Saturday in Zhitomir - at least we think it is Saturday
We did make it to our hotel late Friday night, all luggage and people accounted for. There are already hotel stories to tell, those will have to wait. We are minus one volunteer...the pigeon who though that he/she? would join Deb and I in our room. *grin*
The day was spent with members of Central Baptist Church in Zhitomir. This is the sponsoring church for this trip and they have been wonderful hosts. The team played a little bit of every sport with the youth from the church, including an introduction to flag football. Soccer was interesting with a small herd of visiting diary cows (I think we invaded their pasture, who knows).
We will have more later. The Internet access for the group is close to the hotel and is inexpensive. Several of the team members are typing frantically right now...moms and dads, check your email!
Thanks again for all your comments,

Just like Dan to have his head in Jenny's lap. Sound as if everyone is having a good time in spite of the minor set backs. I know all of you are working hard. Just know that we are proud of you and excited about the work you are doing.
Please keep up the postings. May God Bless all of you.

We're thinking of you all and so grateful for the website and email. Thanks, Paul, for your work on this! The bus looks interesting--glad the tire got fixed.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.

This is a great webpage to be able to keep up with the teams activities. We got our first email from our son, Josh, today. The trip has already had a positive impact on him. Thanks for allowing him the opportunity to minister this way. We're praying for y'all and look forward to new info each day! God bless

We look forward to seeing the postings each day and to the e-mail we received from our daughter, Jennifer. You all have been very busy and what an impact you must be having on everyone you meet - as I'm sure they're having on you. Keep up the good work and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Hope you're taking lots of pictures!
