Mike & Kay Killar - "Samaritan Creations"
Samaritan Creations exists to rescue, restore, and empower women by the grace and love of God. By offering women an alternative income to prostitution we both rescue them from the trap of selling their bodies and empower them to alter the course of their lives. Through the telling and living out of God's love, the rescued women are restored to a right relationship with God and others. Via entrepreneurial training and funding, we empower women to return to their hometowns to plant churches, alter the local economy, and forewarn people of the trap of prostitution. Samaritan Creations was founded by the Killar's (Mike & Kay) and the Phomphoung's (Kong and Sook) in May of 2010.
Valera, Maude, Zarina, Alexander and Nicolas Motovilov
Valera and Maude Motovilov along with their three children—Zarina, Alexander, and Nicolas—are HIM missionaries to the Czech Republic. The Motovilovs have been working with HIM since 2006. They first spent nine years in Russia pioneering a new work in Valera’s hometown. Then in 2015 they answered a call for help from the field of South Africa.
After they spent three years in South Africa, God closed the doors for them to stay there legally. As an answer to prayer, Valera and Maude got in touch with some of the church leaders in the Czech Republic. God was opening a new door, promising many exciting opportunities for ministry in a country that, just like Russia in the past, suffers from the anti-God ideology of communism.
During the past two years, the Motovilovs have been working with university students, giving them the opportunity to practice their English with native speakers while using this as an opportunity to teach the students about God and His plan of salvation. They have also been working with the Russian-speaking church teaching the children’s Sunday school class and Valera has helped with preaching.
Thank you for supporting the Motovilovs as they minister in the Czech Republic!
