While Ukrainians are busy (not working) and celebrating the May holidays this week....I'm off to California!! Not typical for me to make a trip to the USA this time of year, but I am finally getting to attend the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit, which happens to be in Los Angeles! This is an annual event that gathers Christian ministries and organizations that are passionate about orphan care and adoption. While there it is a chance to meet, talk, strategize and attend a whole variety of workshops and seminars.
I'm so excited for this opportunity to be surrounded by other like-minded people who are passionate about this topic-- and it's a double bonus that I'll be reunited with several adoptive families I know and other partners in ministry- it will be like a family reunion I am sure! I also will get to hear amazing speakers like Francis Chan and Karyn Purvis-- and I am a huge fan of both!
Excited much? Just a little!!
Can't wait to report back and share what I learn.
