Church Restart Coaching
We have committed to working with one of our churches in Kyiv over the next 3 years to restart. Over the last couple weeks, we started training and coaching with David Hayes through new Church Specialities on how to do this. We are building a prayer team that will commit to pray for this church every day. If you would like to be a part of this team, please reply to this email and let us know.
We had a short home assignment in January. While the weather was threatening to snow us in, we did get to a few churches, spent some time with family and made it to the CIS Partnership meeting in Phoenix, AZ.
Ellendale W&W Team
We came back and headed into hosting the Ellendale W&W team. They came to help work on the Kazatin church building. Joseph spent the 2 weeks they were here with them in Kazatin, while Ree stayed with the kids in Kyiv.
Elijah turned 1! He is a very active boy who loves his blue blanket, bothering his sister, and climbing.
- Please pray for the church restart in Kyiv. Right now we are in the planning stages and it takes a lot of wisdom and discernment as we follow the vision God is giving us for this church. If you would like to commit to regularly praying for this church, please reply to this email and let us know.
- Please pray for Joseph as he attends the first Nexus training in Ukraine this week. Nexus training is a program to train up youth ministers on the Eurasia Region. Also pray for Ree and the kids would will remain at home.
