Kids club
Some of the neighoborhood kids eating with us. (Joshua's good friends)
Jason, Jessica & Joshua painting the gas pipes that come into our house. The Lord worked a miracle for us to get gas to our house so quickly. The gas company first said that it would be next summer before we could have gas connected to our house.

All gas pipes in Ukraine must be painted bright yellow according to code.

Back to blogging

Yes, some of you are wondering where I have been and what happened to all my promises to keep my blog up-to-date. Well, I have been in the land of no internet. Let me correct that. We had a very (I mean VERY) slow internet connection. And then Jason and a few of his friends tried to get something working faster and then it quit altogether. So now we are finally back on line and it seems to be working much faster(keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer).
What have I been doing in the mean time? Oh, a lot of things and I will try to catch you up a bit. We have been working very hard to get our house(remolded barn) in working order before winter hit with furry. Well, I think it hit. Last Sunday we had our first real snow fall that stayed and it was so cold that no one came to church or Sunday School. Our transalators and their two children came to Sunday school and in church there were 5 besides our family. What a way to start off winter. It has been cold, but I have no idea what degrees in F. I'll have to figure that out for you later.

Hello from our village in Ukraine

Hey, I am alive and I have been reading some of your post. But I have tried 3 times to publish a post and let you know how things are and none have been successful. Sorry about that. Jason is gone right now trying to work on getting a better connection for our internet. You would laugh if you could see me right now. Jason told me that our internet works better if you put the cell phone on your head while you are online. Well, I am trying it. But I think that it works better with Jason. Jessica said that I have too much hair (Jason doesn't have that problem) for it to work on my head. Right now I am going to see if this will post, and if it does I'll try some pictures. So long for now.
