Mission Trip to Ukraine Orphanages

"They who receive gifts do not possess them for their own sake but rather for the sake of others." ~ Saint Basil the Great.

All for JMJ,

My sister Zenovia and I will be going on a Mission Trip to the orphanages of Ukraine for three weeks starting later this month. We will be joining the Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil The Great from Pittsburgh, PA.

Since 1911, the Sisters of Saint Basil have led uniquely effective and innovative ministries in education, spiritual direction, evangelization and lay collaboration.

The Sisters engage in service that glorifies God while serving God's people. Following the example of St. Basil The Great, the Sisters work to relieve the needs of the oppressed, the broken and the unlearned with patience and charity.  

We started our Go Fund Me Campaign in order to help supplement the costs we have incurred for traveling abroad to visit three orphanages and one mental health facility. We are bringing small gifts, toys and candies to children that have very little. We will be staying in  monasteries, so our room and board are taken care of by the religious of the country. 

Our time will be spent helping the children learn English, being of comfort and just listening to their needs and dreams.

If you feel you can help support our efforts, we ask first for your prayers for these children. Please pray that they find a family to adopt them and love them the way we all wish to be loved and cared for.

Your financial support is greatly appreciated and we promise to make sure your donations are used to be of Love and Service to Our Lord.

With Love and Appreciation,

Anastazia & Zenovia
