Today was another great day. All the children who came yesterday came back today and we had 3 new faces!
The theme today was how do we cry out to God and how we listen to him. The children seemed to really understand and engage in the sessions especially when making string telephones and taking the opportunity to make a personal response! Our relationships with the children are growing and communication barriers are being broken, even with some them trying to speak English to me.
This evening all members of the joint mission team had the opportunity to go to a Ukrainian Castle! We then shared a meal together at pizza restaurant. The scenery, food and company were all amazing! I feel blessed to be a part of a brilliant mission team who are passionate about sharing the word of God.
We are prepared for another busy, exciting day tomorrow when we will look at how God is a ‘Great Big God!’
Please continue to pray that we can continue to build relationships with the children and that we are able to rest well in the evenings and be prepared for the next coming days.
Today was a great day. The sun wasn’t in “destroy” mode, so we managed to survive all the games.
I made a new friend today, called Misa. He was new to the whole group, but after all the activities, specifically asked Tanya to translate that he “will come back tomorrow”.
We also played Russian Pool, which consists of MASSIVE BALLS and tiny pockets, and had the most amazing home-made drink, which consisted of mint, lemon (need I say more?).
The castle (Khotyn Fortress) was quite thought-provoking, mainly due to the horrors downstairs!! It consisted of extreme torture devices that must have been used to either interrogate prisoners or for some twisted form of “entertainment”.
It made us wonder if Christians were ever persecuted in devices like these…. 🙁
And how would we face such extreme torture? Our prayers go to those crying out to God today as they are tortured.
