As a young married couple, we had the privilege of spending a year with missionaries Rick & Cheri Thompson in Kenya Africa. It was during this time in Kenya that our eyes were open to the reality of poverty and the children living in it. We believe God used this year to show us His future plans for us to help children in need.
Currently we are Interns for the ministry Children of Destiny Nicaragua. For the past 20+ years this orphanage has been a home for children who have been abandoned and/or suffered abuse. It is our great privilege to serve the children in this orphanage.
We thank each and everyone of you for your support. Be blessed, The Snyders
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!
