The other day we received a shirt request from the Ukraine. The actual request is at the bottom of this post. As of today, we have received more than 6,000 shirt requests from Russia and its surrounding countries. We have only been able to fulfill about 300 of these requests as of yet. To put this into perspective we have received less than 200 requests via our website in the US and all of those request we have been able to fulfill. So we continue to ask the question in prayer…why Russia? why Ukraine? why Lithuania? why Latvia?
For some the answer is because the shirt is free. We have seen our website linked on websites where people just go out and collect free stuff. For others it is because they are people of faith and have a desire to be linked to a faith movement outside of their country or better yet express their faith to their countrymen through this shirt. Since we have limited funds, we rely on the Holy Spirit to direct us where we send shirts to.
For the request below we cannot discern the truthfulness of the story supplied but we can proclaim to a strong desire to see God’s hand at work in the current situation in the Ukraine and if our shirt somehow plays a part in that we would have received an answer to our “Why Ukraine?” prayers. That is our prayer!
Reason For Requesting a Shirt: Now in our country is very tense, you may have heard about it, almost a civil war. at a rally in the city center, I met a man in a same t-shirt and spoke to him. this guy has attracted people and inspired them hope, and remind that everything will be fine. and you know, it was great. sorry for my English and have a nice day – Vitaly
