Please join us in prayer regarding the Upcoming vote in Ukraine that would BAN International Adoption for good. The vote will take place on June 2.
Ukraine is a wonderful, beautiful country with a negative population growth. I think the government is trying all it can to keep people in Ukraine. The problem is, with so many orphans, there is nowhere for them to go. The statistics are dismal. And for the children with special needs, the future is grim at best.
Please pray that God would have His will. If adoptions are not banned that God would move on hearts to bring orphans into a family. If adoptions are banned, that God would move on the hearts of those who can go and serve orphans in their orphanage setting, from Cradle to Graduation.
There is also RUMOR, don't know if it is true, that foreign residents might be limited to 180 days in country at a time. This will make it very, very hard on missionaries.
I am going to contact our friends and see if they have heard anything. Russia passed a similar law a year ago and many missionaries had to leave. Many went into Poland, Ukraine and Romania.
God is in Control.
“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.”

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)
