"when possible the gospel of
Jesus Christ was shared"

When the Marcum’s joined Fruit of the Vine Ministries in 2007 they were involved in ministry in Ukraine. During three years of living in Mukachevo Dale and Janice worked in ministry at the Evangelical Methodist Church and in the Roma villages. They also developed the orphan outreach of New Beginnings in 2004 which continues under the direction of Igor and Alexandria Matvayuk. The Marcums ministry includes construction, helping with teams, street children, and orphans as well as local outreach. Through these continuing partnerships orphans received a home and hope for the future. The church was remodeled and street children have a place to receive physical and spiritual food. Teams brought helping hands and as when possible the gospel of Jesus Christ was shared.

Fruit of the Vine partners with Ukraine YWAM ministries. Even though the base is located in Ternopil the ministry spreads throughout the country.  The Marcums have partnered with teams in Mukachevo where they have ministry outreach to the Roma people.

In the Roma village of Radvanka we partner with Pastor Brugosh and his church. Through their weekly soup kitchen ministry many children have met Jesus. We have been blessed to financially support the work of this community. During our periodic visits we have been able to make building repairs, teach in their services and bring glasses to this community. People can now see and read. We also supply a monthly salary to Pastor Brugosh to equip him to do the ministry God has called him to.
