Ukraine's Protestant President

Feb. 25, 2014

Please continue to pray for the fragile situation in Ukraine which has taken unexpected and dramatic turns over the past few days. 

Ukraine’s parliament (Rada) has named one of its members, the opposition leader Oleksander Valentynovych Turchynov, as acting president until a national presidential election takes place.  Oleksander Valentynovych Turchynov is an Evangelical Baptist lay preacher who is well-known for his efforts to integrate his Christian principles and his political service.  

The national presidential election is scheduled for Sunday, May 25th.
