Ukraine Week 5

This week Matthew Day wrote the team update....

Monday was our day off (hallelujah!). Well, sort of. On Monday's we clean the apartment, shop for the week, go to the gym, do laundry, and anything else that we need to do that didn't get done during the week. (Maybe now we have a taste of what it's like to be a parent, always working.) Well, this Monday was no exception and we were doing the Monday thing as early as, well, after we got out of bed and had breakfast. (I guess that's why Monday is called the day off, we get to sleep in.)

Wednesday was another one of those days out tracting. Every one of us was hoping for humongous apartment buildings with lots of wide slot PO boxes (CMO heaven). That night we went over to the Steeles' apartment for ice cream and a movie. There we also met Shira Pinson and her assistant, Gedys. They are here from Great Britain to make a documentary film about missionary work in Ukraine. They are planning to be here through next Sunday.

On Saturday we got on our train to Stariy Sambir, and there met Jessie and his yellow van. We rode with Jessie up to the villages of Voloshynove and Rozsokhy, where we passed out Good and Evils as well as G&E invites. As we drove to our camp site it started to rain. Thank God it stopped long enough for us to set up our tents. It sprinkled off and on while we cooked dinner. Then as we were about to go to bed it started pouring. Good old Carpathian weather!

We have enjoyed the updates from the Ukrainian half of your family. :) But we haven't heard one single thing about how the people have responded to the amazing and wonderful banjo music that Andrew is so good at creating. So...? ;-)
