    BAPTIST PASTOR NAMED AS UKRAINE'S ACTING PRESIDENT

    'People started crying out to God and even the TV media spoke about the role of the church'

    (Christian Post) After watching their country erupt into months of angry anti-government protests, Christians in Ukraine praised a peace deal that ended the protests as well as the appointment of Baptist pastor Dr. Oleksandr Turchynov as their interim president.

    The Ukrainian parliament voted to impeach President Viktor Yanukovych after he fled the country during deadly protests. Oleksandr Turchynov, a pastor and right hand man to politician Yulia Tymoshenko, who was recently released from a two-year stint in prison, was elected interim president until May 25 when the country is expected to hold a presidential election.

    “Joy and sadness overfills our hearts as we celebrate the news of birth of a New Ukraine and grieve for the young men, students and husbands who died for this to happen,” said the European Baptist Federation in a statement Sunday.

    Sad, when we realize that there are countries where God is free to work...., and that ICHABOD is written over the US.
