The representatives of Andrey Artemenko Foundation and SRF members met military chaplain when delivering charitable goods to ATO area
In the barracks of “Lugansk – 1″ battalion in Severodonetsk, volunteers met with military chaplain Father Alexander and saw where he holds service.
Father Alexander truly believes that faith is very important for the soldiers as it gives them invincible encouragement and support.
In particular, faith is essential for those who have lost everything in the occupied territories – money, professional and life plans, and some of them have lost even more – family, relatives and friends.
It would seem that there are no prospects for the future… But don’t forget, as long as you have faith nothing is lost!
Things can change and people have to accept the changes with responsibility and inspiration to life, and faith will follow.
This and much more we learned from Chaplain – an Orthodox priest, who meanwhile was sanctifying Ukrainian Easter bread called “paska” for battalion’s commander.
Father Alexander told volunteers that in difficult times people should look for something that makes them human and help each other. Despite the difference in denominations, language or place of birth.
I will be grateful to those who can help me with church utensils and accessories. As you can see from the photo, we have done much by ourselves using any available material, such as zinc for cartridges. Those who are willing to help can deliver goods through the volunteers of NGO “Solidarity of Right Forces,” having contacted me beforehand by phone 099 793 8001,” said Father Alexander.
There’s Faith in Wartime.
The faith in the victory of Light and Goodness.
