Andrey and his invalid wife Emilia* were unable to flee when fighting came to their Ukrainian village. Ugly sores caused by diabetes left Emilia unable to walk. Andrey refused to leave her side, insisting to stay and care for his suffering wife.
The elderly couple’s village received widespread damage from bombing and gunfire. Some of their windows were damaged by shrapnel, but their house is still intact. They said, “God has blessed us so much. We prayed, and God kept us safe.”
When CAM contacts brought a food parcel, Andrey and Emilia thanked them and urged them to keep the faith. They wept as the believers sang and prayed for them.
