Meet Josh, Nicole, Nora and Titus Baldonado. We have been married for almost six years and have a three-and-a-half-year old daughter, Nora, and a one-year old son, Titus.
In 2014, we moved as missionaries to L’viv, Ukraine, where we serve at New Horizons, an evangelical church plant started by Nicole’s parents. To learn more about our ministry, click here.
A little more about Josh
I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and later moved with my family to Minnesota and then Indiana. After graduating high school, I worked full time and then gained my Associate’s Degree in Theology through Calvary Chapel Bible College Indianapolis. I attended Horizon Christian Fellowship in Indianapolis for 15 years and served there in the sound, youth, and home fellowship ministries. I also visited Ukraine multiple times before our move and spent one summer here serving with New Horizons church.
I’ve always had a passion for hard work and the importance of providing for my family. I’ve worked in insurance, health and wellness, and technology. As a missionary, I’ve had a remote job that allowed me to support us financially on the field. We now believe that I’m called to devote more time to ministry.
I moved with my parents and four younger siblings to Ukraine when I was twelve, and since that time have lived in Ukraine, Hungary and Indiana. I graduated from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Vajta, Hungary and later earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Indianapolis. I worked for three years for the Indiana Attorney General’s Office as part of a statewide task force to address human trafficking in Indiana.
Being Mama to our sweet Nora and Titus is one of the greatest joys I can imagine! I also have a passion for intercultural experience, discipleship, social justice, learning languages, and travel.
Nora will celebrate her fourth birthday in August of 2017. She is full of energy and curiosity and has an amazingly strong will and compassionate heart. Her bright smiles and hilarious facial expressions are some of the highlights of every day! Nora loves playing outside, reading, playing with her little brother, and making new friends everywhere she goes.
Our son, Titus, was born here in L’viv in June, 2016. He adored his sister right from the start and makes it his mission in life to crawl fast enough to catch her. Although he looks almost identical to some of Nora’s baby pictures, we see a very different personality developing in this little guy! He’s also much more attached to Mama, while Nora is a Papa’s girl all the way. We’re so thankful for these incredible gifts!
