Ukraine Team 2010 Day 6
Hello MJ from Ukraine,
It's hard to believe that tonight is our last night in Kras. It has been a great week! Today has been a little warm but not bad. Melva taught the children's class today and did a great job! We had 14 kids come today and then a little boy in the park joined in with our group. We had another good lunch and after that Melva and I gave the ladies their gifts. We worked on the beautiful cards that Sheri Kibbe sent. I asked the ladies about coming and making cards with the materials that were left after we leave. Ira volunteered to head that up. Many teddy bears have been made on Saturday and Monday. Our thanks to Patty Willoughby and all the other ladies who work with the Teddy Bear ministry. They will make many children happy in Ukraine. Tony preached tonight and he did a great job too (not that I'm predjudice or anything). After service tonight, the ladies had a "sweet table" for all to enjoy. Lydia made a very delicious "homemade" cake. We had planned to take Lydia (the lady we are staying with)along with our translators out to dinner, but Lydia wanted to prepare dinner. Tamara, her husband, Sasha, Julia, & Lera, along with all of us will have dinner in about an hour. Last night Tamara had us over for tea (it was much much more than tea) and this was AFTER dinner at Lydia's:-)
Tomorrow we will leave for Donetsk to spend the day and night with Lynn & Viktor. Wishing each of you a pleasant evening. We appreciate your prayers and remember you in ours.
Wow! You will have to bring back some recipes. It sound like you all have had great meals. I'm really glad that everything is going well and there will be lots of teddy bears for them to love.
Have a safe journey to Donetsk.
PS:Talked to Kevin yesterday and it sound like Kathy is in a lot of pain. Please keep her in your prayers.
Glad to hear that you all are having a great trip. Take care and we hope you have continued success with your mission and continue to have safety as you travel.
I see Koysta is the same helpful, "load me down so you don't have to carry anything"! Such an awesome translator!
What a great looking group of kids!
You should have known that Tamara would have more than tea! They are such gracious hostesses. That was really sweet of Lydia to invite Tamara and her husband and Sasah, Julia and Lera also. I know you all had a great evening and definitely went to bed full!!
Give Lynn and Viktor our love when you see them, enjoy your visit in Donetsk and at Proletarski!
Pray for your safe trip home and a great time in Munich.
Love and miss you all,
