Our friend John Whittemore from Memphis (USA) is in Ukraine again...

- John, what was the goal of your visit this time, and whether you managed to achieve it?

4432j

- The main purpose was to conduct a Christian camp for children and graduates of boarding schools. The camp successfully was held from the 7 to the 13 of January, 2014 in the Carpathians. My goal also is visiting children in boarding schools and meeting older children, with whom I‘ve already built the relationships. They are graduates of boarding schools and children who joined our camps in the past.

A Friend

I want to tell you about my friend. He could be my grandfather, but I feel that he is my best buddy. First of all, he is my friend, and secondly, he does not look like an antique grandfather at all.

01However, when he sits down at the computer and focuses, analyzing passing day, he becomes like a professor. But you would be very surprised if you see how he is playing soccer, swimming in the pool or throwing snowballs! You can ask me the questions, where did you take these examples from? My friend is not only my friend, but a friend of dozens of Ukrainian children who for various reasons live and study in Rivne region orphanages or are the graduates of these institutions.

John and Marilyn Whittemore

In order to help these children, John Whittemore is coming from the U.S. to Ukraine. Moreover, he is doing that for the last seven years - four times a year! It is difficult for him to speak Ukrainian, but he remembers dozens of names and life stories of Ukrainian guys about whom he cares a lot.

Ministry of American dentists in Ukraine

IMG 0845In April of 2013, eleven American brothers and sisters from three different states (Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas) came to Ukraine with a noble mission – to provide medical help to orphans and children from complicated families. They worked in Oleksandria for four days. During this time, they diagnosed, consulted, and provided dentist treatment for about 200 children from orphanage and foster home.  

Local medical workers have seen high professionalism, good organization, and self sacrifice of their foreign colleagues. Children were thankful for attention, friendliness, and patience. Those who were afraid, were calmed down, and shown and explained the equipment purposes. After treatment, children received recommendations regarding medicine and meals. When the team had spare time, they played with younger children, and gifted toothpaste, toothbrushes, and pretty Bible bookmarks, which were prepared by Memphis Sunday school, to everyone.

Samaritan’s purse

We are grateful to the mission “Samaritan’s purse” for Christmas gifts, which we have used for the development of Christian ethics in Zdolbuniv, the Kunyn public schools, the Mizoch orphanage, and the special orphanage in Rivne.

With the help of these gifts, teachers were able to organize Christmas auctions, tell about Jesus Christ, share with their blessings and witness how children enjoy sweets and toys, which were inside the gift boxes.

On the 29th of January, 108 children from the Mizoch’ orphanage received gifts, which were handed to them by their orphanage graduates, which live in the Bondarchuk family.

“Gift Hope”

The Christmas philanthropy event “Gift Hope” is interesting because it encourages families to share during the holidays. Parents and children make gifts and put them in a special box called “Gift Hope”, which is delivered to child in need.

For the second year, our familyparticipated in this event. Currently, we have 11 boys, who study in higher educational institutions of the Rivne region. Through different philanthropic events, we teach our boys to share warmth, give people joy, give orphanage children hope to be found and have family, and to become friend with children. This year, we got several families from the church “Spring of Life”, our Bible study groups, team Nuga Best, the public schools, and the Zdolbuniv trade school involved. The participants filled 116 boxes total.
