Agape school

Now that we're in Kherson, I should be writing more about Agape. But, really, we haven't gotten involved yet. We've been enjoying a nice, slow time to settle in and rest. Now we're ready to jump in....

Alex Fedorchuk, the director of Agape, should be arriving in Kherson tomorrow! We had been waiting for him to get back, before even starting to figure out how we fit in to the ministry.

And, one of Agape's main ministries is teaching Christians how to minister in orphanages. Among other things, they do that through their yearly school, that meets in week-long sessions. People come from all over Ukraine and surrounding countries to study together. You might remember that we got to sit in on the final session of last year's school and graduation in June. This year Will is attending. He left last night for the first session in Kiev. We had wanted to go all together, but that didn't work out, so he's there for all of us.

This year Agape also has something new: a school for leaders of adaptation centers (homes for orphanage graduates). That starts October 28. Please be praying for the people learning how to serve orphans and for those who are teaching: at the new leaders' school, at Agape seminars in Russia next month, and at the school Will is attending. We won't be directly involved in the first two on that list, but we're praying for them!

Praying for you all as Will is Kiev - for him to learn all that he needs to learn and for you all as he is gone - and for all of you as you get integrated into this new ministry!! Love to all of you!
