I have known you and your family for a long time so I understand to some extent why you are making this change in your lives. Many of us talk about changing the world. This is certainly a direct answer to that issue and in the name of God. Obviously, we wish the entire Colker Group well in this endeavor. It will be very intetresting to follow you and the family as the adventure gets into high gear.

We will stay in touch and pray for you and your mission.

(This entry typed while talking to Jeff on the phone going over his plans.) I have known from my first meeting with this Brother that there was a Spiritural calling beyond the Colker Group, we rarely talked business after our first meeting, his passion, like mine, are for the good things of God. I ask every Christian to obey the Scripture and Pray for this effort. Who knows, it may bring You closer to God! Prayer changes things!

Holy Cow!! This is all so incredible!! The kids were discussing ways earlier to see how they too can become Missionaries... What an example ~living for Christ~ you are setting to those who bear witness to your lives... And to think 'our' Colker family has not yet even left Duluth!! We love you and miss you already...

Although, we've only gotten to know the 'Colker Clan' in the last year or so, Jeff & Pam are the prime example of believers that "Walk their talk." When Jeff told me back on Jan 20 of this year what the Lord was calling he and Pam into, I nearly wrecked my semi!! What courage and faith!! As we all know sometimes a calling from the Lord is crazy by the worlds standards. God bless the Colker family. Amen!!

Wow! We admire your commitment to this mission and pray that God will continue to lead you during this journey. Will you still be able to update your website with the latest family news from the Ukraine? We'll certainly be interested in hearing how things are going for you guys!

Jeff and family, I thank God for your faith and for your committment to the mission that God has given you. I pledge to be a constant prayer warrior for the Colker family and will keep in touch with you. may God bless and provide for your needs to accomplish this mission in His name. It has been a blessing to know you and your family and I thank God for the time He loaned you to us. May your delight always be in Him and may He always be delighted in you and your service in His kingdom.

I first met Jeff in a professional role.I was impressed by his enthusiasm for his business, how excited he was about the products he represented. Then he introduced me to his family via his deep love for each one. Then, when he spoke of his "First Love" he was off the chart excited! I feel honored to know one with such faith. Although I feel so unworthy, my hope is one day I will hear "You have been faithful over a (few) things....". The Colker family have taken a giant leap and are being faithful over many things. Surely the Lord will bless this act of faith!

I just don't know how your family takes care of all those kids, has pets, and are missionaries all at the same time! For me it's already hard enough to do my chores and help with my sister. I really respect you. I know that God will help you through it all.

I just wanted to let you know how awesome it is that you are responding to the Lord's call to reach out to the children of Ukraine. My wife and I have seen, first hand, the need that exists both physical and spiritual for the orphans. What a "coincidence" that I stumbled across your website! May the Lord bless you richly as you respond to His call to share the love of Christ!!

What an amazing story!
My wife Sally and I have four children (3 girls and a boy). God has called us out of our work-a-day world here in California to be missionaries in Slovakia. We will be living in Bratislava and working with Trans World Radio in September 2005 as career missionaries. Your web site is great! Keep up the good work.
In Christ,

Hi, Colkers,
Where to start?? What an impact you all have on lives; including mine; so dramatically. May God continue to bless you all, keep you healthy, meet all your needs, and cause your faith to inspire many many others to take up the cross in whatever way He leads. I have so far to go, but I've come so far by His grace, helped by your example and encouragement.

Dear Colker family,

What a privilege it was for me to meet Jeff in his CDTS in Lebanon and to hear of his wonderful family and the dream you all shared for the Ukraine - and now you are there and I am sure you are all having a tremendous influence on all you meet. I've enjoyed getting to meet all the kids online & see your hearts for the children of the Ukraine. May God bless you all - may God meet all of your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Love, Judy sorum

I bet you never expected to hear from the Bauers. We are fine and hope you are also. I knew you went somewhere overseas, but Julie Kuhns at Motorscrubber told me where you were and gave me the address. I sure hope you are following your heart and where God leads you. That is what we did.

Greetings Colker Family,

We've just been looking over your website - What a blessing and an encouragement! Mark just spoke with Greg's former business associate Garey tonight at a Tres Dias meeting and he wrote down your website.

God has also called our family to missions. We will be leaving in 6 months for France - via training in Wales, UK. We have 4 boys ages 11-5 and we've been trying to figure out the logistics of getting us all from here to there with all we have. Wow, you inspire us! We will be praying for your family!

Don't know, if you remember me (or my name) but i was in Ukraine about two weeks ago with the other 9 mebers of the team from The Faroe Islands.

Dear Colker family,Wow - it's been a year since I last signed your guest book. I've spent the last 40 min. looking through all your photos. The photos from the orphanages/orphans camp/gypsies are haunting - the kids have so little. I'm so thankful the Lord has sent you there because I know you are making a huge difference in their lives.
