Editor

Rebekah Fruin

is an ATCK who spent portions of her life in Russia, Cambodia, and the USA. She is grateful to be serving as a missionary to Ukraine. One of the most important things she has learned is that God is not held back by any cultural, language, or personality barriers – therefore, by His strength and wisdom, she can also be a light for Him no matter where He calls her. She wouldn’t trade being a TCK for the world!
