About us

Please follow along with our journey as we aspire to keep our hearts open to where God wants to see us. For the past 10 years, our family has been actively traveling around the United States and abroad. The people of the Middle East have a special place in our hearts. Over the course of several years, we have taken multiple trips to Israel, Greece, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Recently, our focus has shifted to other parts of the world. Specifically, Germany, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Belorussia, Lithuania, as well as the war-torn regions of Ukraine. During our time there, our focus is working with local churches to bring our testimony, hope and humanitarian help to the people in need. Thank you for your support in this.

My name is Susanna and I love cupcakes. Growing up as the only sister to three AMAZING brothers was a blessing. I believe in the power of kindness – anything that is done without love has no value or meaning.With that being said, I’m an educator. After earning my BS in Music from University of Northwestern, I have been passionate about empowering the next generation in serving God.

Hello my beautiful people. I’m a double shot of espresso that will do whatever it takes to get the job done. I absolutely adore working with kids and teens; traveling and serving those that need help most. If God can change just one life through our ministry, it’s more than worth the hours of work we put in to make a difference in the world today. I love people and treasure long lasting relationships.

I’m the latest addition to the Sharikov family aka married to Thaddeus. I’ve always dreamed about getting involved in mission work. It turns out that dreams do come true! I’m a Christ follower, fan of happy people (kids, especially!), and green tea. I like positivity and surrounding myself with like-minded people with a taste for new experiences.

Being the eldest sibling definitely has it’s ups and downs. My goal is to be grateful and optimistic in all situations. Avoid taking anything for granted. To keep God first in everything that I do. My favorite place to serve was in Israel – it’s an experience that is hard to describe. The country left a special place in my heart, so in 2016 my wife and I were married in Jerusalem.When it comes to ministry, I like to start from a place of love. I believe God can use us to reach people, and for that to happen, it’s important to build connections based on love and understanding. We never know how far reaching something we may think, say, or do today will effect the lives of millions tomorrow. I like efficiency and goal-setting. The standard must be high – we are serving the Most High God.

Hey everyone! I’m a happy kid that loves Jesus. I have a lot of energy and love meeting new people. You can often catch me making music or brewing coffee for the crew. I spread love everywhere I can and really enjoy helping others. “Kindness of the ultimate strength” -GV. Super grateful to God and parents for the opportunity to travel, make music, and tell this world about Jesus.
