Saying Goodbye is Bittersweet

This week has been intense and fun all at the same time. Today we ended our seminar with teachings on parenting. Wayne did an excellent job with the Fathers Mandate followed by 22 Ways Parents Provoke Children to Anger and then finished with Progression of Teen Rebellion and ways to overcome this problem. The teachings originally came from Joe Propri, Wayne Mack and Gary Esso. All of them of course are with Wayne's personal spin but are excellent teachings that touch the hearts of the people.
When we finished the class asked if they could share some things with us and then proceeded to testify on how this week has touched their lives and brought conviction from God. We were very humbled to say the least. They then presented us with the doll that is in the picture below. Please click on the pictures and it will enlarge them for you. We always have mixed emotions when we finish a week of teaching. Because of the nature of our seminars, we have a lot of one on one time with each attendee so we become like family to a degree. This group asked if they could have our email address so they can write us and continue some of the counseling they started. One Pastor from Rivne asked us to come next winter to do a seminar in his church. We will be in touch with him to further those plans.
Tomorrow will be busy and start early. One of the local pastors has requested us to come and spend some time with him so he is picking us up at 9 a.m. and then at 4 we will be traveling to a nearby village to minister to young couples and then have a picnic. Of course the weather has changed and the temperature is going to be in the 60's. We did not bring warm clothes so this will be a challenge. Please pray for the temp to go higher. All things are possible with God.
On the home front, our hot water heater has decided to go south so our moms are having to deal with getting it replaced. Thankfully we had a good plumber we could call.
Have a blessed night and we will try to post again tomorrowThank you to all of you have written us and commented on our posts. When away from home it is nice to hear from those we love. Love to you all. Wayne and Sherry

God is doing so much through you both. I have to say I am proud to be part of your home church and to call you Pastor, mentors, and friends.

Hello Wayne and Sherri. Glad to hear the Lord is moving in you guys over there. Pastor Bill is doing a swell job at teaching us about Isreal then and now. Very interesting.
Missing you both and praying you return home safely.
Love Todd and Regina
