“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Ukraine Here We Come!
We are so blessed. We will be going to Ukraine for a short term mission trip in September. We will be able to visit with Papa Dima and his family, and Mr. Hal Tait.
The focus of our trip will be to visit the orphanages that Dima teaches at on a regular basis and visit the TB Sanitarium and hopefully the Infirm and Older Persons home.
Dima sent a couple of pictures of an Elderly lady and my heart was so touched by those pictures.
I can barely contain my excitement, at the thought of going once again to Ukraine.
We left our hearts there 2 years ago and have longed to go back.
We know that all is in God's timing, and that the girls will be well taken care of in our absence.
Eventually, we will take them with us, but not this time for this occasion.
As you think of it, please hold us up in your prayers.
A few people have asked about contribuitons:
If you would like to contribute to the missions trip fund, which will go to purchase bibles, clothing, school supplies, shoes, socks, blankets, adult pajamas, slippers, etc, you can send a donation to:
Community Bible Chapel
418 E. Main Street
Richardson TX 75081
In the memo area put: "Miscellaneous missions: Ukraine Trip 2008"
Most of all, we covet your prayers.
Right now, pray that we can find cheap airline tickets. :)
I am probably going to start a new blog specifically for Ukraine Missions, but need some time to pray and discuss it with Mike and our church leadership.
And SEE some of YOU In UKRAINE!
