I came to Ukraine on a short term mission trip with my home church in 1993 and felt God calling me to full time missionary service. After my husband's death in 1995, I began the process of applying for ministry with TEAM. In 1996 I left for Ukraine to begin ministry in church planting. I helped to start 25 AWANA clubs in the Odessa region and started a church in the village of Lubataievka. In 2011, I completed a church plant in the "Field of Miracles" in the city of Odessa. I have also taught the Bible in public school English courses and have discipled women and teenagers in home Bible studies.
I am currently involved in a new church plant in the town of Petrovka in the Odessa region. We have a children's Bible club on Saturday, a worship service and church fellowship on Sunday and a Bible study on Thursday. In the near future, we plan to begin a ministry to young mothers using MOPS and a ministry to the youth in our town through sports.
Primary Prayer Request:
Please pray that our team will be effective in sharing Jesus' love to the children, youth and adults in our town.
