Blessings of the year!!!
This table was full more times than we can count this year!!
Over 600 individuals received food bags and follow up visits over the year.
The “You are Special” club is the highlight of so many young people. Meeting at least 2-3 times a month!
Every Saturday, we set up a tent for giving out literature, pamphlets, Bibles and prayer.
5 Camps in 6 weeks reaching over 250 children in 4 villages!
Trailer loads of wood delivered to many families heating with wood.
Youth ministry and outreaches are a huge part of our lives as our family consists of 8 young people!
The crisis center has served over 900 families and individuals providing them with clothing, food, adult diapers and meals. We have also purchased the garage and land near the center, fenced it in and built a covering for wood, future camps and gatherings. We are also in the process of trying to purchase the other garage and land on the property.
Andrii has completed his first year in firefighter school! He can offically work as a firefighter, but is furthering his education at the same school in order to gain more experience in this sphere.
The harvest the Lord gave us in fruits this year was overflowing and we were able to bless others with cherries, strawberries, grapes and apples and we are still giving away apples! We are thankful for the abundance!
We celebrated 17 years! We like to describe our relationship as an atomic bomb – Ukrainian, American and Indian cultures colliding! We are grateful to the Lord for teaching us how to use all our cultures together for His glory!
We’ve organized 3 outreaches in 6 weeks so that Dental Hope Ukraine could come to our city and bless over 35 people with dental work they otherwise would not be able to afford. We are looking forward to several more in the near future!
Our large family – grateful for the growth, love and blessing it is.
We have been saving up for the past 4 years to go away together on vacation out of the country and this year, the Lord blessed us with a dream come true trip to Turkey. It’s one that none of us will ever forget!!!
Along with all the above ministries and things that have been done this past year, there are so many other ways your support has been able to help others through Raising Hope!
