Vitaliy and Natalia moved to Ukraine in 2009 with their three children.
–“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
Our desire is to glorify God by joining forces with Christians from different denominations to do anything and everything that He enables us to do, in order to provide for the needs of HIS orphans.
We have 4 orphanages that we visit monthly. Weekly our team of volunteers that have committed their time and wisdom to serve the children. Yearly we organize a week camp for the orphan children, it has been such a blessing to both the volunteers and the children.
This year 2016 we have committed to visit infant orphanage weekly and also, an orphanage/boarding school for children with disability.
James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
Dr. Marvin Nelson DDS has been serving Ukraine for 6 years now with dentistry.
We also have been blessed to have Marta Card a Registered Dental Hygienist come with Dr. Marvin Nelson DDS and provide dental care for the orphans, missionaries and people in need.
We are also looking in increasing the ministry at minimum three times a year, with different dentist, so it will not be a heavy load for just one dentist and a dental hygienist. We are praying and looking for more dentists.
We would like to have a team come and serve the children, by educating the children about good dental hygiene; while the dentist works on the patients. We are looking for costumes a tooth and a toothbrush.
The church has a program called “Compass Club”weekly the children attend “JUMP (kids) and “Switch ON” (teens). The kids learn about different topics and where they can feel safe.
Medical Ministry (Global Health Outreach)
What is GHO: The goal of Global Health Outreach short-term medical, surgical, and dental trips is to come alongside national partners who are making disciples, planting churches, and evangelizing in their particular areas. We seek to use our medical skills to offer hope and compassion to the least, the lost, and the last who often have no access to any health services in their country. Their poverty, social class, or geography may require them to suffer in silence, and often die prematurely from medical conditions that may be treatable.
What is RescueNet: RescueNet assist disaster victims with skills in: Search and Rescue, Emergency Medicine, Trauma Counseling, Fire Suppression and Refugee Reception.
“Because you send us we can go; because we go they can live.”
