Day 8

PictureUpon arriving at Father’s House this morning, Dr. Roman met us with hugs and introductions. We had missed him on Monday as he had been having tests at the hospital.  As we taught, Patrick noticed Father’s House could use some new bicycles.  After collecting money from the Team, he and the Director went to the mall and purchased 2 new bikes and a new scooter. You can imagine the excitement when they returned and started taking the new bikes out of the car.  Giving can definitely be as much fun as receiving 


The training at Father’s House finished well with a surprise grand finale of a sand tray demonstration by Libbie and Anya (our host from the ILDC) that got everyone excited and asking when is the next training.

In the evening we gathered in our apartment with translators, Mission Partners and friends for pizza and fellowship.  We watched Patrick’s slide show and were entertained by Anya and Vladimir (CCX) one-year-old son, Ivan.  Veronica and Lena showed their singing talents.  Our friends, the Bowens told us about the first Ukrainian Christian Counselors Conference that is coming up very soon.





So what did we accomplish in Kyiv?

  •  Conducted 2 day seminars at Myacoskova (State   Shelter) and Father’s House (Private Christian  Rehabilitation Center).
  •  Provided psychological theory and art therapy directives for 65 case and social workers, psychologists and 1 interpreter.
  •  Provided 32 hours of classroom training

God is moving in the Ukraine- providing hope and healing to people who have endured much and have continued to persevere.  Please continue to pray for His faithful servants and for His will to be done. 



It only takes a touch of Jesus to heal
                    - have courage
                    - take a risk of faith
                    - believe He can do this . .
