Earlier this year most of you know we hosted a creative/musical team from YWAM for two months.  The trip was a God ordained connection from our visit to Life Center Church in Harrisburg, PA.  I love when that happens.

From the start we believed this specific YWAM connection was the start of God answering our prayer to infuse life, and awaken more souls to His love – via ‘creative expression’ and worship/prayer.  The project, called “Awakening” was an incredible blessing to many students, and believers in the region.

It’s been a privilege to journey with Collins over the past few months as he prayerfully considered this opportunity.  He is aiming to join us at the start of 2016, Lord willing by Feb 15, and stay for the year.

Between now and then he will be raising support for his ticket and living expenses while in Ukraine.

You can read Collin’s announcement and also encourage him with a donation online of any size!  Click here to read

We’re doubly excited that Collin’s church (Life Center) has a desire to continue being involved in Ukraine/Russia, with Collins and our family via Lighthouse Ukraine.  We’ve come to find a caring, supporting and involved sending church essential.

Here’s a little video from Life Center to give you a flavor of their heart and mission –

This year we’ve been praying specifically for God to unite us with more of His Kingdom, Kingdom expression, and resources – resources like our friends at Life Center, and Collin’s with his humble, willing, and creative heart!

We are also receiving informal applications for individuals who might feel called to serve with us in 2016 (3 month and 1yr terms) as God continues to grow the Lighthouse Ukraine team.

We are specifically praying for those with creative talents (painting, singing, musical instruments, dance, writing, video, audio, photography, design) to both teach, but also help to produce some engaging, relevant evangelistic tools.   Feel free to email me about this opportunity and more information!
