Nikolaev, Ukraine 17-18 November, 2011

Thursday, we met with Luda and Stepan for a bible study and some singing. That evening we met and ate with Olya.
Friday, we enjoyed the market and tasted some Ukrainian pastries (so delicious). After walking around a bit, we decided to let Isaac play at the playground by our apartment- we met some kids and visited with them. Two of them spoke very little English, despite the language barrier Isaac was able to communicate with them. We played hacky sack, volleyball, and sat with them for awhile to visit. It was an amazing time for us!
We were able to meet with Kesha and Nadia- we had a great visit and found out that they are expecting a child - very exciting. It is our prayer that they pursue God not only for their souls, but for their future child.

Please pray for us, we will be meeting at the boys' home tomorrow afternoon and with Olya.
Lord willing, we will meet with Kesha and Nadya again before we leave.
Enjoy the photos.

Mike, that is a most uplifting report! We have the utmost confidence in the work you, Andrea and Isaac have been doing for the Lord during these two weeks. It is a big help to us since we miss everything and everyone in Nikolaev very much as you know. Nadya and Kesha look like future parents! :) We hope to see them soon.
