Rick Schwendinger


I, Rick Schwendinger, and my wife Tanya whom I married in Ukraine, have a mission to help Ukrainian people in any way possible.  Currently, we send money monthly to pastors and missionary friends that are doing outreach in different cities in Ukraine, but mostly in Kyiv.  I lived there for a few years as a missionary and go back whenever I can to do missionary work and visit our friends and family there.  Since the war started a few week ago, our funds have been and will continue to be directed to help supply refugees and families in need until the war is over.  We are in constant contact with Ukrainians still in Ukraine and with Ukrainians who just crossed the border out of Ukraine. 

Obviously, these are difficult times for them. Please join us in our efforts to support Ukrainian refugees. We are not taking a single cent for ourselves.  We have our own jobs and God has blessed us. We only give to the people and organizations that we personally know in and around Ukraine.  Thank you in advance for your one-time gift or monthly gifts. The need is ongoing before and after this war! 

Much love to you and your family for your sacrifice.  God bless you!
