MOLDOVA — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced missionaries would be taken out of Ukraine Monday, and full-time missionary Sister Ryann Peterson shared a little bit of her experience.

“Many of you may have heard about the contention between Ukraine and Russia, all missionaries in the country of Ukraine that are non-natives will be evacuated and we have all received reassignments. I am so blessed to stay in the Kyiv/Moldova mission and continue serving I’m the country of Moldova,” Peterson stated on social media.

Few missionaries got the opportunity she did, to stay within the mission boundaries.

“We will now have Ukraine missionaries in countries around the world including Germany, Armenia, Bulgaria, Poland, Croatia, Canada, Moldova, Brazil and the United States,” Peterson stated.

Despite the struggles she’s dealt with, Peterson remained positive saying, “With missionaries in neighboring countries, the hope is to get us all back in Ukraine as soon as the area presidency says it’s safe to return!”

She shared her beliefs in a social media post, and invited others to keep the people of Ukraine in their prayers.

“I’m so grateful for a living Prophet and Apostles and the revelation they receive from God. I have seen the Lords hand in these missionaries’ lives and in my life. I will miss Ukraine, my mission best friends and those I’ve met in Ukraine dearly,” Peterson said. “Please keep the people of Ukraine in your prayers and I hope to return soon, until we meet again Ukraine family.”
