Summer is a very busy time in Ukraine. Here in Odessa, along the shore of the Black Sea we have hundreds of thousands of tourists. This drives prices up on rentals and makes it very difficult for many of the refugees that we work with. Currently, the group of about 500 refugees is negotiating with the city concerning their living arrangements. It looks like they're going to have to start paying regular rent where they are staying in a government building. Few have the means to pay this rent so some are considering going back to Eastern Ukraine. Prayers for this group of refugees is appreciated as well as for us as we minister to them.
