Ukraine Support

Wow. That is all I can think of to say at the moment.

Corey and I sent out support letters two weeks ago hoping for prayers in regards to our Ukraine trip, as well as monetary support if anyone felt lead. I always feel strange asking people for money...seems like I'm always doing it with this trip or that event. However, we knew we were meant to go on this missions trip.

First reason, we couldn't afford it, but BOTH Corey and I got $500 scholarships. Secondly, our $500 deposit was covered. Thirdly, we needed to raise $1,000 in support (or find creative ways to pull that amount from our personal budget), and in the past two weeks alone we have already raised $900! We would be thrilled to give any extra donations over to the Radooga Ministry in Ukraine.

We feel so incredibly blessed. Seriously, what an answer to prayer. A prayer that started with, "a missions trip overseas feels way out of my comfort zone, Lord, but I feel your prompting to pursue it" and now a prayer of, "Lord, you are so good. It is evident you want us to serve the people of Ukraine, even for a short time, but more so learn about You through them. Thank you thank you thank you for making it happen."

So to all those who are supporting us...we appreciate your kindness more than words can express! We're not sure what to expect in Ukraine, but we're willing to learn, be servants, and to let God move through us and the people we work with.

Praise be to Him.

This is SO awesome! It is amazing how God showers money on events he has blessed.
I'm so excited to see why God has sent you over there.
