After a flight delay, we arrived in Kherson on schedule with the help and support of Compassion Christian’s support team. We were greeted by our host with open arms and made to feel at home. The Men’s Conference started on Friday with John and Lannie giving their sessions. Friday evening we celebrated fellowship with the men attending over a dinner of Ukrainian fish stew. The Conference continued on Saturday with Dean and Bill giving their sessions and Bill sharing some of his testimony. Other men attending the conference shared their testimonies as well. The testimonies were very heart stirring and many lives will be impacted. Again Saturday we were able to fellowship with men at the conference over dinner. In all we were made to feel welcome and have enjoyed good conversations and were able to share our life experiences in spite of the language difference. Also Saturday we were treated to a concert by a group that sang in acapella. Their harmony was so great you were moved and understood their music and felt their passion. Truly, we have felt God’s presence during our visit.
Lannie, Dean, John & Bill
