Face Paint

I took these of the kids in the orphanage down the street from our house today. They loved getting their faces painted! It's been really encouraging visiting these little ones lately. They seem to be grasping the gospel more than ever. God is working, please keep praying for them!

Congrats Curt!

Koren's little brother is getting married to this great girl! Her name is Reene and we could not be happier that the Lord has brought these two together! Congratulations you two and welcome to the family Reene!

Evidence Of Grace


There is a group of gals in our church that are headed out this weekend to go visit an orphanage in Bila Tserkva. Its a city about 3 hours drive from ours. From what I hear, the conditions at the orphanage are pretty bad. The group is going to be buying things like toilet paper, soap, and toothbrushes for the children.

What brings me so much joy from this whole thing is that there are five young women that want to use this weekend to serve overs. To see them wanting to use their own money and time to demonstrate to 100 kids that God loves them. It makes me so happy to see the grace of God at work in their lives! These gals are an encouragement to me! I am so thankful for what I see God doing in the lives around me!

Please pray for their time. Pray for these little ones that will hear and see the gospel this weekend!

Vlada, Olya, Marina and Valya.
You can't see them in the pic, but there are about 7 big bags of stuff for the kids the gals hauled on the bus with them.

Our Oksana joined the group a little later.
( We all can't get off work early, Huh Oksana?! )

This was taken at the same orphanage a few months ago.


They sent me this pic on their way there. They got to try the new Domino's pizza in Kiev.

Radical

This video made my heart pound and my hair stand up. I need to get Mr. Platt's book! This is such a good word to the church, not only for the U.S. but for the whole world. I needed to hear it! I believe its message with all my heart!





Here's another one...


"When Jesus is being twisted into our image... The reality is that we're not actually worshiping the Jesus of the Bible, instead we are worshiping ourselves."
