I am a pastor, missionary, and preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Ukraine since 2007. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and 5 amazing children! My greatest passion is to teach, encourage, and exhort others to turn to Jesus, who is Savior, Lord, and God!

  • Caleb: I’m sorry but I don’t have the time to listen. Can you give me a real short written answer to your question? Still praying for Ukraine.

    • Bill, can you believe that I’m so lazy not to type out my answers?!

      Just kidding, I’ll send you something later today!

  • I had a hunch that the people in Crimea voted their pocket books, humans are the same everywhere. I also agree that Putin is a strong leader and people want to be part of a superpower. Praying for his conversion and the church.

    • Floyd it seems to me that there’s something in the heart of man that makes people gravitate towards strong rulers, whether they be good or not. For many people Putin offers them safety and security.
