The Week of May 12 - No One Day the Same!

This past week has been one of different experiences, thoughts and emotions every day. The week begin with a Monday morning trip to an orphanage about 30 minutes from where we live in Tokmok. We arrived at Olovka mid-morning and were greeted by beautiful children. We were invited on this incredible day by John and Julie Wright and their daughters, Emma and Rebakah. To capture the depth of their ministry, visit How God is using this family is awesome to watch. They spend much of their time each week simply loving on kids growing up in orphanages. When you think of it, there is nothing simple about touch or a word a child won’t forget because someone took the time to develop a relationship with him and tell him about the love of God.
