What we do
This project connects people who are driven by the love of Jesus and are striving to show God’s awesomeness as we bless others. It started with Russian invasion in Ukraine. As people of this country were struck by destruction, loss and fear, their needs greatly increased. Besides those killed and hurt, thousands were displaced and forced to flee. Many lost their jobs and subsistence.
On the other side of the globe, there was a response from individuals, families, groups of people and churches who chose not to stay away, but share their resources with those in need. To be their brother’s keepers and become channels for God’s amazing love and care.
Now, with the onset of cold weather and the deliberate destruction of Ukrainian infrastructure by Russia, many people find themselves without any facilities or heat. Especially the residents of recently liberated territories.
This urgent need has challenged us to focus our joint efforts on helping Ukrainians survive this winter. So that they can keep warm and cook hot food.
For this purpose, we have begun our “Share warmth” project in which we want to buy wood stoves, thermal underwear, and chainsaws to send to those regions where need is the greatest. Thanks to some of our partners and caring people, some of the money for this has already been raised and the first batches of goods have already been ordered and are getting ready to be shipped!
Our united effort will answer the vital needs of those who are trying to survive in the midst of war.

We strive to show the love of Jesus in every aspect of our lives. We both grew up in families that put a emphasis on serving God. My Dad and Mom Tony and Cindy Collins have served in ministry as pastor even before I was born. My Dad is still my Pastor unfortunately my Mom went on to be with Jesus last September. Our family places God first above all else. Ashli is a stay at home Mom and I run a small lawn care business here in East Tennessee.
