Jon and Sonnet Barr – The English Exchange, Moscow
The Exchange is a not for profit organization that has been providing social and cultural exchange for over ten years between American and Russian cultures in Moscow. Through professional training seminars, camps, cultural events, and the involvement in compassion outreach, the English Exchange provides opportunities to exchange ideas, cultural insights, history, and future dreams through personal interaction. We believe professional, social, and cultural exchange eliminates fear and provides a foundation for future cooperation and friendship.

David Hartwig – Faith Bible Camp
David Hartwig ("Twig") grew up through Faith Bible Camp. When Twig heard of the opening at FBC, he knew the Lord was calling him back home. Twig's breadth of skills and heart for the vision at FBC were a wonderful fit. Twig attributes much of FBC's success to the commitment of its volunteers as they respond to the Lord's call to be involved in the ministry at FBC-- a ministry that now sees both local and international impact through its ongoing international mission trips.

David and Sarah vanOrman – Planters Seed Foundation
God has greatly blessed us! Growing up in rural America and being fourth generation farmers in the heartland has given us great experiences and a foundation of faith. It has been through the understanding of God’s commission and purpose for us that we have been directed to serve the rural Albanian people. It amazes us how God uses our life experiences for his kingdom. Even though we continue to operate the family farms, we have been able to help lead the indigenous church to do the hands on ministry on a daily basis.
When we are not in Albania we are at home in Green Valley, Illinois. We have three daughters, Cydil (Nathan), Jenny (Seth) and Hannah, and three grand-daughters, Ellie, Tua, Pippa and a grandson, David Reni.
