Dema Kohen, Pastor of KidMin

Favorite Ice Cream: Chocolate peanut butter (Cold Stone Creamery's Mud Pie Mojo is the best!)

Favorite childhood memory: My dad teaching me to ride my first "grown-up" bicycle when I was 8. I felt loved, protected and led. I remember wanting to scream at the top of my lungs, "Look, world! I have a Dad!"

What I wanted to be when I grew up: As a young child I wanted to be a truck driver and go to the West (since only truck drivers were allowed to travel outside of the USSR boundaries). I was fascinated with the life in non-communist countries and wanted to see it for myself. As a teenager I was dreaming of becoming a translator. This dream came to reality. Starting at the age 18 I began translating (From English to Russian) and haven't stopped since!
