This photo was just sent to me. I really like it. Its a picture of some of us here in Chernigov that the Lord has brought to be a part of His work. When you are part of a church plant your team dynamics are one of the most important aspects. I am extremely thankful for the people that the Lord has brought from all over to serve Him in this place at this time. Know that this is a very small piece of the church God is using here in this city. But, I only had this one to show you.

Fall's here and we're back in the Podusovka boarding school/orphanage, its right down the street from our house. I say school /orphanage because most of the kids have families that they go home to on the weekends , but there are always a few every weekend that have no place to go. Either they have no parents living or the parents are not able to take care of them. It's for many reasons, but usually alcoholism is to blame. We go each Sunday morning before our church service. We, as in an awesome group of people, that I love being able to do this with, from the church. Even Gavin has started coming to just hang out with the kids. Being able to go into this place and teach the Bible and try to show these kids that they are dearly loved by God is such an opportunity. I'm blessed to be a part of it. Here are a few pictures of this past Sunday. Oh and Podusovka Crew, love you guys! (and we're all missing you Olya!)

We just spent a great week together as a family. We really didn't do much. We visited with friends, spent time at home, went for walks in the woods, and made some fun meals together. We even got a little apple picking in. It was a the best vaction time we've had so far. We are so thankful to God for our family. Here are some random pictures of our week. Just click them to make them larger.
