- Jul 22 Yura had the opportunity to coordinate Boys Camp! 40 teenagers + 25 leaders in the forest for 8 days ... God was really gracious + everyone survived!
- Jun 19 Yura + I stepped into new roles this year at camp - we are a combination of Member Care + Counselors for the Ukrainian volunteers.
- May 15 We are learning from Ukraine Without Orphans as we feel God calling us to this long-term ministry in Odessa.
We are the Perekotiys – a half Ukrainian, half American family! We have been entrusted with three beautiful children: Chambers (2013), Lev (2015) and Mila (2016).
After living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama for six years, we packed up our gang and moved to Odessa, Ukraine, a beautiful, historic port city on the Black Sea!
Our heartbeat has always been caring for the vulnerable and fatherless, and we know how important it is to do this through the local church. Our vision is to see Christ proclaimed as we serve the community in Odessa. We partner with a Ukrainian organization to serve at-risk families, orphans + children with special needs. We are also learning Russian Sign Language as we prepare to connect orphanages, boarding schools and camps for children who are deaf.
