Ukraine Team 2010 Days 3 and 4
Greetings from Krasnoarmeysk.. Saturday was a walk in the park, literally. In the morning we took the kids to the park for a morning of Bible lessons, crafts and games.
You won't believe, but after a long period of extreme heat, the kids actually got chilly after a while. The weather has been very bearable, though it is still August mostly. While the guys were finishing up with crafts (yes the guys did the crafts!) and playing games with the kids, the ladies went to have a study with the church ladies.
In the afternoon, Tony and David met with Sasha the minister, to discuss matters of his ministry. Last night we were delighted to be visited by Tamara, after another delightful supper prepared by Lydia.
Sunday, a beautiful cloudless and cool morning began with everyone rushing to get ready for Sunday's service (you know, just like at home) we gathered for worship with Sasha delivering the morning lesson. After the service everyone enjoyed a good period of fellowship during a light lunch prepared by the ladies of the congregation. After lunch Melva led the lesson period of study for the kids, which kept her, Pat and Valia busy for quite some time. While this was taking place, the men of the congregation met with Tony and David for a meeting at the park. They discussed various subjects and questions regarding how some of the difficulties concerning housing and matters of church discipline might be handled.
I failed to mention that yesterday afternoon, the ladies met to stuff teddy bears and get them ready for new faces.
I know the reading leaves you breathless....but let me leave some news for our next writing. I will say thank you all for your participation in our blog, and for those of you who only read it. If I can figure out how to write this from this end you can also write from your end...so please join in.
To my family I want to say thank God for the good news from Kathy and pray it will continue to be so. Thanks to eveyone who takes their valuable time to keep in touch.
May God continue to bless you until our next copy.
P.S. - By the way, Kostya is behind the camera on the photo which is why he is invisible.
Like the picture, but you will have to get one with Koysta in it!!
That must be Roman's and Era's son?
He is getting to be a good looking young man!
Sounds liked everything is going good! I'm impressed that the men did the crafts...and you have been holding back all these years! :)
Glad you got a visit from Tamara. I can taste Lydia's cooking now, did she get some suggestions from Tamara on cooking for Tony!
Miss you guys! Continue the good job up encouraging the wonderful brethren there.
What a good picture. Teresa was finally successful in getting in touch with Kevin. So, That is good. I will try today and tomorrow to check on them. David had his game Saturday in Murfreesboro by the landfill. A stinky time was had by all. Yesterday we (David and I) hiked w/the boyscouts about an hour and a half, so a sweaty time was had by all. Everything else is "about like common".
It sounds like you all are busy but having fun.
Hello, Ukraine team!Post a Comment
I have been following your activities on the blog. Miss being there with everyone this year. Give Tamarra a hug for me. She is a special lady. Hopefully she can come to church this week.
Everything here is fine. Hot but fine. This week the highs will be lower, maybe staying in the 80's. wooo!
Love you all, Buddy
