YURIY AND MADISON PEREKOTIY
Serving in Odessa, Ukraine
Since June 2018
We are the Perekotiys - a half-Ukrainian, half-American family! We met in Ukraine in 2008 at a summer camp for orphans. In 2011 we were married, and we lived in Ukraine for one year before moving to Alabama. We have four beautiful children: Chambers (2013), Lev (2015), Mila (2016) and Remington (2019). After living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama and being a part of 3Circle Church for six years, we packed up our gang and moved to Odessa, Ukraine, in 2018. Odessa is a beautiful, historic port city on the Black Sea! Our heartbeat has always been caring for the vulnerable and fatherless, and we know how important it is to do this through the local church. Our vision is to see Christ proclaimed and worshiped as we serve the community in Odessa. We partner with a Ukrainian organization to serve at-risk families, orphans, and children with special needs. We are also learning Russian Sign Language as we prepare to serve in orphanages, boarding schools, and camps for children who are deaf.
