“But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion
So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal,
brought him to an inn, and took care of him.” — Luke 10
When a lawyer asked Jesus how one obtains eternal life, Jesus first asked him for his opinion. The lawyer stated, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and ‘your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus said you answered correctly, but then He gave the practical application to the lawyer’s question.
Jesus told the famous story of a man beaten by thieves and left for dead in the streets. Later that day, a priest and a Levite walked past and left him for dead. However, a Samaritan’s compassion stopped and cared for the emergency needs of the man. Jesus then asked the lawyer, “which of these three do you think was neighbor to him?” Many are in need, and many others have the answer, but few are those that go forth to answer the call to provide humanitarian relief for those experiencing an emergency.
The closer we move towards the return of Christ, the greater the need for those called to provide humanitarian relief to gear up. The scriptures declare that before His return, the earth will shake, and the lives of many will be in turmoil. Providing real-time relief opens the doors to personal and community evangelism. Pestilence, famines, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, floods, and war-torn nations are at historic levels. As a result, the need for missionaries to engage in humanitarian relief is an emergency. The world needs those who can care for the wounded while preaching to those who need a savior. A Luke 10 missionary is caring for those left on the street and then loving them with the Good News of Jesus.
Most human disasters are related to wars, poor resource management, and wicked governments.
A missionary whose focus is humanitarian aid could deliver a truckload of bleach to a flooded city or it could include organizing a medical relief team in Ukraine.
If God has put it in your heart to bring help to those experiencing a catastrophic family emergency, then Globe is here to help you to begin your journey.
SERVING IN : Ukraine, Europe
MINISTRY FOCUS : Evangelism, Mercy Ministry
We are the Perekotiys, a Ukrainian and American family! We have been entrusted with four beautiful children: Chambers (2013), Lev (2015), Mila (2016), and Remington (2019). Our story began when we met in Ukraine in 2008. After living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, we packed up our gang in 2018 and moved to Odesa, Ukraine, a beautiful, historic port city on the Black Sea. While visiting family in Alabama in 2022, the full-scale invasion broke out in Ukraine. We decided to remain in the US for the 2022-23 school year while supporting our partners in Ukraine through the War Relief Fund. In August 2023, we launched back overseas to share the Gospel among Ukrainians. We are based out of Bucharest, Romania, where we can serve refugees and be close to the Ukrainian border.
Through the War Relief Fund we have sent medical aid, vehicles, food, and education supplies to those in need. The needs of the vulnerable will only increase as this crisis continues, and we are committed to partnering with our friends and partners to meet those needs. We pray to use these resources to rebuild Ukraine when the war ends.
Our heartbeat has always been caring for the vulnerable and fatherless. Our vision is to see Christ proclaimed as we serve vulnerable children and families with national partners and churches. We also serve the unreached deaf community, and provide training and trauma resources for families and volunteers. Thank you for journeying with us!
