Happy faces from a concentrated two day workshop for kids of foster families in Odessa, Ukraine. See more below. We not only work with parents who receive these kids but with the youth and children themselves. What we teach is centered around improving self-esteem, gaining trust in relationships, knowing how to manage disagreement and communicate with respect. I made these images during our visit in March.
My time here in New Vernon as the Interim Pastor is nearly finished. I will soon be able to devote all energy to our work in Ukraine. We return to Odessa July 20th and stay until August 29th. Two camps are planned for the youth and children, and our Peace Camp is planned for refugee families from the eastern region of Ukraine. Look for us in the fall as we will begin our trip around the states to visit churches and people supporting This Child Here.
