Viktor Hamm, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Vice President of Crusades, has been in Ukraine, amidst the escalating crisis. He knows the region well. Born inside a Soviet labour camp, he became a Christian preacher – against all odds – and has preached the Gospel all over Ukraine.
“My visit to Ukraine is to… encourage church leaders to focus on Kingdom goals even in this tragic hour,” he said. Ukraine is considered to be Eastern Europe’s “Bible Belt” – large numbers of ordinary Ukrainians have sought God in this crisis, which could lead to real trust in Christ.
Hamm has held a meeting with the acting President, Oleksandr Turchynov. “Mr. Turchynov is a member of an evangelical church in Kiev, a solid evangelical believer, a brother in Christ and a great political leader,” Hamm said.
