Winding Down

We now have less than a week left before we return home to Bila Tserkva, Ukraine. We are excited to be going back, but we have had a great time with all of our friends and family while in the United States. We were especially blessed by our time at Calvary Chapel Visalia where they invited us to share about what God is doing in Ukraine. We are so grateful for the time of fellowship we had and for all the new friends we made. Tomorrow we will be attending our last Calvary SLO service before returning home. It will be a baptism service on the beach in Avila.

Pastor Bob Grenier and Edna
Pastor Bob signing his new book for Edna called, "A Common Miracle".

On Friday we made a trip to visit Edna's father's brother, John. Uncle John had lots of animals for the boys to play with and we had a good time learning more about the Jewish faith. Uncle John speaks Hebrew and is also an Israeli citizen.

Uncle John in the Israeli Army
Being an Infantry soldier, this is my favorite picture of Uncle John when he was in the Israeli Army. He fought in the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
