Sunday Morning Service & No mail

These are missionaries Paul and Christine and their children. You can also see some of the inside of the building where they meet for worship.
This is where the English-speaking international church meets. It doesn't look so fancy on the outside but it is very spacious and pleasant on the inside--we were told it was a converted garage. We later met a young lady who had actually been part of the team who helped with the renovation.

This is the theological seminary next door. I believe there are also church services held here in languages other than English.

We did make it to church this morning without too much problem. It is an international church and we were told there are people from about 40 countries who attend. It was great to sing the familiar Christmas carols. The Assembly of God missionaries who are the pastors are from Wisconsin. We are looking forward to a candlelight service on Christmas Eve.

I apologize to anyone who has tried to email us--for some reason we have had no mail delivered to our inbox since Tuesday. To our kids: we really miss you and miss hearing from you but please know we love you and are praying for you. You can just leave comments here on the blog--we do get those. If I remember right, Debbie Joy was taking you guys to the Christmas program in Hazelton--I sure hope you enjoy it.

Joy, I love it that your kids leave comments on here asking permission to watch movies. You have a great family. Just want you to know I'm thinking about you and praying for you. It must be so different to be in Ukraine in the winter than when we were there in summer.

love ya.Karen :)
