Tuesday's Gone

This is Phil "the thrill" reporting again for the Mt. Juliet Ukraine Team. Right now the rest of the crew is preparing for the Vacation Bible School at the Orphanage in Macheevka.

Yesterday was a good day. Andrew spoke at the UBI (Ukrainian Bible Institute) at 9:00 a.m. After this, we met at the ladies' apartment to prepare for VBS at Macheevka and to eat lunch. We really expanded our horizons by eating good ole Mickey D's.
The van was there to pick us up at 11:30. Our VBS was supposed to start at 1:00. p.m.

There were 45 children from 1st-5th grade assembled in the library at Macheevka. Many of them remembered David, Susan, and andrew from last year. They were all very excited to see us.
We divided into 4 classes and spent an hour teaching them about Creation. We did not get to do the activities we had planned because they had to go to lunch.
Andrew met with the director of the orphanage. There had been miscommunication. She thought we intended to do a one day VBS so she had canceled some classes for us.
After meeting with Andrew, she decided that she would adjust their class schedule so we can come each day this week and be with the children from 2:15-4:15 or so. Can you imagine a principal in the U.S. doing this? We are very excited about this opportunity and fortunate.

We leave at 1:00 today to start classes there at 2:15.

We left the orphanage yesterday from Macheevka around 3:15 and arrived at the church building in Proletarski at 4:00. There was a little boy there, Veecha, who was waiting on the front steps for us. We were told that his mom was sending him to a boarding school, but he was back. He left his house at 3:00 because he told his mom he did not want to miss the beginning of VBS. He is around 10 years old.

We started the VBS in Proletarski at 5:00. We nearly doubled our attendance from Monday, with 14 children in attendance. We opened with singing led by Andrew and Vana. After this, Susan McCulloch taught the children a lesson about Achan, with Masha interpreting. David Fleming also assisted in the lesson and Pat Huddleston and Sissy Pickler helped with a fun craft.

They broke for a snack, provided by Buddy, then Phil and Andrew led them in a game of the 'Love Web', where you pass the yarn to each other, saying what you like about that person.

We closed with singing and Andrew presented some of the donated toys to children who had either brought a guest or had been there two days in a row. This was a big hit.

One of the children brought their mom to VBS, and she was very interested in everything being taught. Both her and her mother sat with the boys during VBS.

We had a short meeting afterwards as a team to discuss the next day.

Then we walked about 10 or 15 minutes to Lynn Allison's house, where she had prepared some wonderful spaghetti. We enjoyed a great time of fellowship, laughing and talking together.

She presented Andrew with his 2nd Birthday cake. He's really racking up. We all sang to him in English, then the translators sang to him in Russian.

Around 10:00, we went our separate ways, taking taxi's back to our apartments.

It was another wonderful day. We are staying busy doing the Lord's work.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and thoughts.
We love you and miss you.
Much love,
phil and the Mt. Juliet crew

Good Morning,

It sounds like you all are having a great experience and lots of cooperation from the people there.

As far as I know everything is somewhat status quo here. It is starting to cool off at night and about 80 in the day time.

I love you all and especially David. Tell him I miss him very much but I'm glad he can be there and helping teach the children.

Take care, be safe and stay healthly.

Love,
Melva

Hi Daddy! Sorry left you a message yesterday but went all the way to the bottome of the comments. Oh, well consider the source. Called Grandma today 3 times and finally got to talk to her. Interrupted lunch, she was having roast, and said it was good. She could hear me really well and sounded pretty good except for a cough.

Momma is doing ok - bout like common!!! lol.

Ken, Sarah and David are all doing ok tooo.

It sounds like you all are getting a lot accomplished -- keep up the good work.

We love ya~ Tina
 
Phil & team,
I'm glad that everything is going well and that more children are coming. It sounds like things are going well. That's great! We are thinking about you and praying for you.

By the way, I saw that ya'll were getting sports updates, but did you hear that Steve Irwin, the Australian crocodile hunter, died on Sunday or Monday. He was 44 years old. He was killed by the poison of a stingray. The stingray got him in the heart.

We love you & miss you. (By the way, Mom & Dad are checking your blog daily)

Paula, Matt & Sophie
 
Missed all of you at worship service. Keep you in our prayers.
 
I just located the comment link, but I have been following your work almost daily. I am Sissy's cousin from Virignia. We are praying for your work personally, with our Sunday School class, and on our church-wide prayer list. When Becky showed Zach your names on the prayer list this past Sunday, he remembered you from last summer as Belle's parents. Thanks so much for alerting us to this blog. We continue to pray for your ministry and safe return.
Love,
Ginny & Josh Ham
