TRIP TO KIEVE

I just wanted to post a quick note to let you all know that we have gone to visit the Lee's in Kieve. They are the Humanitarian Country Director's in Ukraine. We made a visit to the Kieve temple site yesterday. It was really wonderful to stand on the temple grounds and know that someday in the not too distant future the Saints in Ukraine will be able to enjoy the blessings of their very own temple. They are building a patrons home on the property for the members who have to travel long distances to have affordable housing while they are in Kieve. I will include pictures when I arrive back in Donetsk. We have had a nice time visiting and sharing Humanitarian mission stories with the Lee's. They have been working on local projects to get some relief to the recent flood victims in the Kieve area. It is so great to be able to see how quickly the Church responds to help during a natural disaster.

We will be taking a train home Sunday evening. We leave Kieve Sunday night around 7pm and arrive Monday morning around 7 am. We will have our first District meeting with our new Elders. Elder Williams just arrived from the US and Elder Crossley just transferred into our District. We are looking forward to spending time getting to know them. More later........
