I can't believe that it's been six years since we arrived in Ukraine. As a family, we've grown 150%. We've also seen a lot of progress and growth in the church both in Ukraine and throughout the CIS Field! We learned quickly that both ministry - and life - happens slower in Ukraine than what we were used to, and language acquisition had not been as fast as we hoped. However, God is faithful, and over the years we've learned to both love the people, where we are ministering, and figure out how to live here fairly well.
Thank you also to those who have supported us over the years - some from the very beginning! But we could not have made it without prayers, giving and words of encouragement from all of you!
We're still on Home Assignment...
Although there have been some harder times throughout this trip (as predicted of traveling with small children), we are so thankful to all the churches and communities that we met with in the last two months. We have not named them all for public recognition because it would be too long of a list to count - 33 churches/groups so far! But thank you to everyone who we have met and who hosted us!
