Beginning in January, Joseph began taking on a few more roles. This means he travels more. He has already added 5 new countries to his list. While he loves the adventure and meeting new people, he misses his girls who haven’t been able to go on every trip with him.
Ree has had her hands full with Hannah. Hannah is growing rapidly, as all babies do, and is already 8 months old. She has been crawling for about a month, just beginning to pull herself up, and finds some way to get into everything she is not suppose to.
Amongst all the political activity this winter in the country of Ukraine, we have been challenged with what it really means to fully trust in God, and not any earthly power. So often we look to government for our security and well-being. But we have been reminded that the kingdom of God does not reside within an earthly government, but through the church.
Now, things are calm in Kyiv and we are very safe, but be in prayer for the eastern side of the country, where there is fighting. We are continually praying for the unity of the Church throughout the CIS in spite of political disagreements.
This summer will be very busy with multiple camps, guests, and navigating the new registration policies in Ukraine. We’re hoping that “the light at the end of the tunnel” will come sometime in September. However, we are excited for all that will happen this summer, the ministries that will take place and the lives that will be changed! Please keep these event and the youth and kids who will attend them in your prayers.
