A Visit from Will and Ira

Ira and Edna

On Monday, our friends Will and Ira came to visit us for a few days. Will and Ira are missionaries from Nizhyn. We had not seen them since Christmas time, so it was really nice to see them again. It was good to relax and fellowship with friends. We spent our time visiting Oleksandria Park, the amusement park at the town center, and of course cooking and eating in the kitchen. Ira showed me how to cook a new meal that turned out quite delicious. I am determined to make it myself now.

Thank you Will and Ira for coming out to spend time with us. It was really encouraging to have you guys here. We look forward to having you here again!

Early this morning, Greg and Dominic headed out to western Ukraine with a group from Chernihiv to assist the flood victims in the Chernivtsi oblast. A large part of western ukraine was devastated by flooding. Many people have lost everything. There is a huge need there to repair and rebuild. Please pray for their safe travels and for God to lead and direct them. Also, pray for opportunities for them to share about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thanks!
