"It's not about having goals of our own. It's about having God's goals as our own."

Operation Can Be Done

In 1996, I was working as an international consultant in Ukraine, when a friend came from Canada with a suitcase full of gifts for the orphan children. I did not know, until we stepped into the orphanage that day, that there were a large number of children living in deplorable conditions in institutions around the country.


On a cold December day in 2001, I was in Ukraine and wondering, "What am I going to do for Christmas?" That's when I got an idea that would eventually change the lives of thousands of orphans!

Every summer now, for several years, Loads of Love has put on wild Bible Camps for over 3,000 children in Ukraine! That’s right! That’s not a typo! THREE THOUSAND CHILDREN!!! These camps are literally changing the next generation of this nation, one child at a time.



Sergey and Anya Bajenov. Since those days, Sergey and Anya have developed an impressive web of people and programs transforming orphanages, hospitals and seniors homes. For me, it’s been a great honor to personally witness the miracles that they have been a part of in their beautiful homeland. Several churches and organizations have partnered with us to see that the miracles continue!

Planting Churches


In Ukraine, for example, there are over 10,000 villages that do not have any churches at all. Working together with existing, on-fire churches overseas, we have been able to plant over 500 new churches and build more than 20 new church buildings! One of our partner churches, in Krivoy Rog, Ukraine, has started over 300 new churches!

Men's Institution

Buriy Oogliy

Loads of Love began helping the men at the Buriy Oogliy Institution (just outside the city of Krivoy Rog, Ukraine) in 2006. When we first arrived, we found many of the men in an uncovered cage behind the main building. When we offered them bananas, through the bars, they began eating without peeling them. We quickly realized they had never seen bananas before.
