After getting married in 2013, the Oleniuks spent a year in South Korea teaching English. This first sparked their interest in cross-cultural ministry and serving Christ outside of their familiar world. In 2017, they joined a SIM team in Ghana. They are learning the local language and making friends, hopefully leading to deep discipling relationships.
The focus of the team's ministry among the Sisaala people is to see a mature Sisaala church owning their faith within their culture.
