We get to partner with two missionaries in Eastern Europe: David Michael Carrillo and Valery Hryhoryk. David Michael is from Indiana and is serving full time in Latvia and Valery is a native of Belarus and serves Belarus in the the city of Vtibsk. We are connected to Pastors Valery and David Michael through an organization called Eastern European Missions Network.
We connect with both missionaries through e-mail, social media and personal visits. David Michael and Valery both make regular visits to the USA and Spirit of Joy connects with them by sending short-term missionaries to Latvia and sending a member of our leadership team to visit Valery in Belarus (Belarus does not welcome visiting missionaries BUT they do welcome tourists).
