Michael and Shirley Bradley are called to the nations. For 20 years they have lived and served the Lord in Iceland, Hungary, and Andros Island, Bahamas, and Turkey. Recently the Lord opened the door for them to return to Debrecen, Hungary to a people and a land that they love very deeply. Joining hearts with a Hungarian pastor as members of a ministry team in an international church called A Ház (The House) their primary emphasis is the English speaking congregation mostly university students from several African nations. Michael teaches a student discipleship study group and often teaches the men’s ministry and preaches. By reaching these young men and women for Christ and discipling them, they have the opportunity to prepare the next generation of potential leaders that will one day return to their countries. Shirley assists in discipleship, helps the children’s ministry program as an advisor, shares in the women’s ministry and has opened their home for an art club for teenaged girls that is designed to help them develop their artistic talents and sow into their lives spiritual truths. The Body of Christ is being strengthened by Michael’s gifting as an encourager to pastors, a Bible teacher and mentor of new believers. Shirley enjoys children. Her creative talents have reached children through Fine Art Camps, training others that have a heart for children and teaching ladies Bible studies. We deeply appreciate your caring support in committed intercessory prayer, encouragement and your financial gifts.
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!
