Maranda and Vasya Heytsi are missionaries working in Ukraine. Their work centers around the newly established New Life Church and its outreach ministries of Bible Study, youth group, kid’s Bible club, feeding the hungry, youth camp, evangelistic summer camps, a Creative Center ministry for youths reached at the camps, and worship services. The growing ministries sparked the start of an addition to the church, which is not yet completed. They also have a passion to help those experiencing homelessness and addiction.
To this end, they have begun to build a shelter/ministry home. God has also provided an open door in a nearby village. Their prayer is that God will enable them to assemble a committed team to start this outreach.
Rolando Mejia, along with his wife, Yessenia, serve as a team pastoring a new church plant in Masaya, Nicaragua. Rolando also developed a women’s prison ministry a few years ago. Most of the women in the prison where Rolando’s ministry works are victims of alcohol and domestic abuse.
The funds we donate are used to purchase hygiene products for the women as the prison does not provide such items for them. Visits are made on a regular basis to present the items to the women, share a meal and present the gospel to them. Rolando’s dream is to build a halfway house for the women who are released from prison where they could learn a marketable skill to help them avoid returning to their former way of life.
