UKRAINE It is difficult to remind ourselves as we enjoy time outside
(albeit recently under grey skies) in the eastern part of Ukraine there is no
peace as shells rain down indiscriminately on people, buildings and fields. The
current avenues by which help can be given to support Ukraine, from hosting
a refugee family to prayer, can be found on our website:
www.mayfieldsalisbury.org/index.php/gallery/ukraine Please also remember
those in other parts of the world who face conflict and suffering.
