The Other Election

For those interested in Ukrainian politics, I recommend Hubby's post about Europe's Most Important Election.

And, Einsondernull recommends the following blogs for "on-site news. Sometimes biased, maybe incomplete - but definitly commited and first hand."

Hello TulipGirl, I was wondering if per chance you happen to know E. and L. H.? And what is your connection with the Navigators? My folks are on staff with the Navs, presently with Church Discipleship Ministries, but have worked as missionaries to several countries as well.

Yep! We know and work with E. and L. H.. E. is our team leader and we were just over at their flat this Wednesday. How do you know them?

I think the Navs are a great organization. To be honest, though, we haven't done much with them here. I try to stay abreast of the "big picture" of what is going on here in Ukraine, but it's hard to know who and which ministries are doing what.

My favorite quote this election has been from the opposition candidate:

"Remember that cockroaches and cheaters are afraid of light," he said. "Please report any falsifications you see, any provocations. Please know that anyone who smashes windows or breaks into stores or drinks vodka on election day is a provocateur, and he serves those who want to steal your choice."

Went to the same PCA church as the E. and L. H. back here in Maryland when they were here. Please send my greetings. My husband worked with E. at C.T.S. many years ago, and I am sure E and L would be grieved to hear of his departure from the faith and our family. (You can read more on my blog if you like, it is a long sad story, but I am being blessed in the midst of it.) It is so cool to find people in common through the blogsphere. It has been such a blessing for me to make these contacts.

Not sure who the Navs are in the Ukraine, my folks have been to Russia several times, but not Ukraine. Blessings to you and your family and please extend my greetings to the H family!

Ukraine goes to the polls tomorrow. This will likely decide their near future -- will they finally move towards real reform, or default into an Axis of Backwaters alongside Russia and Belarus? Please be in prayer, that the people will make the right choice, and that their choice will be honored. Given the rampant corruption, it's too late for fair elections. But I'd settle for a happy ending. Oh, par for the course, the Orthodox Church is planning an election-day procession for the oligarch candidate -- a twice-jailed thug running the ugliest power grab since the Revolution. Apparently, Ukraine received both her religion AND her politics from the Byzantines.
