For a while now I have been talking about going back to minister to the children and staff at the orphanages and had hoped to go back there this week. But I couldn't do it.  We have been asked to put  putting together another conference for families and professionals this winter. But it all costs money!!!  (Of which I have none!!!!)  We have also been gathering much needed adaptive equipment and need to ship it over and are hoping to ship a  container ahead of time so we can distribute the equipment to the neediest. There are five boys in Rominiv who are in need of protective helmets due to their self abusive behaviors. So I will begin fund raising as of today. If anyone would like to help my cause the children would so appreciate it!!
This weekend I will be starting with a YARD SALE at my house in Effort, Pa., so I need your prayers that the rain holds out and the volunteers come! I will be offering  Matryushka dolls and ornate eggs for sale along with other items from the Ukraine, just in time for the holiday season.
