In occupied Lysychansk, women rescued Bibles that Russians threw out of a church library
This is reported by Slovo Pro Slovo (Word About Word).
As the pastor of the church, Eduard Nosachov, told the human rights organization "Voice of Martyrs-Korea", the courtyard next to the church attracted the attention of the few remaining members of the church.
"The authorities threw the contents of the church library, including Bibles for adults and children, into a pile in the next Yard," says Dr. Hyun Suk Foley, a spokesman for the voice of Martyrs – Korea organization.
According to Foley, several women who remained in the city initiated a rescue operation.
"Their goal was to collect Bibles, books, and transport them to a safe place for storage and future use," she says.
Dr. Foley noted that the work was slow and dangerous.
"The occupation authorities installed flags of Russia and the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) on the facade of the church building and began its reconstruction for use by the military-civil authorities. In particular, it is planned to remove the cross from the spire of the building, " she said. "Collecting and transferring literature was risky. Believers could be recognized as Christians. As reported, the occupation authorities detained and interrogated Christians."
