I was born again in 1995 in the "Ark" church in Sumy, Ukraine. In 2001, I started my own business and dedicated it to the Lord. Through my business, I have supported many Christian projects and ministries,
including a missionary team from Ukraine in Kenya. In 2011, I went on a short mission trip to Kenya
to learn more about the work of the missionaries that I had been supporting. A year later, in 2012,
I made another trip to Kenya with my wife Irina, where we received God's calling to become missionaries
in Kenya. Having taken a little time to prepare for a full-time mission, we sold our property, closed our
business, and went to the city of Kisumu, Kenya, to start our missionary work.
