Dmitry & Lyubov Ryabov
I'm Dmitriy Ryabov (most call me Dima) am the pastor of a Church in Kremenchuk Ukraine which serves a community consisting of mostly Roma people. I am also serving as the director of a charitable organization called "Exodus."
From the beginning of the war, we continue Church ministry, focused on the needs of today to help immigrants from other cities with food support, overnight accommodation, and most importantly preaching the gospel. We often deliver products to areas of humanitarian disaster. From the beginning of the military conflict, so far we have transported and handed out 20000 kilograms of humanitarian aid. God has shown us the tremendous need and human suffering brought by this military conflict, and we will do everything possible to serve the people suffering from the horrors of war.
My personal ministry with my wife is not limited to ministry in the city of Kremenchuk, we are also engaged in ministry to plant new churches in two other communities, Zapselye village in the Poltava region and Onufrievka township in the Kropivnitsky region. We have been serving with KontaktMission for many years, and are eager to see what God has for us in the future as we continue to serve in His Kingdom.
Lives are destroyed, yet the peace of Christ is made known
Today our city of Kremenchuk has become a refuge for many people who have been driven out of their homes and villages by war. Many have broken homes, destroyed possessions, and a great need for the inner peace that Jesus Christ can give them. We have a great opportunity to reach people with the word of the living God and we have a lot of work to do in different areas of ministry (social, spiritual, and just physical assistance).
Support our ministry
It is no secret that from the very beginning of the church Christians have taken an active role in being missionaries and sending missionaries. Yet not all are called to be missionaries. (We are all called to make disciples)
Being a missionary is a calling, but have you ever considered that sending missionaries is also a calling? So what is your calling? Are you the missionary or a missionary sender?
All Kontaktmission staff live on support, meaning we believe that God will provide for his mission, through his church.
Please consider joining our sending team by partnering with us in prayer and partnering with us financially.
- We need prayer for our health
- We are facing huge emotional fatigue as we are in a stress zone.
- We need help with our financial needs.
- Pray for repentance and salvation for those who are touched by our ministry.
