After 24+ of travel to reach our destination, we arrived in Ivano-Frankest. Our first day was filled with meeting many wonderful people and adjusting to living eight hours ahead in time.
With a little taste of home (sort of). Our breakfast was in a downstairs restaurant called Churchill. Then, it was off to church.
The church was held in a non-descript building downtown. We loved worshipping with fellow Christians in Ivano-Frankevsk. There were also students from Ghana, Africa. The weather may have been colder, but the people made us feel warm inside.
After a wonderful meal, we enjoyed an afternoon celebrating the 602th anniversary of Starry-Lasset. There were many performances of children and adults and John was honored for his great works of the community. We can’t wait to visit the schools tomorrow and introduce the kids to America.
