When you are sitting half a world away and see places you have been many times riddled by rocket fire and bombs, and people you have known and worked with for 10 years hiding in bomb shelters and evacuating to save their lives, it has an impact on you. And so it was with me on February 25, the second day of the new stage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
I had to do something, and I knew by the Spirit of God that it meant acting immediately. These were my students, colleagues, graduates, and friends. It was in those moments that ServeUkraine was born. This has been my focus for the last 2.5 months. We have been blessed by many who have given, and have been investing in those who have great need and in those who are doing the work on the ground helping others.
Expect to see the work with ServeUkraine and the situation in that nation be a primary focus here in the coming days.

After this page being dormant for so long, it is about to be active again. Christianity Today magazine contacted me about helping their readers get a sense for the worshipping heart of the Church in Ukraine. The article is 5 Ukrainian Worship Songs for War and Peace and it just posted today. If you came here as a result of that article, thank you for checking us out this far. Join us and come back to this space for more opportunity for understanding and prayer for Ukraine in the current conflict.
Welcome to “The Heumann side”. This is my first post and my first attempt at cataloging some of my thoughts on “life, the universe and everything” as it relates to my passions and interests. Hopefully you will find something useful, stimulating and or interesting here! I’d love to see it become a connecting point for my various spheres of involvement–friends meeting friends.
Please be patient as I learn what to say, what not to say, what’s appropriate, what’s oversharing, et cetera!
