Ukraine, here we come!!! 06/28/2010
Today. June 28th. We. Are. Excited.
Roughly four months ago, a group of young people came together with one desire: to share the hope of Christ with other people. We made goals. We held fundraisers. We prayed together.
Today marks our last day at home before departure. It is amazing to look back and reflect on how God has been providing for us over this time of preparation. He blessed us in our meetings, our car washes, and our individual lives. We believe He will continue to be with us throughout our time in Ukraine.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped our team to this day. To our parents who blessed us from the beginning. To Missionary Gospel Church for believing in our team. To MGC Youth for praying for us and sharing in our vision for greater things. To every single person who came out to our car washes. To everyone who sacrificed their time and finances. We could not do this without you.
There are many people we can thank for helping us, but we understand that ultimately everything is sustained by God, and is for God’s glory. We depart America with that in our hearts—it is all for the glory of God, for Him to be known among the nations.
We ask that you keep us in your prayers. That is the most you can do for us.

*We will make it our effort to keep this blog updated during our time in Ukraine. However, this depends on how much internet access we will have, if any.
