More Help from Pryluky

In the Park
Vlad, Zhana, Edna, Yana, Tanya, Nastya, Joshua, Max, and Dominic

This weekend a group of people came from the Pryluky Calvary Chapel to help us again (Vlad and his wife Zhana, Yana, Max, and Tanya). This time we focused on ways to make worship at our church better and the planning of our playground restoration project that we will complete this month. It was a pleasure to have them in our home. We had a good time just being mutually encouraged.

We were able to get three guitars restrung and in good working order, have a Friday night Bible study with our neighbors, get most of the planning for materials for the playground done, and take a long walk in the park (Vlad also spent a lot of time working on our computer. Thanks Vlad!). We ended our weekend by having Max and Yana (who are brother and sister) lead worship in our church for us. When church was over, they returned to Pryluky with one less person. We are excited to have Tanya staying with us for the next month to help serve in the church here and help us out with ministry. She's definitely an answer to prayer.

Max and Joshua
Of course we let Max and Joshua have a little fun before going back home.

I miss these brothers and sisters in Christ SOOOO much! Lord willing, we will be able to see them all soon as well as you if the Lord sends us back to Ukraine. Much love, Elysia

It's always fun with Max around. ;)

Thanks Elysia, we are looking forward to the day when all of you can return. We're praying for you.
