Mark and Donna McDonnel are missionaries with WorldVenture serving in Kyiv, Ukraine. We are originally from Texas but we now feel like our home is in Kyiv, where the Lord has directed our hearts and lives. Our oldest daughter Anna and now our son Benjamin are currently a college students and living in the U.S.
Through teaching, discipleship and evangelism, we are training Ukrainian believers to be grounded in the Word of God, and to make disciples and grow churches in Ukraine and beyond (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2). In addition to working at the Kiev Seminary, it is our privilege to work in our church’s ministry to those with disabilities. We consider this an important ministry and dear to the heart of God. Life can sometimes be difficult in Ukraine, and it is doubly so for those with disabilities.
