"My team and I just returned from serving with Mission 823. Words can not even begin to describe the love, commitment, and integrity we witnessed. Thank you Shawn and your entire team for so selflessly devoting your life to rescuing and defending the vulnerable Ukrainian youth. God bless you all. You ARE making a difference. - Allison


Just got back from helping out with a camp with Mission 823 in Ukraine. Great experience! A wonderful opportunity sharing the hope of Jesus with many kids. Shawn, Vladimir and their staff were amazing! If you’re looking for a mission to partner with that’s making a difference - check out Mission 823.." - Mason


"A mission filled with the one true kind of love, the love of Jesus and it is committed to helping the children of Ukraine one heart at a time." - Jamie


"I just got back from a mission trip in the Ukraine, what a blessing it was serving along side of Mission 823. I'm looking forward to coming back next year, and continuing to give to this amazing Missionary!! I was blessed by this camp, and was able to see first hand 50+ kids accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior!!! Mission 823 continue to be a blessing to the country of the Ukraine, and bringing these kid's into a relationship with Jesus. The kids and your ministry will always be in my prayers!!" - Tom


"What struck me the most when I was there was the resilience and commitment of the children Mission 823 has already helped. We had the great fortune to meet some of the kids (who are now young adults) who came "back" to serve others with our team. They are my inspiration that light still has to power to cast out darkness if they are only given a spark. I have seen with my own eyes that this Mission is the real deal folks. Thank you for supporting it with your prayers, donations, and educating others about the war that is being waged there." - Allison

"It is my privilege to endorse Shawn Sullivan, founder of Mission 823. I have met with Shawn to discuss the vision and mission for the children and youth of Eastern Europe, especially those in Ukraine. His personal story is one of Holy Spirit direction and personal inpiration. My wife and I have personally invested in Misson 823 and would encourage anyone seeking to extend our Lord's kingdom to prayerfully consider doing the same." - Dr. George Cope, Vision Orlando​​​​​​


"Mission 823 is of grave importance to a world that experiences more slavery today than at any other point in the history of time. Shawn and his dedicated team are on the front lines, saving the lives of youth in Eastern Europe, specifically in the country of Ukraine. After meeting Shawn, I was was moved by his heart to serve, however the more I began to know him, I realized that he is not only a man of great passion, but he has also built a solid team and strategy for carrying out his definite purpose. I highly recommend Shawn and Mission 823 as a consideration for partnership and global impact." - Marq Neasman Sr., AOK High Performance
