By Richard Hunt “We have eight kids under-our-roof that are adopted – ages 21 to 6 – (she smiles), so it’s been a busy household, but we enjoy it.

By Richard Hunt God is at work, even in the chaos. As Water Mission provides thousands of gallons of life-saving water, refuges are coming face-to-face with people who know Jesus. “You are treating me with more love than I’ve ever received – and I’m a complete stranger to you – and because of that, I want your God to be my God.”

By Richard Hunt Led by native Ohioan Kyle Schlegel, Youth with a Mission Kyiv shares hope in Christ and is meeting needs.
