My name is Victoria Negrimovskaya. I was born in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, in a Jewish family. In our family, nobody talked about God. I graduated from a technical school that prepared me for no job at all. I went from job to job seeking a higher salary. My marriage failed. I survived on 5 grivnas ($1) a week. I received Jesus at a Bible study home group where I was invited by a friend and later I began to attend a church. I met Jews for Jesus at a presentation in my church. But I had my doubts about this way of serving the Lord. When a year later I attended a Shabbat meeting of Jews for Jesus, my doubts disappeared. During the Behold Your God campaign in Dnepropetrovsk, I watched the Survivors Stories video, and it confirmed my thoughts and feelings. In 2003, I took part in the Odessa Behold Your God campaign and in 2004, the Kharkov BYG campaign, following which I joined the staff of Jews for Jesus as an outreach worker of the Dnepropetrovsk branch.

Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving.
