Four young FEBC (Far East Broadcasting Company) volunteers, who were recently captured by pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine, were brutally beaten to death simply for being Christians.
Four young Christian workers were recently captured by pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine and brutally beaten to death. According to a ministry affiliate, they were killed simply for being Christians. “These young men were faithful Christians who cared about evangelising their countrymen by using personal witnessing, as well as media,” he reported. “We are deeply saddened and shocked.”
In addition to this horrific tragedy, a Christian broadcast tower in Slavyansk was shot down and completely destroyed. The tower, which was located in the midst of the fighting, had been off air. FEBC is still broadcasting in Western Ukraine, reaching millions, and is looking for a new location to resume broadcasting to the residents of Eastern Ukraine.
“We are doing everything we can to give hope to people in a seemingly hopeless situation,’ explains a FEBC representative. ‘But more than ever, we are desperate for your prayers and for God to move in the lives of the people of Ukraine. Please pray for those who continue to serve and risk their lives every day to see the Gospel go forth. Pray for peace in Russia and Ukraine.”
