On Cummins Forum, we have been blessed with many Premium Members. These Premium Memberships go to pay for the server and the software for this site. This last spring however, we were able to use some of the funds coming in to help support the site to be able to help support a little boy in the Ukraine. Through the organization that we went through, this young man will recieve food, clothes, shelter, and an education in a loving environment that will give him hope in a country and government that offers none.
Thank you for helping to support Cummins Forum. It is Andy's hope to continue sponsoring little folks like Illya as Cummins Forum grows. Illya was chosen specifically because of his love for cars and wanting to grow up to be a driver.
It is Andy's hope and dream that as Cummins Forum grows, and as long as it keeps paying its bills and takes care of its needs, that we will continue to be able to give more to people that have nothing.
Illya Kokhanskyi was born March 14, 2002 in Morozivka (Brusilivskyi), Ukraine .This family of five lives in a village in a three-room house. In 1996 the family left Kiev and moved to this village where Illya's father was supposed to plant a church. Illya's father left the family before starting the new church. The four children remained with their mother, who is unemployed and is registered at the labor office. She receives a children's allowance of $100.00 a month.
Illya has three sisters; he is the youngest child in the family. He is a healthy child. He likes to sing and draw and he says that he is going to be a driver when he grows up. His favorite toys are cars. He also loves to play with their pets, a dog named Taika and with his kittens.
All the hardships haven’t turn Illya's mother away from God. The whole family attends a local church and prays for the father's repentance, and that he would return in their family. Their other prayer request is spiritual blessing for all of them.
