Justin Welby Made Statements Following Death of British and New Zealand Aid Workers in Ukraine

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, had paid tribute to the aid workers who had died while rescuing a woman from a war zone in Ukraine.

Christopher Parry and Andrew Bagshaw, British, and New Zealand Aid workers, were killed as they tried to rescue the woman from an area of fierce military action. According to the Premier, their car had been hit by an artillery shell. In a heartwarming tribute to the aid workers who lost their lives, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has paid his respects and honored their bravery. 

Parry, who had been raising a GoFundMe for the course of helping the aftermath of the war condition, had gathered $23,000 at the time of his death.

The statement from the official website of the archbishop of Canterbury reads;

We are united in our shared beliefs in: 

(i)  The love of Almighty God, and of all our fellow humans, 

(ii)  our rejection of hatred as manifest in immoral and unjust aggression and warfare.

On the basis of our united beliefs, we deplore the war in Ukraine and call on all nations of the world to: 

(i)  demand Russia’s immediate withdrawal and ceasefire;

(ii)  contribute to the subsequent healing and rebuilding of the sovereign nation of Ukraine.

We stand in prayerful solidarity with the people and churches of Ukraine, and with all those caught up in this terrible war. We pray for those who mourn, those who suffer, and those who fear for their future. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ for His justice and peace.

The Statement was signed by; 

The Most Revd. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Most Revd Philip Richardson, Bishop of Waikato and Taranaki; Senior Bishop of New Zealand Dioceses; and Primate and Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.

The Most Revd Don Tamihere, Pihopa o Tairawhiti and Pihopa o Aotearora and Primate and Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.

The Revd Sione Ulu’ilakepa, Bishop-elect of Polynesia and Primate-elect of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia

The Archbishop’s tribute has been widely appreciated and has brought attention to the heroic efforts of aid workers who risk their lives every day to save others. It is a reminder of the crucial role that aid workers play in providing essential services to those in need, especially in crisis situations.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
