to be so many opportunities to make a big difference on a daily basis and we are committed to both the immediate relief work in Ukraine as well as the long-term work in Moldova.  Please do pray especially for the youth and kids camps in Moldova this summer. In the midst of so much turmoil, we believe that lives will be radically transformed.  

What an incredible privilege to partner with a miracle-working God and His army of angels who are active in the toughest situations!

14 May 2022 Update

Our dear friends and partners,

I know it is a little while since we gave you an update but we have still been busy caring, loving and supporting those affected by this Ukraine crisis. Dear Charlotte and Johannes have just taken a break in Denmark to recover and rest a little before they plan the next phase of help and support that is needed. The situation on the ground is changing rapidly almost every day. We are sending regular humanitarian aid, medical supplies and food into Ukraine and supporting about 4,000 displaced people staying in churches in the western area of Ukraine. Reaching them by road has become more complicated due to the constant shelling even in the western areas of Ukraine and the uncertain condition of the bridges and infrastructure, but we are so blessed by the drivers and people who constantly risk their lives to help. Please do pray for Johannes and the teams. Here is the most recent text from Charlotte:

Thank you, Rachel. Johannes has just arrived back safe from a trip to Ukraine, bringing help to the ones caring for people in Kharkow hiding in the Metro. Pray also for safe passage for 88 very ill people trying to escape Mariopol. Our brothers negotiating for a corridor. Also we were able to bring help in form of sleeping bags and cans and instant food through the capelans.  We are standing in prayer for Moldova knowing that Russia has its plans, but God is in control. We will be sending 23 people to UK. Your contacts were very useful. Thank you. I will go to Denmark the 6 of May and will fly from Chisinau.  I shall write you an update with pictures shortly, we send you hugs and warm greetings to you all.

We have also been able to welcome our first Ukrainians with their visas into the UK. A family in Woodstock has been able to open their home to a young Ukrainian 22year old and as Heartcry we were able to pay for the travel expenses and will be working to help connect her into our local community.

We are also in contact with our MP and local diocesan Bishops and have been enlisting their help with the following areas too. We are raising awareness, helping on the frontlines and assisting in putting help and structure into our assistance here in the UK. Here are some of the arenas we have been influencing.

A second wave of refugees 
As you will appreciate, with the Russian military attacks in Ukraine increasingly moving east and south, especially focusing around the Odesa, Kherson and Mariupol regions, Moldova is bracing for a second wave of refugees.  Our partners on the ground have intensified their rescue missions into Ukraine as they report that shelling is increasing daily and those left in these areas are now in critical danger.  Those who make it out are traumatised and often in need of medical treatment not just shelter and food. It would be helpful to raise awareness of the need for specialist medical aid in this region along with protective equipment such as Kevlar vests and helmets for aid workers and ambulance crews who are undertaking dangerous rescue missions.

Trafficking
We are acutely aware from first-hand experience that the refugee crisis is tragically creating huge opportunities for human trafficking. Our own partners in Moldova were recently sending two buses of refugees (mothers and children) to safe locations in Italy and took every precaution to ensure their safe transport. We used a reputable bus company that they personally had good previous experience of.  On this occasion one of the team was traveling with the group and overheard the bus driver speaking on the phone to his trafficking gang. Our team member then discovered that the company bus driver had been replaced by a driver linked to the people traffickers. This driver was now hijacking the bus to arrange the sale of the people. Our team member was able to contact the police via her phone as she had the contacts.  On this occasion everyone involved was safe but this is so often not the outcome. With large numbers of refugees being moved through Europe, and now increasingly to the UK, security checks on those bringing groups of refugees into the UK is vital so that these trafficking corridors can be exposed. We share some of the frustration of the slow processing of visa applications but we would balance this with an appeal for a very real caution that security checks are not abandoned in the desire to speed up processing.  Unfortunately, as featured recently in the BBC 2 programme “Sold: Sex Slaves Next Door”, the Romania – UK trafficking corridor is already well established and, in our experience, often starts in Moldova as well.

Homes for Ukraine scheme – community welcome centres
As many UK families generously welcome Ukrainian refugees into their homes, we are aware that host families are not always equipped to advise their guests on next steps for accessing services in the UK.  We are exploring whether it might be possible to coordinate at local council level the provision of “community welcome centres” as a kind of “one stop shop” where new arrivals can meet together (giving them a vital sense of community with other Ukrainians) and helping host families to find a coordinated provision of support for their guests including:

  • Citizens Advice for refugees to obtain help with applying for benefits, advice on applying for jobs, housing etc
  • English as a foreign language classes
  • Information about schools, access to medical facilities etc
  • Psychological and spiritual support – many will have fled traumatic situations, possibly leaving loved ones behind or having lost loved ones without the opportunity for a burial/funeral. It may be helpful to mobilise local churches and faith groups to offer bereavement services and support.

While all of these services can be accessed individually one by one, we wondered if there is any scope for a more coordinated local authority/council approach where refugees can access all relevant information in one place and are actively pursuing this in our own local area through contacts with church and community leaders.

Businesses sponsoring welcome packs/grants
We are grateful for the support of companies which have match-funded donations given by their employees to help with the refugee relief efforts. We are now actively exploring if businesses in the UK might sponsor refugee “welcome packs” including for example SIM cards with free calls to Ukraine/Europe, shopping vouchers to purchase essentials (clothing, footwear etc), transport companies to offer a free travel pass for the first 6 months (as is happening in many European nations) as a way of helping refugees arriving in the UK.  There is a huge amount of generosity and goodwill with so many collecting clothes etc but arriving refugees may well simply need money, a “welcome grant”, to help them feel empowered to begin a new life and purchase what they need.

Thank you so much for your generosity, interest and support. We are thinking, planning and working with many organisations trying to create a healthy environment of well-being and welcome for these dear people who have been so traumatised.

I hope this gives you a better idea of some of the work we are doing behind the scenes. We will post recent pictures to our Facebook page once we receive them.

Thank you so much for what you have done to help us all make a difference!
Every blessing,
Rachel and the Heartcry team

2 April 2022 Update

Thank you so much for all your support and generosity! You are amazing! 

I just wanted to write with an update about our work and your support for the Moldovan and Ukrainian refugee crisis. Charlotte and Johannes continue to assess the situation in Moldova and help us to position ourselves to help the most vulnerable, young and weak at this time. Your aid is directly entering the Ukraine and helping there, whilst also working in Moldova, helping at the point of urgent need. Johannes has been entering the Ukraine with aid and support, even at increased personal risk. Unfortunately, his vehicle was severely damaged after the last visit but Johannes is now safe and was not badly injured. Please continue to pray for these amazing people. 

We have been able to provide a further refugee facility, this one for 90 people. This is in addition to the food, clothing, medical assistance, document help and heating given to many others living in homes, churches and other facilities offering a safe place for the displaced Ukrainian people. Your generosity is helping in many ways. Thank you!!

Please do keep looking at our Facebook page for pictures and more personal updates of the work. 
As the war in Ukraine continues, our support and action plan is as follows: 

1. CRISIS CARE – We are helping those fleeing Ukraine with a programme of RESCUE at the border, REST and RECOVERY in homes and refuge centres in Moldova and then RELOCATION, helping families connect with their friends and family in other nations. 
At the moment the numbers crossing the border have declined from thousands to hundreds and we are managing to provide care for those who arrive at the border. About 390,000 people have entered Moldova. At the moment we are serving about 200-300 people a day. 
Many of the people arriving only speak Russian and are nervous of leaving Moldova and moving far from Ukraine and the possibility of returning back to their homes and men. 
Although some are looking for relocation in Europe and the UK, most at this time prefer to stay close in Moldova or Romania. Charlotte and Johannes have organised buses for some to relocate in Italy and Poland. Heartcry has registered as an organisation to sponsor Ukrainians to come to the UK but as yet no visas have been completed. We will keep updating and addressing this situation. We will link with other UK organisations rehoming Ukrainians in the UK and assist in helping them come to the UK if that is their choice. 

2. LONG TERM CARE – Unfortunately it does not look as if these precious Ukrainians will be able to return soon. Their hope was that they would only come for few days and, if necessary a few weeks, and then return home to their cities in Ukraine. However, as the trauma and shock begin to lift, they are realising that they will need more long-term help before they can return to their homes. We are at this time looking at the strategy of how to help them adjust to a new life away from their husbands, other male relatives and family while they wait to return home. Many who do not have family in Europe do not want to move far from Moldova and so we are now thinking strategically about how we can help provide for them in the long term. This could be up to 2 years before their homes and communities are rebuilt. To this end, Gordon will go and help Johannes in Moldova and plan with them the logistics needed to adjust from CRISIS care to a more LONG-TERM situation. 
We are forming a group of gifted people with the right expertise to help with this planning. If you have this type of logistical planning skill and gifting, and especially if you speak Russian or Ukrainian, you would be a GREAT HELP! Also if you are able to travel and help in a more long-term capacity, about 6 weeks or longer is helpful, please email us at ukraine@heartcry.co.uk .

3. REBUIDLING– When the time is right, we would also like to support these families to move back into their cities and homes. There will be a massive rebuilding programme. We hope to raise funds and teams to assist in this project too. We would love the churches to be able to rebuild their community centres and outreach centres. This of course is still some way off but we are starting to plan for this NEW DAY! Again, if you have expertise in low-cost building programmes or this type of logistical planning and gifting and especially if you speak Russian or Ukrainian – you would be a GREAT HELP! Please email us at ukraine@heartcry.co.uk
As Heartcry for Change we have been involved in the support and care of the churches and people in this nation of Moldova for over 12 years and so our investment is both this immediate crisis and the long-term well-being. We have felt the pain of Ukraine and it will be our joy to partner with these amazing resilient people and watch their weeping turn once again to laughter. 

Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. Is 58:12

Thank you so much for your love and support at each of these levels of crisis and rebuilding!!
We could not do this without you!
Rachel and the Heartcry team.

16 MARCH 2022 UPDATE

Thank you, everyone, for all your financial support and prayer.  Rachel has recorded a voice message with an update, answers to some of your questions and a couple of testimonies to encourage you…please CLICK HERE to listen. Also if you go to our Facebook page there are lots of pictures and stories!

We have also had the following update from Charlotte following her successful visit into the west-central part of Ukraine:

Charlotte writes: Thank you for everything you are doing on your side of the world for this crisis. For your incredible support and concern and for raising all these big amounts, that we use every day to reach out to all the hundreds passing our door. Because of you we can: Help many to reach their destination, relatives or find a more permanent shelter. We can provide food and beds for the many coming over the border with nowhere to go and we can be a comfort to relatives somewhere else in the world worried sick for their loved ones somewhere on the road. We (personally in our church) have more than 80 beds available every night and soup and showers, a hug and help with logistics to help people on their way…
My trip into Ukraine went well and I had good meetings with friends and contact was confirmed for sending help over the border.  I am in awe at our brothers and sisters working and reaching out day and night to all seeking help. Every church I entered was turned into a dorm and there were people all over…
I spoke with people having contact with brothers on the battlefield working as medics and they had an urgent cry for help. So I just send you a list. I know it’s highly specialized items and very specific but if you should have contacts please say.

If you have contacts with access to specialised medical items listed below, please contact us at office@heartcry.co.uk

List of request from front line medics in Ukraine 

  1. Hemostatic bandages for tamponade
  2. Occlusive dressings
  3. Schanz collar
  4. Insulin
  5. Drugs that lower blood sugar levels
  6. Preparations for hyper- and hypothyroidism
  7. Magnesium + B6
  8. Multivitamins

Also: 
a need for individual first-aid kits, 
a need for IFAK-type first aid kits, 
bulletproof vests for ambulance and medical evacuation
Kevlar and polyamide helmets -an acute shortage 

Next steps for Heartcry

  1. We are following the UK Government’s updates on the “Homes for Ukraine” scheme to see if Heartcry could become a sponsoring charity.  There are not yet enough details available from the official channels but we understand that in this first phase, potential UK host homes will be invited to personally sponsor a named individual or family in the Ukraine and help them apply for a visa.
  2. Heartcry is working informally to see if we can match potential families that Charlotte and Johannes know via their Ukrainian church contacts with Christian hosts in the UK.  If you might be able to offer accommodation, do let us know by emailing us at ukraine@heartcry.co.uk and give as much detail as you can about the type of help you can offer (number of individuals, rooms etc).  The UK Government requires an initial 6 months commitment so please bear this in mind. 
  3. We will continue to send financial support to the frontline where it is needed most.  If you would like to contribute or know of others who can, please give in one of the following ways:

February 2022:

“In the midst of uncertainty, there are many doors of opportunity!”
This was one of the words God gave us at Heartcry for 2022…it is so pertinent now!  Heartcry for Change is a prophetic voice with a compassionate heart and we are committed to support our partners on the ground in Moldova as they assist the relief effort at the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.

Heartcry for Change is privileged to partner with missionaries in Moldova to help some of the most vulnerable of Europe. Over this last week, the region has been rocked by war.  Moldova borders the Ukraine and is now on the frontline of receiving countless refugees – mainly women and children as the men are required to stay and fight for their nation.

Our partners, Charlotte & Johannes Peterson, were missionaries in Ukraine for over 25 years before moving to Moldova.  They work closely with pastors in the churches in Ukraine and are now coordinating efforts to help receive the people who are crossing the border into Moldova. Charlotte sent us this update yesterday:Many of those who left Ukraine in the first couple of days of this crisis had family or friends in Poland, Romania or elsewhere in Europe so they have only needed food and a bed for just a night or two on their way through to the EU.  But we are now preparing for the very desperate cases who have no other source of help and no family elsewhere.  If/when Putin’s forces take Kyiv and other major cities, then there will be greater desperation. The bombing of civilian neighbourhoods is intensifying so people are losing homes and becoming displaced…again a different level of need/desperation. We are preparing for this and will need to think long-term to help them rebuild their lives.We are also planning to look after the children of Ukrainian pastors where the pastors have courageously decided to stay in Ukraine to offer pastoral care to their people. Please pray for us. We need strategic wisdom. We want to reach the most vulnerable.

Please help Heartcry to support this relief effort!
