I am writing you now from western Ukraine. I have had the blessing of accompanying Jeff on this training because it is in Ukraine and we drove, arriving a couple days early. I"ll be updating this week. The topic for this week is "Prayerful Planning in the Christian Life."

This is a lovely spot we traveled to before our first day of training. The tiny folks in the picture is part of the class.

If it weren't so cold we'd hear the sound of this river from our hotel that is across the street. Fortunately for us, they are heating. Cold here in the mountains, but beautiful. These following pictures were taken on a morning walk before all particpants had yet arrived for the training.

A pretty spot. This was at one of those touristy places that are too expensive for our group, but that didn't keep us from walking and enjoying their grounds.

Vintage Ukrainian gem we spotted on the way.

Check out another vintage item.


  1. In the last (bottom) photo, is the vintage item the bridge or the individual looking over the rail? -- Dan Williams

  2. Beautiful scenery, Coleen. The vintage bike and rustic bridge are interesting.

  3. The photo of the waterfall is deceptive. I thought it was a small drop till I enlarged enough to see the size of the people in the picture. Wow, what a view!

  4. Hi lovely lady.
    I love all your photos you have post Beautiful sweet lady. I also love the waterfall, and the rustic bridge, I'm your newest follower on your blog now. I hope you can come see my Tablescapes.

  5. I've been following your blog for over a year now...thank you for sharing such amazing pictures of the Ukraine. Sarah (e2java Swap-Bot)

  6. Sarah, Thank you Sarah for letting me know. That is such an encouragement. I should do better at keeping it up, but it is always a draw between doing missions and writing about missions so mostly "doing" wins out.

    Sarah, you might also enjoy my artsy blog. My ministry is using crafts as a means to witness. On that blog I also post about what I do in my ministry and about things I make.
