Much to be thankful for!!!!!!

This year our apple trees were so laden with apples that the apples on the branches looked like grape clusters!!  Ruslan was so in awe that we took family pictures under them and as you can tell from the pictures above he was basking in the joy of harvesting and confusing me for one of the apples!


We have been doing follow up visits each month at each of the places we did camps this past summer and we are thrilled to share that we have a constant 30-40 kids that attend each time!  It’s not too often we get Ruslan to be in a skit and this time he joined in and did an awesome job showing that Jesus can make beautiful exchanges for the ways that we feel – giving us self-worth, joy, wholeness, feeling needed and being saved in Him!!

Our friends from Dental Hope Ukraine came along to the village where we have Kids Time and also in Mohyliv at our Crisis Center.  They were able to treat more than 15 kids and adults! Thankful to them for blessing so many with treatment they otherwise would not be able to afford.  

Looks like we might have a future dentist in our family! Franya so enjoyed being able to assist all day with the dental team.

The Crisis Center in Mohyliv continues to be such a source of help to so many especially during such an unstable time in our world.  Thank you to all those who continually help by sending clothing, diapers, food and other supplies for families and individuals in needs.

We have some very exciting news as our famiy is about to change in size! We are taking two children into our family named Katya, 11 and Yura, 6.  We don’t know too much information about them so we will write more in the near future, but we ask for your prayers as we prepare for their arrival and then adapting into our family.  

Prayer Requests:
– Katya and Yura’s documents and their preparation for joining us.
– Our kids as they adjust to new members of the family.
– Ruslan and I – for wisdom and strength as we navigate adding to our family and the needs of Katya and Yura.
– Health for our family.
– Finances – as our needs are growing along with our growing children!
– Kids Time outreaches
– Food Bags – We would like to be able to bless 150 families with a holiday food bag at $25/bag
