Home Safe


Well after 25 hours of traveling, we're home safe. It was a long, uneventful trip. Except for the text we received from Zina while we were on the plane, "I love you Papa and Mama, Zina." Wow. She is beautiful inside and out.
We arrived in Kiev on Sunday morning via the overnight train. The trip back was much better and cooler, so we slept well and for most of the journey. Karen met us at the station and we headed of to church with her. We enjoyed the company of new friends who are living in Ukraine from many different countries, doing God's work. And, of course, a wonderful message by a young pastor from Wisconsin.
We had a great lunch with Karen and did a little more sightseeing before heading back to her apartment to rest up. Later, Karen made a wonderful dinner and we watched one of the dozen movies we brought, but were too busy and tired to see while in Kherson. We slept soundly, knowing we did all that God intended for us and that the girl's registration was ushered along due to our intervention. I enjoyed speaking to all the churches, Bible study groups, and kids during my visit. God used me in a way that I never thought possible and I want to continue my new-found gift.
