SERVING IN : Russia, Europe
Daniel moved to Russia in 1992, and became fluent enough to preach and teach in Russian within two years. Daniel earned a Bachelor’s Degree in foreign languages and linguistics from the University of Texas at Arlington, an Associates Degree in Practical Theology from Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas and also graduated from their third year school of missions program. Daniel assisted a Russian pastor in the ministry of God’s Peace Church in St. Petersburg for many years, serving in home cell groups, men’s ministry, worship and evangelism. He has led Russian believers on short-term mission trips and has also taught Bible School students about world missions. After serving four years in Scotland with the Hill’s and Haney’s, and traveling back and forth to Russia to minister, Daniel is back in the Ural Mountain region of Russia with his wife Ludmilla. Daniel and Ludmilla will be ministering to the local body of believers in the region, as well as preaching the Gospel to those who need Christ. In the future their vision is to serve and preach throughout Russia and abroad.
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!
