Meet Lauren Stovall (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Jul 27, 2021

“This was a God thing. There is no way I could have chosen Ukraine on my own.” As an elementary and middle school art teacher, Lauren never imagined God would call her overseas, let alone to Ukraine. But He did. During a summer internship in Odessa, on a long bus ride home after teaching university students at a week-long English camp, the Lord began to stir an intense desire in Lauren’s heart to serve the people of Ukraine.

This is the first in a video series following Lauren's journey from support raising to Ukraine.
