YMI is making an impact in Ukraine! One example comes to mind. At YMI’s English Camp this year, I had the privilege of working with a translator named Misha, who is a youth pastor for a church plant in Kiev, Ukraine. As I was talking with him one day, he shared something that I will never forget. He was talking about taking classes in the youth ministry program and what he did for a living while doing ministry. He said that he had just recently changed jobs from a well paying job (I think roofing) to now passing out fliers for their ministry in front of a store. Misha is so committed to doing ministry that He took a pay cut in order to have more time for ministry, which he does not get paid for! It was a challenge for me to see a man with such strong faith to go along with the great training he is receiving through Kiev Theological Seminary. This is an incredible testimony of what God is doing through YMI to train youth leaders around the world and watching them minister to students.
