In the last two weeks, I have been helping the Steeles move into their new apartment, and helping the Beals pack up and put all their stuff in storage. I think by the time I am done helping people move in and out, that it will be my turn to start packing. I officially have 10 more weeks here. I am going to be sad to leave, but I do know that I am excited to get home to my family and friends.

Last Tuesday I taught our organizations English club for the first time. I think it went well, but was a little awkward at first, because they are not used to me being the teacher. Jessie Beal sat through the last lesson, and because they are used to him being the teacher, were asking him for everything they needed. It was funny, but they’ll get used to it. Tomorrow I teach for the second time. Please pray that the Lord will give me wisdom in where to take this group of students, in learning English, and his word.

Everybody keeps asking me how my language learning is coming along. That is a difficult question to answer, but I will try my best. My teacher says that my pronunciation is good, but I am “…a little lazy learning new words.” All this to say, that if I am walking down the street, and someone asks me the time, for directions, or how the weather is, I can answer them. I am able to converse about simple things we might call small talk. When it comes to hard topics like politics, I am blank. The Ukrainian Language is a very interesting one, and is case based. That means that depending on who is saying it, what they are saying it about, or when they are saying it changes the word. Some words change so much, that they are nothing like the original word. It is a very fun language to learn.

Please keep our team in your prayers. Please pray for wisdom in the English club, and all that. Thank you.
