Is this War? Russian Troops on Ukraine’s Border

Valdimir Putin caught us all off guard when his troops marched into Crimea and very quickly and somewhat quietly took over.

What will happen now that the annexation of Crimea is pretty much complete?

Will Putin go in and take another bite out of Eastern or Southern Ukraine?

Unfortunately there are many signs that indicate that Russian troops are prepared to go much further into Ukraine!

Here’s what Christopher Miller of Kyiv Post says,

“Russia is mobilizing for war and may be poised for a springtime invasion of Ukraine’s mainland, after stealing Crimea in less than three weeks. Tens of thousands of Russian troops and military hardware, including artillery, tanks, warplanes and helicopters are amassing and carrying out war games on all sides of Ukraine.”

I am a pastor, missionary, and preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Ukraine since 2007. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and 5 amazing children! My greatest passion is to teach, encourage, and exhort others to turn to Jesus, who is Savior, Lord, and God!

  • Caleb, I have thought about you all during this time of uncertainty in the region. You’re still in the US, right? I pray now for peace in the Ukraine, that God might intervene and bring stability and that many might come to know Him in the midst of this chaos.

    • Thank you so much for your prayers Chris, we really appreciate it.

  • Thanks for posting the article, Caleb. It gave a good thorough presentation of the situation plus it was interesting to read the comments at the end. It’s so strange to think that Putin was just in charge of the Olympics. Feeling so sad for all the Ukranians and all they’re going through right now. With so many worrisome things happening in the world, I’m grateful that God is in control and can bring good from bad situations.

    • Yes it is ironic for this to happen on the tail of the Olympics which is supposed to be a showcase of brotherly love among the nations. Thanks for praying!

  • William Smith

    you got my prayers, brother

    • Thanks so much William, we really appreciate! Hard to say what Putin’s next move will be.

      • William Smith

        I also see how close Odesa is to the action. 🙁

        • Yes Odessa is right between Crimea and Transnistria where there are also Russian troops now. Thanks for praying!

  • DS

    Here’s an organization also praying for you – Eastern European Mission. This was their prayer blast today:
    “May my prayer flow to you, like incense sweet to you, my Lord. And may my heart without ceasing sing praises to my gracious God! Merciful God, we pray for the people; merciful God, we pray for Ukraine! Save us from sin and forgive. Your grace to the people reveal.” Prayer for Ukraine

    • Thanks great! Thanks for sharing it David. This week some of our missionaries are returning to Odessa, so we are praying that things remain more or less stable.

      • DS

        More or less stable I believe would be welcomed in the region. Thanks for being a face and voice for good works their and for helping provide information to those outside looking in.

  • Continuing to pray for all involved. Thanks for keeping us updated, Caleb!

  • Dan Erickson

    I continue to pray.

  • Praying!
