News from Ukraine — Quiet around the house today

All of our houseguests are gone.  Robin and Kathryn made it home after an uneventful trip home to America.  It seems so quiet around here!

The news from Ukraine today is pretty non-exciting!  We resumed regular Russian lessons today.  Mary and I left the house at 8:15 to catch our bus.  It is kind of good to get back into a normal routine, but it is kind of weird just being us in the house.  At the height of the visitors, we had 39 people here.  WHAT!!  No wonder it was so loud sometimes!  We have had guests for the last nearly six weeks.  So much happened during those weeks that we are praying about.  SO MANY ministry opportunities came up and we have so much to think and pray through.  

We have some really exciting news that we can’t fully share yet, but we have a new team member who will be here with us beginning the early fall.  That’s all I can say about it right now, but we are pretty excited to see what God is doing!
