The Donetsk Mentor Retreat has concluded. God richly blessed each of the three sessions and, even though I am a bit tired from speaking and facilitating, my heart is full of peace and thanksgiving. A sincere "Thank You" to all of you who were praying for this event. God responded to these petitions and provided everything that was needed. Please see attached photo - The Kirovsky church of Christ blessed us with the use of their building and fed us a wonderful lunch and dinner. A very big THANK YOU to Arthur Ohanov (The Preacher at this congregation) and the wonderful ladies who worked so hard to feed all of us.
After (hopefully) a good night of rest, Arthur, me, and 3 Mentors will make the hour and a half journey to the orphanage in Snezhnoye. We will give cards and pictures to the sponsored children, share pictures of our 2011 summer mission trip with all of the children, gain as many letters and pictures from all of the children that we can, and give as many children as much heartfelt attention as we can before we begin the journey back to Donetsk.
Have a wonderful day!!
