"Decision"

“Decision” was the theme at our camp for adults with disabilities this year.  Forty-seven people with disabilities and 20 of their family members joined our team of volunteers for 6 days of rest, fellowship, small and large group Bible studies, and various activities.  We used road signs and rules to name our teams and open the theme of each day’s…

Rehab Update

We had a flurry of activity in our rehab center over the last few months and have now officially closed the center until the end of the summer.  This week our team is devoted to making final preparations for the camps for adults and children with disabilities that begin next Tuesday.  After camps, all of our staff has vacation time before we resume rehab at the end…

Summer kicks off…

It’s been way too long since my last post and so much has happened that it will be difficult not to overwhelm this post with information and pictures!  In mid-May, my mom came for a month-long visit.  It was a wonderful time of getting to introduce her to our lives, our friends, our work, our church, and our…

Our Rehab Center Turns 8!

Earlier this month we celebrated the 8th anniversary of our rehabilitation center! Some of our current and former patients gathered with their families and our staff for an afternoon of celebration in the park.  God gave us a beautiful day to spend together in His creation.  We enjoyed shish kabobs, played volleyball, and fellowshipped together.  Patients shared about when and…

Christ if Risen, He is Risen Indeed!

Another blast of winter greeted Ukraine during the weekend of Palm Sunday, making it seem more like Christmas should be approaching than Easter!     But the weather improved throughout the week and we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord last Sunday with beautiful spring weather!  Like several other eastern European countries, Ukraine follows a different calendar, so Easter typically lands on a…

Still here!

I know this post is long overdue…sorry about that!  Just like your lives, mine is constantly moving and there always seems to be something else I should or could be doing.  But I have “thought” about writing on multiple occasions if that counts for anything.  I’ll do my best to catch you up on the…

Christmas in Ukraine…Part 2

While Christmas may already seem distant in America, we are still in the Christmas season here in Ukraine.  Christmas day was this past Wednesday, January 7th, but Christmas activities and decorations remain until at least the 14th.  January 14th is “Old New Year” and I must be honest and say I don’t really know what that means, except that the holidays aren’t…

Why the stem cell policy is wrong

CHICAGO (BP)–President Obama kept at least two campaign promises March 9 when he signed a bill authorizing the expenditure of tax-dollars for embryo-destructive stem cell research. Many have been surprised that it has taken so long for him to follow through on the first promise, the federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. Throughout the…
