Finally, A Home To "Go Home To" At Last!

Welcome to my new kitchen!

By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

The miracle has happened. After praying and standing on God's eternal promises for 13 long years, it has happened. God has provided the miracle of a quality home for me to find rest and refuge in, and to share with Christian friends like Sylvia as well.

Unless you have been truly homeless for a substantial amount of time, you can never fully appreciate the value of  a home of your own. In 2001, I suffered the unexpected loss of not only a home, but also my only vehicle and all my possessions stored in that home as well. It was a nightmare tragedy that affected me deeply.

But it had it's spiritual benefits as well, causing me to reach up is despair to Almighty God for one miracle after another to sustain me through out those years of homelessness yet determined to remain in the fields of ministry God had called me to.
Ready to enjoy a wonderful dinner

I am deeply grateful for the unexpected kindness and generosity of the wonderful Christian gentleman over in the UK who reached out with compassion to me and my friend Sylvia as well. 

Concerned over our situation of facing the challenge of a winter in tents in northwestern Montana, he sought God for what to do, and finally felt led by the Holy Spirit to contribute funds for a trailer and truck to pull it as well.

This is exactly what I had been praying for for these past 13 years as I struggled to remain in journalism and Christian outreach, working out of whatever vehicle I had throughout the years. My "home" was whatever truck stop or WALMART parking lot that was close by. My bed was an inflatable mattress set up in the back of my vehicle, hunkered beneath a sleeping bag in cold nights.

There were many who felt sorry for me because of this. However, for the true Christian of faith and who loves adventure for Christ, I simply looked at my situation as allowed by God for my spiritual growth, designed to draw me closer to Him to meet my needs.
Welcome to my new living room

Also, nothing creates compassion in our hearts for others, more than suffering as they have suffered. It is impossible to fully comprehend what others are enduring and going through, until we have suffered as they have.

Although I have always had a tender heart of compassion, enduring many cold winters without a home taught me even more about compassion for others in crisis or need. In time of crisis, you encounter wonderful people at various times who truly care and give. 

Thank God for people of compassion, such as my readers who faithfully sent me support throughout the years! I could not have survived without them.

But in times of crisis and loss, you will also encounter people who are void of compassion and insensitive to your plight. These are those people who are in a position to give and to help, but whose hearts remain cold and hardened to the sufferings of others around them. Sadly, I have witnessed even some who consider themselves "Christians" who fall into this category.
Finally, a bedroom for me and my furry friends to stay warm in at night

This is tragic. We are called as Christians to walk in the love and compassion of Jesus Christ towards all who are perishing. We are command to love one another as Jesus loves us.

Without love, the Bible says we are nothing. The Bible declares that faith works through love. We are commanded to love each other as Christ loves us. 

Yet, many times I walked into a local church as I traveled, in need of Christian love and encouragement, and walked out without encountering that Biblically defined and commanded love for the brethren. Deep disappointment and sadness often followed. Other Christians I have discussed this with have frequently admitted countering the same thing in their local churches.

Happily, in this new home God has graciously provided, God's people will find love and compassion, prayer and Christian love and testimony...and a great meal to accompany all this as well!

Will share more later. How great it feels to get out of a tent after months, and get into a real home at last! Much thanks to you, my friend, in the UK! You are in our prayers continually. 

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

The Miracle of a Home At Last


By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

www.AmericanHolocaustComing.blogspot.com

Finally, my prayers of over ten years now have been gloriously answered. God has provided me with a real home to "go home" to at last!

Only those who have experienced the tragedy of losing a home unexpectedly can fully comprehend what I have experienced for the past 13 years. In 2001, I suffered the loss of my only home and vehicle through an unexpected tragedy.

During the time I was performing investigative journalism in Germany for 6 months, my precious mother experienced a terrible accident in which she fell from the top stair of our RV, almost severing her leg.

Without my knowledge or consent,  the RV and truck that belonged to my mother and I was sold out from under me. The people who encouraged her to do this also stole my personal possessions out of the RV and refused to return them after I returned  back to the USA from Germany, threatening to even call the police when I requested my possessions be returned. My mother was hospitalized at this time and too weak to do anything about this.


What a painful and tragic turn of events this proved to be for me. My precious mother instantly lost her independence and had to subsequently be admitted into a nursing home. And my only home and transportation, plus my possessions, gone forever without warning. I was homeless, abandoned and with no home to go home to now!

Oh, how the devil tried to come into that tragedy and to use it for my destruction! Through my tears and grief and rejection, the enemy would whisper, "how could God love you and allow this to happen? God doesn't t care about you! Turn back from following Jesus. Look how he failed you!"

And of course, everything the enemy whispers to us in the hour of crisis is a total lie from the pits of hell, literally.

But God' s Holy Spirit was even stronger in telling me that IF I would reach up out of this terrible pit the enemy had dug for my destruction, and take the hands of Jesus, that He would lift me up from this crisis and enable me to overcome these challenging circumstances.

And so through many tears and heartache, I chose instead to reach up to the One Who loved me with an everlasting love, and to trust in His powerful promises instead of sinking back into the pit of despair, faithlessness and destruction.

Throughout the many years since that life-changing crisis, I have witnessed the grace, power, and mercy of the Living God in providing for my needs continually, and helping me to move forward with His calling upon my life designed to touch the lives of many other people.

But the one thing that has eluded me is finding another truck and RV to replace the ones stolen from me. Because there simply is no regular financial provision in the fields of ministry God has called me to, including this journalism, but rather only sporadic and oftentimes infrequent support, I have been unable to afford  financially to replace them.

Instead, to continue full time in ministry I have been making each motor vehicle my home, and learning how to live by faith and the techniques of true survival under challenging circumstances, especially  through each winter since 2001.

Learning to sleep in an unheated car or van in the winter presents a challenge, but it is important for all God's people to learn how to survive under the most difficult of circumstances. Especially when we know what is soon coming to North America and the rest of the world in these end times.

Imagine my joy when a reader from the UK recently contacted me to declare that he wanted to supply a trailer for me and for Sylvia as well! I was overwhelmed by this act of kindness, and could not thank him enough for such compassion and sacrifice.

This miracle of housing came just in time in this region of America, where temperatures are already dipping into the low 40's and you can see your breath at night and early morning, and when some trees are already starting to lose their leaves. Montana experiences up to 10 months of winter climate, and the cold weather comes early here.

Sylvia and I have been rejoicing with great thanksgiving and praise to the Living God for His mercies. We also are eternally grateful to the kind person from the UK who was moved with compassion over our plight, and chose to respond with Scriptural mercy and concern for my situation.

May this generous soul be blessed forevermore with God's great mercies, even as the words of Jesus in the Bible promises: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."

I hope that all my readers will rejoice with me and thank God for His faithfulness to hear the cries of His elect in time of trouble and great need. Halleluia! All praise and glory be unto our Heavenly Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His unending goodness and mercies.

May He also hear YOUR cries in time of trouble, and answer you in the time of your deep distress, just as His eternal Word of promise assures us that He will, through Jesus Christ the faithful One.

Be blessed today! He will never fail those who put their trust in Him. Though the answer to your prayer seems delayed, He will fulfill the desires of your heart at last.

-Pamela Rae and Sylvia Lynn, thankful beyond measure for His tender mercies which are new every morning-

Another Amazing Miracle of Healing for Sylvia

Sylvia rejoicing at COWBOY CHURCH in Montana
"The PAIN is GONE at last!"

By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-


Finally, Sylvia's miracle that she trusted God for with all her heart is complete. All praise and glory to the Lord God the Almighty through Jesus Christ His wonderful Son! The tormenting abdominal and back pain that always accompanies pancreatic cancer in it's late stages due to pressure on nerves and organs is completely gone! 

As pancreatic cancer growth occurs, pressure occurs within on other organs, typically radiating to the back. Several months ago, Sylvia's CAT scan indicated stage four pancreatic cancer with only 3-6 months to live. 

I personally read the doctor's diagnosis, printed out following her CAT scan she had performed the very day I insisted that she go to the emergency room in the very hospital that saved my brother's life only a year ago in NC.

I can never forget the sad look on the doctor's face that day as he brought her the results of the CAT scan. "Unfortunately, I have ominous news..." he began as he looked at Sylvia. We both were devastated as he informed us of the results of the CAT scan and handed us the paperwork, and sincerely wished Sylvia the best as he then recommended an oncologist and finally left the room. 

Sylvia felt as if she had been handed the death sentence. I wanted to cry and cry. But I looked at her as the Spirit of God rose up inside me, and said that God's word of promise through Jesus Christ was greater than the word of any doctor, and Jesus had the power to override that death sentence, and heal her instead. From that moment on, we both were determined to fight this cancer with FAITH THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS.

Wonderful Christian friends organized a prayer meeting for Sylvia, and we all gathered that night at my friend's home in NC to come against that cancer and claim A MIRACLE for our beloved Sylvia.

A few weeks after, Sylvia went to another doctor who ordered a PET scan. He was excited as he reviewed the results, comparing it with the CAT scan disc she gave him from the previous test. "Something has definitely happened since your last test..." he said as he pointed out the PET scan results to her. He informed her that apparently now she did NOT still have the medical problems that the CAT scan clearly indicated previously.

Sylvia was elated by this wonderful news. God HAD answered prayer! But the painful symptoms related to pancreatic cancer remained, severe persistent abdominal pains radiating to her back. Hydrocodone was prescribed for the pain at that time.

But Sylvia was to learn the hard way that hydrocodone is a terrible painkiller due to side effects that affected her extremely adversely as time went on. She became miserable due to the side effects, and the pain was constantly recurring. But Sylvia and I never gave up as we believed God for a total healing miracle. We prayed without ceasing, standing on His eternal word of promise daily as she battled pain.

Unfortunately, this recurring pain and the side effects lasted throughout our prayer journey across America. She tried bravely to enjoy everything and to pray with me as we traveled, but it was so hard for her. She looked at me one day and exclaimed, "when will I ever get well?" My heart broke as I watched her deteriorate under the effects of the hydrocodone and the pain that never seemed to go. 

Sylvia could not wait to get to Glacier National Park in Montana, however. She believed that as she worshipped God in those beautiful and breathtaking mountains of Northwestern Montana, she would be healed completely. I told her that Glacier had become my "cathedral of praise and worship" to God, and she too wanted to experience His presence and power there as she prayed.

Something totally amazing happened at that time. Sylvia decided that it was time to trust God for her healing from the abdominal pain, and withdrew "cold-turkey" from the hydrocodone pain killer. And from that time on, Sylvia gradually began to improve in every way, until the day she came to me recently and informed me that THE PAIN WAS COMPLETELY GONE NOW, and she no longer needed even Ibuprofen for pain relief.

What does this mean? It indicates that  Sylvia has finally experienced COMPLETE HEALING from the pancreatic cancer she was previously diagnosed with. The tumor on her pancreas, originally revealed through the CAT scan, would have to be gone in order for the pain to be gone, since it was causing the pain and pressure in her abdomen originally.

In fact, Sylvia is definitely now a new person. Previously, she was always weak and tired, at times almost collapsing in my arms. I am amazed every single day at the transition she has just experienced at the hands of her Savior, Jesus Christ. 

I feel overwhelmed, in fact, because I had been observing and working with her personally since last March, when I first came down to her home to help her. She appeared very ill, and weak when I first met her in Florida. 

But today, she is walking in victory and apparent total recovery, to the degree that she is going to work out in a local gym, along with me, to begin exercise daily to enhance her health and build up her strength now.
Praise God forevermore!

Readers, can you join with us in praising a merciful and Almighty Heavenly Father for His grace in healing and restoring Sylvia through Jesus His Son at this time? We cannot stop praising God every single day!

However, your prayers and support are still needed. Sylvia and I both are living in tents here in Northwestern Montana until God provides a housing solution for us. Temperatures are already starting to dip towards colder fall weather in this region, and Sylvia is struggling with the cold, having come originally from Orlando, Florida.
My humble abode, the "mini-moose lodge"

But she told me emphatically that God was calling here here to relocate in Montana, and to start her new life following Jesus daily, as she seeks Him for her field of ministry He desires to use her in. I am here with her to help her in this relocation, and to find what God has for her here.

Please pray that God will provide the right housing. We are looking at RV's and mobile trailers as options, instead of paying rent on housing you then have nothing to show for your money in the end. Our funds are small but our faith in BIG in an Almighty God Who has promised to meet our needs according to our riches in glory through Christ Jesus our Savior.
My "bedroom" for now...

IF you know of anyone who is willing to donate a used RV or lightweight travel trailer, please contact me. Years ago, I gave away an RV to a couple in crisis, and I am praying to reap the same at this critical time when housing is an urgent need before winter.

Sylvia and I thank you for your ongoing prayers and support! It is greatly appreciated during this time of transition for both of us as I help Sylvia fulfill her calling in Christ Jesus here.

Praise God with us for her ongoing miracles, and we will keep you updated as things progress. Sylvia says a hearty "THANKS!" to all of you, and so do I.

Sylvia standing triumphant in Jesus at last.

In Search of A Miracle From God

ONE WOMAN'S SPIRITUAL JOURNEY OF FAITH

By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-
What an amazing 
PRAYER JOURNEY ACROSS AMERICA 
this has truly been. I have finally arrived at my 
destination for now after being 13 days on the road and traveling over 2,000 miles filled with majestic splendor 
and beauty. 

Welcome to the glorious "Big Sky" state of Montana!

But this has been no ordinary trip across our nation. Accompanying me has been my precious Christian friend Sylvia Lynn Ferrare. This is the friend that I previously wrote about, who had been Initially diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer, given only 3-6 months to live. We both were both deeply devastated initially when we heard this tragic diagnosis and prognosis in the hospital that day.

Our grief was then turned into dynamic intercessory prayer and faith in a living God of miracles. A wonderful gathering of intercessors from a Christian retreat in North Carolina met in a friend's home and prayed over Sylvia intensely one night.

Following this, a week later she had a PET scan of the same area that the previous CAT scan had viewed and detected pancreatic cancer signs. This doctor said that "something had definitely happened" from the time of the CAT scan to the 
latest test. there seemed to be marked improvement in that scanned region. (And of course this was the power of PRAYER and Jesus Christ in action!)

However, the problem of persistent pain in Sylvia's abdominal area that radiated to the back, typical of pancreatic cancer warning signals, has persisted. After being warned of the health hazards associated with the type of biopsy 
techniques needed to ascertain if  this was truly pancreatic cancer, Sylvia declined and decided to go the route of a journey of faith in God's promises plus pursuing an organic-based diet and exercise agenda instead.

Sylvia all "cowgirled up" and determine to overcome 
her circumstances victoriously through Jesus.

Sylvia also decided
that now was the time to dedicate herself fully to following Jesus Her Savior and healer. And so she courageously sold all her furniture

 and most of her possessions in order to leave Florida permanently and accompany me in this prayer journey in search of her own personal miracle of total and complete 
recovery.

What an amazing woman, and what a bold step of faith she has taken! 
She is also relocating here to Montana, just as I am. Quite a transition from hot and 
humid Florida, to the Northwest where winter can  last ten months and evening temperatures are already down in the forties...and we can only afford to tent camp 
here at this time.

Taking care of Sylvia has been a full time labor of love. Having been trained as a home health care provider many years before I pursued journalism, I knew how to provide proper health care and food preparation for Sylvia when she has been too weak to do so alone. I did this for her for two months previously while staying with her in Florida, and ever since I picked her up from a family member's home in 
Pensacola, Florida, to accompany me in this PRAYER JOURNEY ACROSS AMERICA.


Sylvia has made tremendous physical improvements and grown spiritually through all this. But as my readers have observed, I have not been able to spend as much time writing inspirational articles on my blog, due to the many demands that Sylvia's health care has required frequently.

This has resulted in a tragic reduction in financial support for this ministry, 
leaving me without the necessary support so critically needed to continue at this time. I receive no income for providing full time health care for Sylvia: it is all 
provided freely, just as Christian concern and help for others in crisis should be.




His compassion through us will change the world.

Sylvia has admitted to me more than once that she would have died if I had not stepped into her life to rescue her more than once. But this is exactly what true Christianity is all about in the word today. As Christians, we are all called to love as Jesus loved us, and to lay down our lives for one another, just as He laid down His 
life for us.

We are now facing many critical needs at this time. Our finances are exhausted and we have been forced to now part with important personal necessities 
to sell on EBAY and CRAIG'S list just to afford tent camping fees, food and gas. Fall is coming quickly here in northern Montana, and we have not been able to locate 
affordable housing yet. This morning I could see my breath as I emerged from my 
tent.

While hardships like this are nothing new to me, having lived on the road under challenging circumstances to perform this journalism, all of this is quite new to Sylvia. I am amazed at her determination to overcome every new challenge and face 
every hardship with courage and faith in her Savior, Jesus Christ.


Understandably, Christian reader support is needed at this time. 
Winter weather comes early here in Montana

We are facing many challenges now, and colder weather is coming soon wherein we cannot continue to tent camp safely with her health issues. 

At this critical time, we cannot make it without Christian
support from the Body of Christ. Stepping out in faith as we have done has been a tremendous challenge for both of us.

Prayer Journey Across America Finally Begins!

FAITH CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS!

www.AmericanHolocaustComing.blogspot.com

-By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective.

Greetings to all my wonderful friends and readers across the globe and throughout North America! 


Finally, I am on the road with my exciting PRAYER JOURNEY ACROSS AMERICA. This trip will cover numerous states, and has already covered parts of the Southeast. I am now traveling across the western states of America, praying with every mile.

I apologize to all my readers for the lapse of time from the last article to today. However, during the Fourth of July weekend, God sent me out on another mission of mercy on behalf of a Christian in crisis several states away. 

The person I ministered to considered it ultimately to be a life-saving rescue at that time, due to suffering much oppression and opposition in this person's circumstances. Following the plea to come and rescue, I left North Carolina and traveled several states away to provide help.

I used this rescue mission to cover five states with prayer: North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida and Alabama. The ultimate thing to pray for across this nation is for Americans to be touched by the convicting power of God's Holy Spirit and to repent of their sins and receive true salvation throughout Jesus Christ.

A nation primarily consists of her people. It is impossible to save America from destruction, without the people of this nation FIRST BEING SAVED from sin's deadly consequences and destruction. America must return to God if America is to be spared.

Prayer subjects throughout this region also included praying about deadly MONSANTO crops of death while traveling through FLORIDA (where MONSANTO has one base in Pensacola.) I prayed about the recent sightings of UN vehicles appearing in this region. 

The GEORGIA GUIDESTONES outlining the NWO agenda for America and the world confirm that this state is fully on board the NWO agenda, and so I prayed about this. One Georgia congressman had even proposed a bill permitting EXECUTION BY GUILLOTINES in this state. Masonry is also very entrenched in Georgia.

FLORIDA is a stronghold of satanism and witchcraft heavily entrenched throughout this sunshine state. I spent much time praying against this spiritual darkness, and praying for the salvation of all those tragically deceived by Satan into this soul-damning darkness. One former high level satanist, now Christian, that I interviewed in Florida fully admitted this to be true as I questioned her.

FEMA martial law practice with civilians

Florida is fully prepared
for the declaration of martial law. Many military practice sessions have been held throughout Florida as local residents were used by the military for practice scenarios of military takeover. 


In fact, FEMA officials bragged to one pastor several years ago in Pensacola, Florida that "...under martial law, we have decided to seize YOUR church and use it as our power base of FEMA operations." Presidential executive orders will fully allow FEMA to seize any house, vehicle, building or people under martial law, legally.

Eerily, there is now a church in Pensacola with a huge sign accompanying it stating "FEMA."

ALABAMA is one state in which FEMA held a full fledged MARTIAL LAW SHUTDOWN in the past. The entire scenario of a martial law NWO takeover was enacted in Anniston, using the local residents as the players in this exercise.

NORTH CAROLINA is fully on board the NWO agenda for martial law. As I was researching there, word emerged from local readers of Russian troops in black uniforms training in Waynesville, NC. I have previously reported on the confirmed presence of prisoner boxcars with shackles and the modern military guillotines. Fort Bragg holds many dark secrets, including another military guillotine training program for select troops. Satanism is very strong in NC, tragically, as well as masonry.

TENNESSEE holds many dark NWO secrets as well. Many researchers suspect that foreign troops have a deep underground military base facility there, with many sightings of Russian troops there previously as well. Photographs have been published of large transports of DHS armored vehicles being transported through there. 

With all of this and much more in mind, I spent much time in prayer as I traveled through these states on my rescue mission. So much to pray about in today's world!

However, I am also thankful that Almighty God has HIS beloved people in these states, who are working hard to counter the darkness and to declare "Jesus Christ remains Lord" over our nation today, in spite of the forces of darkness battling for dominion. There are wonderful Christian ministries and churches throughout America, and God has a people who will make the difference in the outcome of this battle for our nation. 


Thank GOD for the faithful and steadfast Christians of North America! This nation would have been judged and destroyed long ago, had it not been for God hearing the prayers of His elect, and their faithful efforts to reach America for Jesus.

"For the sake of the elect,"  judgment has been withheld this long from a sinful nation and ungodly leadership. But we all know it is coming someday. But in times of trouble, His hands of mercy, grace and protection will be upon those who walk with Him daily in the love and fear of the Lord, abiding in Christ and remaining under His precious blood.

I have left the eastern states, to now travel throughout the Western United States for further prayer and Christian outreach to people in need that I inevitably encounter on the way. In fact, I always pray to encounter people in crisis that God wants me to witness and minister to. And it always happens, praise God.

I am also distributing Bibles freely, and practical assistance including food and clothing wherever needed.

You can now sign up for 
FREE POSTCARDS from across the nation! 


I always do this as I travel, to enlist other prayer warriors from across our endangered nation. Simply send me your mailing address by email and I will send you some lovely postcards from all across the USA as I travel. Send your name and address to:


Pamela_Rae_Schuffert@swissmail.org

I will faithfully report back to my readers everything of interest that I may encounter on this journey of faith and prayer.

Please pray for my safety at this time, and for God's gracious provisions to enable this to take place. 

Thank you!
Westward Ho!

Ukrainian Churches Being Attacked in Slavyansk, Ukraine

Resurrection Church of Slavyansk attacked in Ukraine

 -By Pamela Rae Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-


My heart broke when I read the following article from the Ukraine. How would you feel if you had been in church last Sunday, only to have bombs or shelling strike your church? This is exactly what happened to these people. How very sad. 

Please pray that the divine hands of God's mercy will intervene and retrain the violence and horror of fighting in the Ukraine at this time. May God bless and protect His beloved people in the midst of this bloody chaos. The Body of Christ is ONE throughout the world, regardless of nationality.


-Pamela Rae Schuffert-
*****************************************
Slavyansk, Eastern Ukraine

Ukrainian government forces have shelled a church in the city of Slavyansk in eastern Ukraine. An estimated 1,000 people were on the territory of the church during the shelling, which lasted for 30 minutes; however, none was killed, nor injured. Moreover, Ukrainian forces shelled the microdistrict of Artyom and the city's central marketplace, where several people died, the statement on the eparchy's website says.

Cathedral of St Alexander Nevsky being shelled


"The shelling began on Sunday morning at 6 am GMT during a liturgy. People were praying, when Ukrainian forces produced a first volley from Karachun hill. One woman was nearly beheaded by an explosion. We've buried her," archpriest Nikolay Fomenko said.

Ukrainian government forces have launched an attack on the Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevsky in Slavyansk, according to the local diocese.

"There were several more volleys and one of the shells hit the Palyanitsa bread kiosk located a few meters from the church, tearing it apart and burning whatever was left. Having heard the first volley, the saleswoman ran out - and that saved her life," said Archpriest Nikolay Fomenko, added.

"After the shooting began, everyone rushed into the church, people were praying on their knees. The wave of explosion hit the dome and smashed several stained-glass windows, prompting the people to pray even more. The volleys lasted for about half an hour," the priest said.

Speaking about the attacks on the Artyom micro-district and the central market, he said, that "civilians were killed in the Artyom area, two have already been buried today, Father Tikhon read a service for them. Our morgue is not working as there is no light in the city, so people have to bury their relatives in this warm weather straight away. 

One woman who was buried had her head nearly ripped off."

Ukrainian government forces have been firing at Slavyansk churches for seven days now, he recalled.
********************************************
My personal comment

Another church shelled in the region

Why would the Ukrainian government be shelling churches during this time of internal conflict? What military threat do peaceful unarmed Christians pose  to them? Shouldn't their attacks be aimed more towards actual military targets instead? What kind of dark hidden agenda is this, that they are deliberately targeting churches and seeking to murder innocent Christians? 

Please, let us join in prayer for God's children in the Ukraine, caught unwillingly in the crossfire of such deadly conflicts.
