SERVING IN : Thailand
MINISTRY FOCUS : Unreached People Groups
Ty & Jessica have a passion to be a part of Jesus’ commandment of “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20. God’s heart for the nations (‘Ethne’ or people group) has been unfolding through all time – starting all the way back in Genesis. God seeks glory among all peoples of the world. Yet, there are still over 2 billion people that are considered unreached. Many of those have no access to church, a Bible, or even a Christ follower to tell them the good news – the news that will save their soul.
Ty & Jess’ heart for the unreached people of the world began in a Perspectives class where God revealed to them His will for their family. So they said “yes” to the Lord and the Wrights embarked on a wild ride that took them to a secure country in East Asia for their internship, back to America to train new interns to go, and then in February 2021 to where they currently are serving, in Thailand.
In Thailand, Ty and Jess have a focus of reaching the Thai people, a people group that has less than 2% Christian adherence. While Disciple Making Movements is their goal, they are starting a business, partnering with local Thais, to give a platform for not only disciple making, but also for community transformation in the village where the business is located.
Ty and Jess have three wonderful daughters that love Thailand as much as their parents. The girls play a part in the ministry and business as well.
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!
