What it's All About
Thankfully, the feelings of not wanting to be in Ukraine were quickly replaced by reasons TO BE in Ukraine. Sure, there are many things that I don't like about life here and those things are not likely to change, but I once again have a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. This week an acquaintance confided in me and asked me to pray for her. I was able to encourage a wife of an alcoholic to continue her new-found courage to stop enabling him. Through my sister's medical advice, I was able to help a woman recover from a bad ear infection that was affecting her hearing. I am grateful for the opportunities I have to listen to others and pray for them. If I can help others get a glimpse of how much God loves them and cares for them, then I know that this is where I am meant to be.
