Meet Vasya and Anna

Before the war, Vasya and Anna’s friendship first grew at Lifesong’s Day Center in Kharkiv…

…over a mutual desire to reach children in need with the Gospel. Anna loves to draw, and she uses this talent to teach important truths to children through art. Vasya grew up without a father and has a desire to be a strong male role model to kids with a similar background.

Earlier this year, they decided to get married, and after the war broke out, they evacuated and married in Western Ukraine. Shortly thereafter, they felt God leading them back to reach people in their community.

So they went back.
