Hello, I am Darrel Hathcock.  After serving as missionaries in Central and Eastern Europe for more than 16 years, my family and I returned to the States where I now serve as Missions Strategist for Fannin Baptist Association in Bonham, Texas. Part of our time in Europe was spent in Ukraine where we lived in Kyiv, and worked with churches across this great country to encourage evangelism, missions, and discipleship. The relationships that we forged with those in Ukraine have been lasting.  Even today we have had conversations and texts regarding today's events and the uncertainties which have been thrust upon them.  We have heard the description of early morning explosions that shook the capital city, seen the injured from the unprovoked attacks, and are aware of the need for prayer and assistance for those who are seeking refuge, help, and hope in the days to come.  Gifts that are provided through this venue will be directed toward reputable organizations whose goal is to provide such assistance as providing housing, food, transportation and other immediate needs; and to those whom we know are working and serving in the country of Ukraine to meet both physical and spiritual needs of those who are neighbors, friends and fellow laborers in Christ. Your gifts will make it possible for greater ministry to those who now live with uncertainty. Our ultimate hope is that these gifts lead others to know and see our Great God working through His people to accomplish His purposes.
