Wednesday

Well today was the second day of our seminar and we realized we did not update  yesterday. So we will start with that.  We met Valodya and Oxana for lunch and spent 4 hours with them catching up. Valodya was one of our original interpreters 8 yrs ago. We worked with him until 2 years ago when he went with another organization, but we have remained friends. He will most likely go with us to Zhitomyr next spring to do the interpretations.  We  got back and then met with a couple who wanted counseling. It was  good productive time with this pastor and his wife.  We of course cannot give details but  you can ask God to bless them and help them to obey Him in the marriage. 
Today was fun.  Sherry taught on the role of the woman this morning and then did a short teaching for the single man and 4 women who were present.  This afternoon Wayne taught on Biblical love and then started the teaching on  causes of conflict. We will finish this up on friday morning.  The time has gone quickly and we have seen God do wonderful things.  We also received two invitations to come to other cities to do the seminar. One invitation was to a bible school in Kiev with 1500 students and the other was to a city near the black sea.  Both were issued by Pastors and we are asking you to pray with us to see if this is what God wants us to do.  The need is so great here that we need to discern which invitations are really from God for us to accept.  Tomorrow we will meet with couples who want to talk and we will get some rest in between. God bless you all. 
Oh and thanks to those of you who are making comments and writing us, it really makes the time go faster. We also want to thank the people who gave us money to give away, we have been able to bless several people so far and they are  blown away by the Lords provision for them.  You all are part of what we do in a great way whether you pray or give.

During my devotions a couple days ago I read this from 1 Thes. 1:2-3 and immediately thought of you guys. I've personalized it to both of you.

I always thank God for you and pray for you constantly. As I pray to God about you, I think of your faithful work, your loving deeds, and the enduring hope you have because of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Love, Lisa

Sounds like the Lord is really doing good things! We miss you more each day but are thankful we can share you with the world. ;-)

Hanna sends a special hello and lots of love to you both.

Pastor Wayne & Sherry,
Thankyou for being the hands, feet and lips for those of us whose gifting is to support missions trips. It is always exciting and heart-warming to hear how our great God is working in the lives of those being reached for Him by you. Keep up His good work. Glory to God in the highest!
