Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary (UBTS) President Yaroslav “Slavik” Pyzh and his wife Nadia are outside of their native homeland for the first time since the Russia’s invasion of the country in March.

Pyzh is in the U.S. thanking supporters who have allowed the seminary to provide humanitarian aid alongside tuition-free education during Russia’s war on Ukraine.

Tuition has been waived for the 2,000 students currently enrolled in the seminary in Lviv on Ukraine’s western border.

The seminary served as a refugee center during the first months of the war, is strengthening internally displaced people through humanitarian We Care Centers across Ukraine, and is helping restore pastoral leadership at perhaps 450 churches that have closed as a result of the war.

A tragedy in South Korea that claimed the lives of 156 people on Oct. 30 has given an opportunity to look into the needs of young people in the country.

Grace Winslow, a member of the International Mission Board’s Seoul Global City Team, has been working with young adults in the area and spoke with Baptist Press on the tragedy as well as how the IMB is working to connect those affected to the Gospel.

A Halloween event in Itaewon drew a large number of students. Experts believe more than 100,000 students attended the event due to a desire to reconnect with people following the Covid-19 pandemic.
The event was being held for the first in three years since the lifting of COVID restrictions.

Winslow said young adults in South Korea, just like those in other parts of the world, are longing for community.

Unfortunately, in this situation a crowd surge caused a deadly situation along narrow streets that claimed the lives of the students.
