Today, we’re celebrating Victory Day – like all good Ukrainians do on May 9th. We’re going to Yalta before we fly to Kiev this evening. Tomorrow morning, we fly back to NYC then Nashville.
We “pulled a double” yesterday and really are happy about the work that was completed this week. It’s easy to see God at work on the jobsite, considering the tasks that needed to be finished and the conditions (and tools) we had to work with.
It’s also easy to see God at work in the relationships that are being developed. That has been even more inspiring than the blue roof and the cement floors we finished yesterday. Proverbs 3:5-6 has come to mind over and over and over.
Last night at dinner, Yuri told us a little about how Hope House has arrived to where it is today. It is clear that he has not been making all the decisions on his own. God has been directing the path of Hope House, and we’re just along for the ride by being open to His call. Again, Proverbs 3:5-6 has come to mind over and over and over.
Several times on this trip, we’ve discussed what we think would be helpful to further Hope House. It has been a very interesting conversation. Still, Proverbs 3:5-6 has come to mind over and over and over.
I’m sure we all will have a lot to think about on our flight home tomorrow. Most of which will have nothing to do with the beautiful scenery we have been surrounded by or that we take in today.
