Fall has arrived, and I hope it stays 🙂 I love the cooler weather!!
Kolya and I have been moving around, house/pet sitting for the 3 weeks! It’s kind of like being on a mini-vacation and a little extra cash in our pockets 🙂
This past week, we’ve both been missing Ukraine a LOT! Maybe because it was leading up to today, my mother-in-laws birthday! and also the first day of school for our niece, Lesya. It’s hard getting established again in a new city where it’s been over 8 years since I’ve lived here! But we are plugging along, with God pointing out in different ways the why we are here at this exact time 🙂
In 2 weeks start the ESL classes at our church. Kolya will be taking the class and I’ll be helping out in one of the other classes, depending on what class Kolya will be testing into! I joined the Mission Awareness Team (MAT) and had our first meeting last Tuesday evening. And the first Saturday of every month, we are helping to organize a service project morning, in the hopes of getting the Young Adults more involved in other aspects of the church and helping. This Saturday will include cleaning the nursery and disinfecting toys, and painting an upstairs Sunday School room (I’m pretty sure) and organizing or at least knowing what costumes the kids have in a closet for the Christmas plays.
We are looking forward to heading out to Baltimore next Saturday the 12th for the 33rd annual Ukrainian Festival! If nothing major happens between then and now, we will be having a fun day trip 🙂
Well, I’m off to apply for some more jobs… I’ll try to post more regularly!
