All is well here.
Parents, let me first say what a honor and privilege it is to lead and serve with your kids. They are all truly amazing! To see young people serving with humility and responding to adversity with prayer and wisdom from above is so encouraging.
Let me update you on the spiritual and physical condition of the team.
Spiritual- We meet every morning at 8:00 for a one hour devotional time. The study of the Book of James and the the rich prayer time together is the foundation of team unity. We are unified in mind and spirit! Please continue to pray, fatigue will begin to set in for some next week. To help prevent this , a rest day is planned.
Physical- All the guys on the team are suffering with severe allegies and head colds. We have medication and i pray we will feel better soon. I must say, it has not slowed anyone down. We just carry a lot of tissue with us. I am thankful it has not affected the girls at all. Please pray for their protection in this! (Vova Pochapsky has suggested taking all the guys to the sauna and beating us with hyssop branches. He said it will cure us instantly! I think we will pass on this.)
Michael and Chance will give complete updates on their camps later today. It is the final day for Borkiv and Gorodishue. Many parents will be attending the closing ceremony. The village pastors will be sharing the gospel. Pray for the hearts of the kids and parents, for clarity and boldness!
Other prayer needs- New camps start tomorrow (Thursday) Pray for the villages of Kuliga and Gromatska
- Vinnitsa Christian Orphanage appreciation dinner and service project- on Friday the team will complete a service project at the orphanage and then the team will prepare dinner for the staff and children and serve them. ( Matt. 5:16)
- Men and Women conferences this weekend - Biblical roles is the topic. I will teach the men and Gail Burris will teach the women
Will post more later.
Have a great day in the Lord,
P.S. Michel Norman asked about the picture of Ryan sharing with Igor. We believe Angels are rejoicing in heaven over his decision to repent
