There are four children in the family. The father of the older daughter, Maria, was a gambler and was not working and the mother left him because of it. Mother made another attempt to have a family with him, but the only result of this attempt was her second daughter, who was born in 2001. Her third husband is the father of Mykola and Nazar – two younger sons.

Their father is unemployed but works on the side delivering pizza. He takes people home from church. The mother has graduated from college and used to work as a landscape designer. Then she stayed at home with the children. And now she works as an operator of gas-main pipelines. The six of them live in a two-room apartment. Health-wise the boys don’t have problems. Older daughter Maria has high sugar in her blood.

Maria graduated from the Academy. Ksenia is a second year student at college where she studies law. Two younger boys attend school. Nazariy is in the fourth grade. After school he attends a swimming pool. Nazariy wants to be a computer programmer in the future. Mykola is in the third grade. After school he attends judo trainings. Mykola wants to be a cook when he grows up.

The family attends a local Christian Light of Life church. The children used to study at Christian school but due to financial reasons had to return to a common school. They ask you to pray for God’s protection and guidance in this environment. Please pray also for peace in Ukraine.

Sponsorship will be a blessing for the Marmolenko family.
