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!

  • Enjoyed the podcast. I am reading the book and it is an excellent read. I should finish it next week.

    • Awesome! Let me know what you think!

  • Worry destroys my peace because I am not capable of handling all of the things that I worry about. Jesus is, however, so He is my peace as I lay my worries at His loving feet. Thanks, again, for the book, Caleb! Such a blessing to those of us who struggle with worry. http://myoverflowingcup.com/what-if/
