Our group of 27 have arrived in Philadelphia and are waiting for our international flight to Kiev, via Frankfurt. We checked on 27 relief duffle bags full of supplies and gifts that our team has worked tirelessly to gather for the approximately 1,000 orphans we will visit.
We are from 5 different cities and states and our groups don’t really know each other yet. But I am positive that after 10 days of working in orphanages, eating 3 meals a day together, playing games on the ship, having nightly devotionals, and spending each day with the same purpose and goal, we will leave the best of friends.
We are anxious to post each day and keep our HopeHouse friends and our Mission Team Prayer Partners up to date on all that we are experiencing as we serve the orphans in Ukraine. Please feel free to comment on our blogs or on facebook as we read them aloud each night and your comments and prayers become a great source of encouragement to each of us.
We’re ready to board . . .
