Luda is very sweet. Sitting at Mission to Ukraine’s reception, she is all smiles when visitors or guests enter the building.
Day after day she routes phone calls, helps visitors, answers questions… Even when things are hectic or crowded at reception, Luda keeps her cool.
She always seems to be in control.
So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that her life was once anything but…
One of Many
Luda, as it turns out, is one of the many mothers who have been counseled by Mission to Ukraine’s crisis pregnancy ministry.
As a scared, pregnant 15 year-old, she chose not to abort her baby, even though everyone around her told her that she should.
MTU walked beside her, gave her and the baby food, clothing and medical care for 18 months, and placed her in Bible study support groups with other mothers.
As you may have seen in Brad’s latest article, her story is one of many success stories here at MTU. Stories of love and hope overcoming fear…
Recently I sat down with Luda to capture her story on video for Mission to Ukraine. Here is what she had to say…
- If you haven’t read it already, I’d encourage you to check out Brad’s latest article. He handles the topic of abortion really well.
- Head over to MTU’s website to learn more about their crisis pregnancy ministry.
- Consider giving financially to support the work of Mission to Ukraine. They are making a MASSIVE impact for the kingdom of God here in Zhytomyr.
- Pray for the many young women like Luda who are pregnant, alone and scared. For those in Zhytomyr, pray that they would find their way to Mission to Ukraine!
