Flexibility

That is the word needed for mission work. We are having to restructure our schedule tomorrow and Friday to accommodate 2 families that are leaving early. So we will be meeting each morning to finish up the teaching time and they will do their excursions in the afternoons. Today was good. We laughed alot. This morning, Wayne taught on the Fathers Mandate from the Growing Families Class by the Ezzos, and one of the things in that teaching is that Fathers are to embrace their children regularly. It was fun to watch the men during the break, we looked out in the yard and all the dads were hugging their kids and kissing them. PTL for such quick application to the teaching. They have lots and lots of questions. Sure wish our daughter and her husband were here to answer them all. With 5 kids they have lots of experience. But the Lord is directing this and gave us answers that were biblical and seemed to satisfy. Children all over the world are the same and parents struggle with the same issues.

Tomorrow after the meeting, we will meet with a couple Sasha and Lena have asked us to counsel and then we will speak at a local church in the evening on family. The time is going quickly right now and we are so ready to come home. Please pray we stay focused on the work here for the next two days so we give our best to these people.

We also received another invitation to come to a city in Eastern Ukraine. Three pastors who are here want us to come do a city wide meeting on marriage in the spring of 2009,. Please pray with us about all these invitations. The need is so great but time to do it all is not there. We have to hear from the Father on where and when He wants us to go. Thanks
