We arrived at Kiev around 8:20 this morning and headed to breakfast @ Arizona BBQ. They cater to the American palate as the menu was in English. Eggs, Sausage, Beacon and Pancakes.
We split up into 3 appartments – Yuri and Bill – Jerry, Brad and Michael – Ty, Ed and Jim. We rested and showered and headed out @ 1:00pm to the orphanage.
Great visit to the orphanage. Kids were excited and very open to being loved on today. We started by playing soccer and moved to basket ball with some of the boys while Jerry used his talent of making baloon animals. Then we broke out the bouncy balls and Chocolate. Big Hit!!
We were blessed to have spent 2hrs with the kids. Matthew 18:3-5
Yuri took us to a late lunch @ UNO pizza one of his favorite restaurants in Kiev followed by sight seeing. We are planning on shopping for our loved ones in the morning.
We went to a Memorial Park called Motherland which pays tribute to Ukrainians who lost their lives in World War II. The Motherland statue is similar to Lady Liberty. There were tanks and planes and other military equipment on display.
We are turning in early in preparation for tomorrow’s travel.
