Kiev Update

Sunday went well, thanks to everyone for praying for me...there were about 100 people at the church service...and I preached the 2nd sermon of the day (yes, I said second sermon...the service was about 2 and a half hours long, and I spoke for about 2 hours...just kidding)...They told me the 2nd sermon is reserved for the more prominent, educated, successful and more experienced preacher, so I thought wow this is cool, until I saw that the 1st preacher was about 16 years old and had recently become a christian, God keeps me humble...the church is 7 years old, and was started by the son of one of my former professors in college. So it was cool to catch up with him and learn about what God has been doing in the church and in his life. His wife (she translated for me) is the daughter of Gorgie Vins http://www.mbconf.ca/mbstudies/holdings/perspapers/vins_g.en.html check out the bio on him...I've grown up hearing about him and studying about him, so it was incredible to talk with his daughter and have her as my translater...it was awesome!

On saturday I visite the Lavra http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pochayiv_Lavra and got a very interesting history lesson in religion in the process...I was blown away again with the difference between religion and relationship...I am so glad for relationship!

Well, I'm about to go teach my class. I have 2 more days of teaching left and have really enjoyed getting to know the students and learn about their lives and goals for youth ministry in the future. I appreciate all of your prayers. God bless.
