Together we are light, together we are the Lifeline
Andrey’s parents immigrated to the USA 19 years ago, when he was about 6 years old. Their pursuit was of freedom of faith, safety and better life. First and foremost, Andrey Ilyuk is a faithful Christian, great husband and a good father of two young boys. He and his brother have been brought up knowing hard work ethics very early on. In 2015 two brothers have established used car dealership that continues to grow and succeed with every year. Recently, in response to the horrific war in Ukraine, Andrey has gathered a team of people that created the Loving Lifeline charity organization. As the president of the Loving Lifeline, he is equipped with various tools to serve as the bridge between people who are in need and those who want to help. His motivation is the Gospel of Christ, his goal is very plain “to save as many Ukrainians as possible”.
Stanislav Tryfonov was born in Mykolaiv, Ukraine and had lived there until the age of 23. He devoted his life to Christ almost 11 years ago and since then he has been active participant in Evangelical Church. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine, that broke out in 2014, has prompted Stanislav and his mom to seek refuge in the USA. They were able to join his sister, who’s longer before moved to the America, at the end of 2017. Prior to joining the teams of ODA and The Loving Lifeline Stan had committed himself to studying Theology and working as a craftsman. His motivation to help Ukraine is deeply personal not only because of the immediate family he has there but most importantly, he believes that “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life”.

Currently, Sam works full time as a real estate professional in the state of New Hampshire and is an active volunteer at Manchester Slavic Evangelical Church. Although Sam grew up in New Hampshire, he still has ties to the Ukrainian language, culture, and people. Seeing the current events compelled Sam to help out in some way. He joined the team at The Loving Lifeline to do what he can to help out those who are suffering and in need through no fault of their own.
