Stop The Bleeding

Promise Made, Promise Delivered

On 23 April 2022, Pastor Kurt Erickson and Karl Shifflett hand-delivered the CELOX™ Rapid Gauze to our medics. We were not able to go to the front lines the week Pastor Kurt was here due to heavy fighting, so the medics came to us. We also delivered CELOX Rapid Gauze to other medics not pictured below.

Thank you so very much for your giving. In Heaven, you’ll get to meet the soldier whose life you saved with your donation. May God bless you for your donation to Ukraine and the CELOX Rapid Gauze.

CELOX Rapid Gauze Delivery

This short video (edited for brevity) shows interacting with one of our medics during the delivery of the CELOX Rapid Gauze. In addition to an explanation, we watched a training video and provided directions translated into Ukrainian. Most of our medics were familiar with CELOX Rapid Gauze, for those who were not, we did in-depth instruction.

Visiting The Front Line

This video was made when Pastor Elijah Perevoznuik, Dima Krasnopir, and I went to the front lines. Dima made this incredible video of the trip. We went out of town to bring aid to our soldiers on the front lines in the Southern Region of Ukraine. We traveled only 40 kilometers and saw the horrors of war with our own eyes.

Went to support our military, and give them medications and supplies. But in the end, the military encouraged us with their unbreakable spirit, courage, positivity, and an attitude to retake every bit of our Ukraine. Thank you to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we are proud of you.

The Beginning

On 27 February 2022 Pastor Kurt Erickson of Eleos Ministries and Karl Shifflett of Bikers For Christ Indiana partnered together to bring much-needed life-saving CELOX™ Rapid Gauze to Ukraine. CELOX Rapid Gauze hemostat stops the bleeding in 1 minute or less from serious arterial wounds. It costs about $48.00 per package.

Moving To Mykolaiv, Ukraine

On 21 April 2022, Karl moved to Mykolaiv, Ukraine. He is a volunteer at Церковь Победа Николаев, Victory Church of Mykolaiv. You can follow Karl Shifflett on Facebook to learn more about the work God has for us.

Stop The Bleeding Continues

We have begun raising additional funds for another round of CELOX Rapid Gauze. When enough money comes in, we will make a second purchase and Pastor Kurt will return to Mykolaiv, delivering the CELOX Rapid Gauze. Thank you for considering supporting the purchase of additional CELOX Rapid Gauze. All the money donated will be used to purchase the CELOX Rapid Gauze.

Stop The Bleeding Expanded

After spending time in Moldova and since moving to Ukraine we have expanded the Stop The Bleeding mission to cover these additional areas.

Children Of War is an effort to help children and teens horribly impacted by the war. We have obtained materials translated into Ukrainian for the child and facilitator. We have arranged for training over Zoom, to begin on 6 June 2022 for many Christians to be trained over a 10-day period. Karl will take the training in English in May.

Anti-Sex Trafficking website, targets women in high-risk situations, explaining the terrible consequences of trafficking and how to spot and avoid traffickers. The website will also provide contacts and information for many European countries. This website will be in multiple languages and make it very easy for women to consume the content and stay safe when traveling.

Anti-Sex Trafficking applications are under design with experts in the anti-trafficking world feeding into the designs and development. Some applications will be private others will be available in the app stores.
