The temperature this morning was 41 degrees and all felt the chill. Despite the early morning cold Jeff called it a fabulous day. They rode a rickety little jet that the team wasn't so sure was going to get them there, but all was fine. They were met with a bus and taken for lunch to a church. There Jeff met the pastor that just so happens to be the blood brother of one of the ladies in our church back in Ukraine....small world.
In the evening there was a youth service where two of the team member gave their testimony. Jeff said it was a wonderful service. Praise the Lord.
Afterwards they went to a gym where a basketball game was played. It was a tight game with the Russians winning 84 to 82. Jeff was impressed with the level of sportsmanship in all the players. He said they aren't professionals, but they are mighty good. When you are playing for Christ, even losing is winning he said.
There were two times of devotionals this eveing ending around 11:30. Pray for the teams.
