Begin by cultivating a loving heart, a listening ear, and the habit of prayer. Look for opportunities to learn about other cultures and develop skills for cross-cultural communication. There are lots of resources on this site, including the article "How to Start a Cross-Cultural Ministry," that can help you prepare to move forward in faith.

Your church can buy a video for less than $20 and sponsor a "Ukrainian Night" to show the film and begin a dialogue. Ask Ukrainian leaders in the community if they would like to see the film and if they'll help you invite other families.
