Deacon's Borsch

Paul Baxter has several interesting posts on his mission trip to Lviv, along with a promise to share his recipe for borsch.

Lesson from Ukraine
Lesson 2 from Ukraine
Photos from Ukraine

Actually, to see the pics and read the posts from Paul's trip, it's best to just go to his blog and read through it.

But my promise was not an unconditional one :)

I'll say again that I really regret the fact that I was not able to see you family while in Ukraine. That being said, God had just incredible things waiting for our team in Lviv and in the Carpathians. If you ever get the chance to go to Lviv for something (a vacation perhaps), please do so. It is an incredibly beautiful city, and small enough to explore well on foot. Also let me know if you plan to do so and I'll hook you up with some good people to be tour guides for you.

Thanks! We do want to go out to Lviv sometime. I've seen photos. And I believe there is planning at the presbytery level, to work with a new church plant in Lviv. (Hmmm. . . Have y'all considered full-time missions?)

I was really thinking about that last night. I was reading a John Perkins book about relocation as a ministry strategy. The subject was really relocating to poor american neighborhoods, but I kept thinking that the same things apply to foreign missions.

Things that seem in the way at the moment: my Russian is about 10 words (and that includes the numbers I know), and about half that in Ukrainian. I would think knowing Ukrainian would probably be the key in Lviv. Expecting the bambino is another, though of course missionaries have kids, as you might be aware.
