A US Army Special Forces Green Beret is representing Jesus Christ and giving out His love in the war-stricken field in Ukraine.

Sergeant First Class Christian Hickey joined the Army as an elite Special Forces Green Beret after being a Marine. When the war broke out in Ukraine against the Russian forces, he knew that he was being called by God to be on the front lines. However, fighting against the enemy was not a part of his calling. He is being called in the war field to share the gospel.
“I wasn’t called here to shed any blood. I was just called here to tell people about the blood that was shed for them a long time ago,” Christian said in an interview.
His higher officers and supervisors were concerned about his calling but God still opened doors for Christian. He arrived in Ukraine representing Jesus Christ.
“I am not here representing the United States Military. I’m not here representing my command I’m not here representing the National Guard. I’m here as an ambassador of Jesus Christ, and that’s exactly what I’m doing here. As a missionary in Ukraine,” he said.

When he arrived in the war field, he saw the Ukrainian troops in desperate need of medical aid. They only have one medic for over 100 soldiers fighting in the war. Thankfully, Tactical Combat Casualty Care was one of his specialties. So, he stepped in to help them. Over the following months, he trained several men skills they needed to stabilize their wounded brothers.
“To help get them to a higher level of care. That’s mostly what I like to deal with. It’s like ‘hey, here’s how to save a brother’s life,’ or ‘here’s how to stay alive if you are injured,’” he said.
Representing Jesus Christ
During winter, he also helped in providing food, firewood, and other supplies needed to make it through the winter season to the villagers inside the war field. It was a high-risk mission as these villages are still littered with Russian minefields.
“We want to basically be the hands and feet of Jesus,” he continued. “These very strong powerful NGOs bought all this food, and they don’t have the action arm to actually deliver it. We’ll take the food and we’ll make sure it gets to the right people at the right place at the right time.”
The US Special Forces Green Beret is sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the people in the war field. Let us pray for peace in Ukraine and protection and comfort for the people being affected by the war.
