This past weekend was pretty busy for us. There are 3 couples in Kiev visiting right now so we were spending time with them. Steve and Dawn Sparks are in town for a vision trip. It was fun to meet Steve and see Dawn again! We had team worship Sunday afternoon and Paul Alexander preached on forgiveness. It was encouraging and nice to sing and hear preaching in English! Then, we took Bill and Martha Acker to the train station to catch their train to L'viv. They were also visiting us from Wisconsin for a vision trip. Gotta run. Off to lunch with some friends from English Club. Bye!

We're back from our trip to Kherson over the weekend. We had a great time visiting the Churches in Kherson and Syropinsk and spending time with the MTW missionaries there. Here are some pictures.

Today we successfully purchased train tickets for our trip to Kherson next weekend. Kherson is a city in southern Ukraine and we are going to visit the MTW team and Church there. I was a little nervous that we weren't going to be able to buy the tickets by ourselves, but we did. Kristen and I both were on short-term trips to Kherson about 5 years ago so it will be fun to see how things have changed.

Last night was Jon's last English Club for the summer. They are going back to the State's for the summer so we had a dinner banquet for he, Allison, and Natalie before English Club. There was a record turnout with 26 people! We had alot of fun hearing a story from each person about a time when they got completely wet by accident. Then we played a rousing game of 20 questions.
