One can never be fully be ready for a crisis, even if aware of the danger. Maja and Bogdan share their first-hand experiences of helping and serving at the Polish/Ukrainian border while coordinating humanitarian aid and providing emotional and spiritual support with Proem Ministries during the critical early stages of the war. When crisis knocks at your door (quite literally in their case), a shift from a „mission trip” to a „mission-oriented” lifestyle in the face of immediate need defined their response. In their unreadiness, they responded almost instinctively, affording wholistic and practical care for Ukrainians who needed it most. What does „mission-oriented” mean and how do we develop such an attitude for unforeseen crisis? Join us to find out!
