Closing Day

I was able to speak to Jamie Morgan, the team leader tonight as they were on the train heading back to Kiev. She said today was a pretty normal day as the others, but bitter sweet. They played some new games, had Bible lessons and a final assembly where everybody cried. The children thanked them for coming and expressed how they enjoyed learning about America and getting to know all of the team. This was the time when they all gave each other gifts. Jamie said the Ukrainians accompanied them to the train and carried all the girl's bags. Ukrainians are an extremely hospitable people and will stay with you to the very last moment. Your day in America will be our night so pray for the team to be able to sleep on the train. Tomorrow will be a day of touring the beautiful golden-domed capital of Kiev.
