Wow, sorry it's been so long since I last wrote! It's now definitely official that we can leave this Friday to move to Kiev. We got our passports and visas in the mail today!! We weren't really worried as I had heard from the guy who was helping us with the Consulate last week that they were in the mail. But it definitely is nice to have them in hand!
On Sunday our Church had a commissioning service for us and it was a wonderful time to pray and be encouraged by our Church as they send us to Ukraine. I am excited to go to Ukraine and it feels quite real now as we are fully moved out of our apartment and have everything that we are taking to Ukraine packed in 4 suitcases. God has been good to us over the last few years of preparing and we trust in his sovereignty and power to work through us. Thanks for your prayers. Keep at it!
Our flight leaves out of JFK this Friday at 6:30pm and we'll arrive in Kiev at 11:30am on Saturday. We'll keep you updated on our status and will maybe post a few pictures once we arrive. Till then!
