Mission Statement

The heart of the Full-Time Ukraine Teaching Mission is serving Ukrainian Catholic University students in L’viv, Ukraine. This is an extension of Ukraine Teaching Mission, as working as an English professor year-round provides ample opportunities for the students to encounter Truth, beauty, and goodness in intentional, classroom environments. Through relational ministry, English instruction, and prayer, missionaries and students will pursue authentic friendships with each other and Christ. May we be like those on the road to Emmaus; inviting Christ into our lives, recognizing Him, and being transformed.

“As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.”

-Luke 24: 28-33

Ukraine Full Time

Hello my name is Caroline Reel, my deep love for the people of Ukraine and desire to teach can only be from the Lord.

As I learn to trust in His goodness and better serve His people, I can’t help but delight in the ways He has revealed himself in Ukraine and blessed this continued mission.

May my work as an English professor always meet the academic needs of Ukrainian Catholic University students as they improve their speaking, writing, and reading skills.

My formal role includes teaching nine English sections a week to three, diverse levels of students.
