Found in Translation

Ukrainian Man helped by Airport Chaplaincy.

On Wednesday 16th August a young Ukrainian man, R, was referred to the Airport Chaplaincy by Border Force.

Because R has no has no visa he will have to return to Ukraine, so Border Force held on to his passport and gave him two days immigration bail during which the Chaplaincy team arranged his return flight.

Other members of the chaplaincy team put R up in the family room for the first night, then when Nick came on duty the day after, he provided him with breakfast and arranged a local B and B for his second night.

R doesn’t speak English, but Nick discovered through a translation app that he is a church goer in Ukraine.

Nick commented; “When R returns home, he will probably be called up to serve in the army so please pray for him and, of course, for the continuing situation in Ukraine”.
