Just what I was thinking. . .

"During announcements at the beginning of the service, I called attention to the list on the back of the bulletin of the missionaries our church supports. Notice how many times you see Ukraine in the list. Twenty years ago, the idea of Christian missionaries openly preaching the gospel and planting churches in any part of the USSR would have been unthinkable. But, in His providence, God raised up a leader who called evil by its real name and worked to defeat it. And because of that, hundreds of millions of people are free to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ. God willing that will happen again, and the door will open for a billion more souls. We ought to give thanks to God for bringing this to pass."

Batesline eloquently remarks on how God has amazingly worked. Earlier today, Hubby and I were sitting in amazement that we live in a Former Soviet country--something that was unheard of when we were kids.

Dear Alexandra,

My daughter Talia, and two other girls from church are doing a project on missionaries, and one of the things they need to do is to write to and send a box to a missionary... the mom who is organizing this project for them realized that while she's coordinated any number of projects in support of different groups that our church supports, she doesn't actually know of any "real live missionaries" for the girls to write to! I told her I thought I might be able to find one, thinking of asking on the MOMYS digest, and then a day or two later you left a note on my blog (and I have looked at your blog and your husbands semi-regularly over the last 6 months or so, but you will have to remind me *which* of the email lists I was on 4 years ago you were on too!)

Anyway, I wanted to ask if you have any more recent email updates about what your family is doing in Kyiv that I can share with the girls club? Also, any suggestions for things you and your sons might appreciate in a care package? Thank you!

Yes, Alexandra, we want a detailed "wish list" - things that you miss or would be helpful during the next year.

Sora, an e-mail is on its way. . .

Thanks -- but I haven't seen the email show up yet (lost is cyberspace?) Could you re-send it please?
