The following is a message from Foursquare regarding the crisis in Ukraine.
The U.S. Foursquare Church, together with Foursquare Disaster Relief and Foursquare Missions International (FMI), continues to stay in touch with our churches on the ground in Ukraine and Russia, as well as nearby countries receiving refugees.
FMI workers and Foursquare churches in Poland, Slovakia, Romania, and Croatia are already responding to refugees; we expect additional nations will open their borders to refugees as well. Thousands of Ukrainians have already fled the country; millions will be displaced by this war.
Alexandr, a member of one of our Foursquare churches in Kyiv, shares with us his journey to the border with his wife and child and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. Ukraine Story
Stories like this continue to unfold and Foursquare Disaster Relief is working tirelessly to provide support to those who desperately need it. We cannot do this alone. We invite you to partner with us by praying and giving.
Your donation to Foursquare Disaster Relief will go into the practical relief efforts, working through Foursquare churches in Europe.

How you can pray today:
- Pray for the families that are being separated. Women and children are allowed to leave Ukraine. Men ages 18-60 are not allowed to leave; they are staying to defend their nation.
- Pray for Foursquare Ukraine as they minister to the needs of their nation. We have 32 churches, a ministry training institute, drug and alcohol rehab ministries, as well as orphanages.
- Pray for Foursquare Russia as they stand for righteousness. Pray the Lord will protect our churches and our Foursquare national leader as he stands in unity with the global Foursquare church. Pray for our Foursquare family in Russia, as they are among those suffering the consequences of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
