Church Picnic Ukranian Style
Traditional Sack Races
A special Ukranian soup cooked from scratch
over an open fire with all fresh ingredients.
It was delicious.
Two sisters who are Pastors wives
Elizabeth from Uzghorod
Angela from Chop with her new baby.
Sherry in a contest to see who can peel a potato, chop an onion and a
pepper in small pieces and slice a loaf of bread the quickest. I won the first round and
then in the final run, I had to make a sandwich for PW and he had to eat
it. My competitors husband chewed faster so she won the contest and the
ribbon. It was great fun.
Two little kids who thought it was fun to
walk in a tent. They rolled it all over the place.
Dads enjoying their little ones
A friendly game of soccer between the men
A few songs before the message
PW preaching a short message on relationships.
He was very funny and everyone was laughing.
The congregation had been encouraged to invite
unsaved friends and there were quite a few in
attendance. He ended the message by presenting
the gospel and telling them what true love was in
the form of the cross. Note the megaphone the translator
is holding. She has a soft voice so they brought this
for her to use while translating.
PW and I with Natalie and Nikola
We ended our day by having dinner with
them at a local pizza shop.
Two more days and we will be home. We are so homesick at this stage and look forward to seeing our family and church family.
We want to thank Pastor Bill and Edie for holding down the fort and going above and beyond the call of duty this time in ministry to our church family. What you do does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. You are the best.
Blessings to you all as you worship tomorrow.
PW and Sherry
