The Bible says that “All good things works together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purposes.”  – Romans 8:28. 

This has been a hard verse for eastern Ukrainian Christians to read. Their lives have been totally disrupted by war and there is no end to the chaos in sight.

The last two years have been so hard for all of us in Ukraine, but this last week I was so blessed as I have been able to meet and am getting to know Christians from eastern Ukraine.  I am seeing first hand how God is shaking up communities and these young people are blessing and encouraging those around them in the new cities they are living in.

Last week I was able to experience a Thanksgiving meal in Ukraine which was put on and prepared solely by Ukrainians!  What fun and what a blessing for a home sick American.

I also was able to start a life skills training series for leaders who are ministering to orphans.

Ukraine is going to be okay.
