On the road again...

There isn't much rest around here!  We made it safely back to Ukraine and the kids arrived back to their orphanage and then after a couple days rest, were headed out to a camp on the sea where they will finish up their summer.

I too am off for our final camp of the summer!  I leave in the morning for the Kalinensko orphanage in the Kherson region.  This will be my 3rd summer with this group of children, so I'm excited to see them all again and reconnect with the girls who I began relationships with last year.   I have to say I'm still a bit exhausted from the trip to the US- so please pray I have the energy needed to pour more into these sweet kids.

2010 camp in Kalinensko

We've already had a lot of changes with our team who will be serving at this camp- so please keep us in your prayers as we sort through the various responsibilities of who will be doing what and ultimately that we will be effective in our ministry with the kids.  Also pray for unity and understanding among us- as there will be 15 of us living in a two room house! If that doesn't say community living....I don't know what does! :)

I will look forward to sharing more when I return at the end of the month!

Hard to believe that this is the summer wrap up. Amazing how time always seems to go by so fast...

Life is necessarily about choice management. Each day we get to decide how to live and where we will pour ourselves.

I am struck, this morning, by the glaring contrast of a life lived.

You will go pour the Spirit of Christ into fatherless children. I will go sit in front of a desk and pound at a keyboard.

I really do think it's great what you do and enjoy the chance to live vicarious through your posts.

Have fun with the kids. May they be filled to the brim with God's Spirit!
