Gary and Kristi’s Excellent Adventure!

Hello Friends,

We are writing to you to ask for your support for an upcoming ministry and life adventure we are embarking on this July. We will be traveling to the Ukraine to serve a ministry called True Hope Ukraine (website: On this trip we will be training ministry staff on Sozo ministry,  inner healing and deliverance to leaders who serve a large population of orphans and refugees. In addition to training and ministering to the leaders themselves, we look forward to loving and bringing healing to the refugees, orphans on the streets and in the orphanages. 


Pastor Max and Amanda Fetisov, Directors of True Hope Ukraine, work with hundreds of orphans and refugees in the Ukraine. They also enjoy partnering with  missions teams who powerfully impact and are impacted by God’s love in action. 

We will also be blessed to travel to the village of Glueksdal. Kristi’s grandfather, Christian Flemmer, was smuggled out of his family village 100 years ago. The Bolshevik revolution tried to force Grandpa Flemmer’s family to renounce their faith and young men to join the revolution. The rest of his family was either killed or exiled to Siberia. Grandpa Flemmer found his way to North Dakota where he married and raised a family, including Kristi’s mother. No one from his family has returned to that village for 100 years.

God is up to great things, more than we understand! We would value your support as we bring heaven to earth in the Ukraine. Your interest in supporting us on this trip with your prayers and/or financial support will be greatly appreciated.
