Halloween at Katya's school Always eager to meet new people and develop relationships, our girls jumped at the
opportunity to visit a Ukraine classroom and share about American traditions -- this time it's Halloween!

A Day in the Life (part 1) We're often asked what a "Day in our life" is like, so Andrea put together a little video showing
typical events from her days.  Enjoy!

Ministry Overview
While we were in the States a few years ago, we showed a
five-minute video to many of our supporting churches that

ministry is having.  If you'd like to see it, click

Month in Review
Photography Tips
This summer we put together a short video
that shows how we are helping Ukrainian
believers establishes outreaches to the
community.   Here's the finished work,
highlighting the Christian Counseling
Center in Odessa, the Medical Clinic in
Belgorod, and the Life Care Center in Izmail.
Helping Ukrainian believers reach Odessa with the Gospel!
Something almost every
American can do!
Missionaries often spend a lot of time in seminary,
language school, and cultural courses learning how to
better bring the gospel to a culture.  None of that is
very helpful, however, unless you have people to talk
with!  It's ironic that the most useful tool we Americans
have to meet people in Ukraine is a tool that we've had
since we were in kindergarten -- speaking English!

Many Ukrainians want to learn English, and a native
speaker is the best person to learn from. You could do
it too, contact us if you're interested!
