-the food is GOOD!
-the hotel we are staying is nice. They provide breakfast which is a plus when you are foraging for food is a city of a few million.
- it is not as cold as I anticipated .....YET- we have been told they are having a heat wave...so it may get a lot colder.
-things are much less expensive than we anticipated.... the dollar is really gaining here right now.
-the people in the hotel speak ENGLISH... actually many of the people we have met speak English.
-we really enjoy walking everywhere. It is a really beautiful city and people are constantly walking around cleaning it.
-we have made some great friends in Jay and Martha.... it has been a joy to experience Kyiv with them
-God's provision....we should not be surprised by His benevolence... but it still takes our breath away when he provides. May he receive all the glory.
-our facilitators have been so helpful... we knew they would help us...but they have been great.
These are just a few of the ways we have been surprised by during our short stay in Kyiv. We can't wait to see how God will surprise us next. This journey has reminded me of a song by Keith and Krystin Townend..... "May this journey be a blesssing, may I rise on wings of faith, and at the end of my hearts testing, in your likeness let me stay." I have often hummed this song during our stay. Please continue to pray for us.- Sheila
