FROM SHY CHILD TO STRONG LEADER

Tetiana, one of the first children to attend the Day Center in Khmelnytsk. When she was 1.5 years old her mother died, and until the age of 4 the girl lived with her grandmother. Later, father married for a second time, so Tetiana and her older sister moved to live in a new family, where she had a new mother and brother. At school, Tania was shy, quiet girl with almost no friends. She was most ashamed that her family did not have much money. Once Tania's brother was invited to the DC, after that she also expressed a desire to attend such meetings. Most of all, the girl was impressed by the leaders' attitude and love for her, despite her age and social status, she was accepted and loved as she was.

Attending the DC meetings, Tetiana has changed a lot. She found a lot of friends, which she always dreamed of. At DC she was taught to respect and love her parents and because of this, her relationships with her mother underwent major changes. Now, Tania has a strong and good relationship with her mother. That is a great example for many, because even the birthmother and daughter cannot always boast of such a strong bond as theirs. At DC she discovered her talents and abilities. Earlier, it was a quiet and closed child, and over time, she began to open and take an active part in helping Khmelnytsk DC. God worked with Tania's heart and from a shy girl who was afraid to even tell a poem at school, she turned into an active minister who runs DC events and gladly takes the role of the MC in the camps. Thanks to the DC meetings, Tania understood the main thing - what she wants to do in her life. Her calling is to help children and adolescents that are in difficult life circumstances. Children that are essentially as closed, unsure of themselves and don`t understand their uniqueness and their talents as she was. The calling to change lives as her was once changed.

Thanks to Youth for Christ Ukraine, Tetiana can fulfill her dream by helping children and teens. Currently, she is not only responsible for DCs in Khmelnytsk, but also assists other churches in the organization and development of DCs in the Khmelnytsk region.
