I feel like our prayers for the Ukrainian election were answered. They were largely peaceful and free from incident.
This article from The Atlantic gives a good analysis of the broader situation and what might come next… CLICK HERE
Tomorrow many Ukrainians will go to the polls to vote in presidential elections. Many other Ukrainians will not be able to vote because of the pro-Russian thugs. The Russian thug-in-chief has said he will respect the Ukrainian vote. He has lied before. All any of us can do is pray. So please take a moment and pray for peace in Ukraine.
I have a good friend back home who inspires me with his discipline. I see it in all aspects of his life. The most important being that he has this great attitude about beginning his day with long and intense time with God. To know we press on together helps me press on.
Who inspires you in your path with Jesus? What do they inspire you to?
My colleague Josh and I took a drive through a “township” this morning looking at unused property.
His organization is called Growing Hope. The next evolution in this ministry to some of the people in this township is a centrally located station. This center will have multiple uses:
– a place to get garden supplies at prices people can afford;
– a place to get training of various kinds;
– a place where the gospel is shown and spoken.
We’re pretty excited about brainstorming the next couple of days I’m here to take the next steps! A couple from England has already raised some needed funds to get this project off the ground! You can help too! Go to www.ceokids.org to learn more about Growing Hope and get involved.
