How I Met Nina 
I met Nina six years ago on a trip to Ghana, Africa.  Together we had the opportunity to speak in schools, visit villages, love on orphans, feed a leper village, etc. The idea for the Inspiration Centre was sparked out of our trip to Ghana and continued with a building being purchased in July of 2016. Renovations are continuing! Thank you for being a part of helping this wonderful community of people in Shepetivka, Ukraine!

"Nevertheless, he took me to another building that he had for sale. When he was opening six classrooms, different ideas came into my mind – we can do WooDecor Club in that room, here we can teach kids the Bible, and this room can be for orphans… When the owner opened the door of the large hall, God gave me a vision of little gypsy kids standing on the stage and singing Christian songs and playing on the bells. Their happy faces broke my heart into little pieces. All I could do was to pray for the development of gypsy ministry." - Nina (Program Coordinator)
