Document Chase: The Peace of God

By Chris Malone | Oct 28, 2014 | 2 Comments

Philippians 4:6-7 is a great verse.   But I have to admit, it’s so hard to live by.  I mean, in reality, who doesn’t want the “peace of God.”  Vines describes it as “sense of rest and contentment consequent thereon”.  That sounds good to me

Decision 2014

By Chris Malone | Oct 25, 2014 | Comments Off on Decision 2014

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.

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.

Our trip to the refugee center with the students got off to a rather rocky start.  Well, kind of.  We left the school for our 10 minute drive to the center in 6 cars.  I was the last car in the group and was following – since I had no idea where I was going.  At all.

The weather has been incredible.   Highs in the high 60s and low 70s.  You just don’t get any better than that in Ukraine – in October!!  They say (who is “they”, anyway?) that this means the winter is going to be unbearable.  Well, we’ll find out.  For now, we will just enjoy the wonderful weather while we can.

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 […]
