I’m writing to ask you to pray. There are SO MANY candidates. There are SO MANY positions and agendas. I can’t imagine that it will be easy for the citizens of Ukraine to make an informed choice that they can depend on. That makes it a difficult decision for them.
We decided to take Micah with us. 1. He loves to go out. 2. He rarely gets to out with just us (Mary and I). 3. We thought it would be good for the people there to see him.
This morning I sat down get some pictures from our former website (back when we were trying to keep two sites going) and read the post I wrote on our one year anniversary of our move to Ukraine. It made me grateful all over again.
We have been invited to speak at a conference in Kyiv for people who care for orphans (with special needs). We are kind of an oddity, I guess. But that’s okay. It gives us a chance to talk to people that we would never be able to talk to otherwise.

If you’ve never been in a foreign country and had you passport stolen of even lost, there’s no way I could explain what it’s like. But thankfully I’m officially a person again. The next step is getting a duplicate of my permanent residency ID. It’s several weeks away still but we are heading in the …
It’s a beautiful Fall day in the city today. Windy, brisk and crisp. And that could only mean one thing! It’s time for Hot Chocolate on the street! Happy Autumn. Blessing the Name of the Lord!
I walked out the door yesterday morning and Fall had arrived. I mean basically overnight. One of things we love about Ukraine is that there are four, distinct seasons. And they change quickly.
