Dear Friends and Supporters, 
Our friends in Ukraine and Russia are facing a critical situation. We'd like to ask for prayer for the thousands of Young Life staff, volunteers, kids and families in this region. See below for specific prayer requests, as well as how you can help support Ukraine in this time of need.

Prayer Requests

​• Pray for the safety of our leadership throughout Ukraine and Russia. Many are serving in harm’s way.

• Pray for the leaders as they keep centers and clubs open and kids busy and protected. Pray for the street kids and orphans caught up with sometimes violent political groups.

• Pray for the young men of Ukraine. There has been a military call-up of all men under 40 years of age. Anyone who receives notice is mandated to report for duty. Some of our staff have received notice and know they will be serving without uniforms, adequate weapons or military training.

• Pray for a spirit of unity and respect within Ukraine ​for the ethnic Ukrainians and ethnic Russians. There are multiple groups fighting for concerns which include political freedom and integrity, economic stability, and safety.

• Pray for peace throughout the Former Soviet Union.

Please view the below video to see interviews of our leaders. Hear them speak of their deep commitment to the kids of their countries and their dedication to showing them the unconditional love of Jesus. We are grateful for your support and prayers.
