"In June 1994, the Lord called our family to work with the deaf people in Simferopol, Ukraine. Our deputation began in October of that year. Praise the Lord we finished deputation in 18 months and on May 6, 1996 we arrived in Simferopol, Ukraine. At present the Lord has provided so that we average between 100 to 110 on Sunday (that is counting deaf and hearing). Several of our men preach on a regular basis. To date, there have been 6 churches or ministries and a Bible College started in the state of Crimea. To God be the glory, GREAT things He hath done!"  ~ Bob Van Sant
