I am very excited to be sending out this update. Our American team will be traveling to Ukraine at the end of May for a two week trip that will be jam packed with goodness. We will be opening our cafe (YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As long as we don’t hit any roadblocks) and doing village outreach for the kids. We are over the moon excited to be finally opening our cafe, which has been a dream for years. We know this will not only provide jobs in the village, which is so necessary, but also community. As much as I am excited for all that we will be doing, I am even more excited to see Sasha, it will be 3 months that we haven’t seen each other. I am so thankful for all of you who have faithfully supported, whether that be financially, emotionally, or in prayer. That being said, we need your help. We are hoping to do a carnival for our village outreach. If you would like to be involved by helping us, here are some of our needs: (you can donate the items or give money towards them)
-Small toys for prizes
-Coffee and tea for the cafe
-School supplies (pens, pencils, folders, notebooks, backpacks, etc.)
If you would like to donate physical items, we will need them by May 23rd to pack them. If you would like to donate monetarily, you can use the link below. Thank you so much!
Here are some of the people I CANNOT wait to see!
