Our area has one of the largest Ukrainian populations in the country and I have become friends with some of them at my church, Two Rivers Church. In fact, one of my friends left the area to go to Romania to help translate for the Ukrainian people that were fleeing their homeland.

She is making one of the biggest sacrifices that can be made. She has left the comforts of the Southern Tier to go to a war-torn country to make a difference in an ultimate way. In fact, I've learned that she has since left Romania and is now in Ukraine and is literally on the front line.
