Ukraine Trip Update

Just a quick note to let everyone know things are going well here in Kiev.I'm about to head off to teach day 5 of the YM 102 Youth Culture class. I'mgiving the students their mid-term exam tomorrow so today is mainlyfocussing on getting them ready for that. It's been an interesting bunch ofstudents as they are literally from all over the country. Some are fromwestern Ukraine which is largely considered to be more progressive (verysimilar to US and Western European thinking), and others are from EasternUkraine which is still very much locked in the old soviet way of thinking.It made our discussion of postmodernism yesterday very interesting as theWesterners totally understood it and the Easterners disn't have a clue whatwe we were talking about, as most of them live in a world that stillprocesses things through a modern context...Anyway, here's the link to theweb youth ministry web site http://www.youthministry.org.ua so you can geta little better idea what they are all about and how my ministry fits in totheir ministry. Feel free to pass this around to people so they can bepraying for me as well as the ministry here in Ukraine. After the exam on saturday (yes they have school on saturday!) I'm doingsome site seeing so I hope to get some good pictures to send later...Oh bythe way could you have people praying for me on sunday as I've been asked topreach at a local church here in Kiev...I think I'm preaching at 10am (7hours ahead of US time)...Thanks, I hope all is going well there. Godbless. Brent
