News from Ukraine

Here is an email I just received from Pastor Jeff...

Hello all,

we arrived in Donetsk at 7:15am on Thursday morning. Time is 7 hours later here than there. It is now, 7:00pm here. We had little trouble with the airlines, but almost missed the train due to our connection pastor in Kiev. Will explain more later. Most everyone, except Hui Cha, got some sleep on the train. We arrived at our place for lodging, Donetsk Christian University and got showers then went to lunch at McDonalds. Then to two locations, an orphanage and a social center (sort of like a foster care center) run by the same foundation. The children at the orphanage can be adopted, but the social center can not. We had some fun taking pictures of the kids and then showing them on the digital camera. We talked with the director and chairman of the foundation about special needs, sponsorship, ect. more about this when we get home. We then came back to the DCU and ate dinner at the dining hall. We are all looking forward to a good nights sleep.

God bless from Donetsk.

Pastor Jeff Moore
