Bill and I were out for several hours this afternoon preparing for the winter storm that is just beginning here in Virginia. For us, this means getting cilantro and limes for the black bean soup, and Hershey bars and marshmallows for banana boats. Thinking about the laundry produced by seven kiddoes playing in the snow, the mounds of boots by the fire, the potential need to haul the gas grill onto the screened porch to cook dinner and the lack of potty-flushing ability, and the inability to drive ANYWHERE in our 12-passenger van is about the hardship we can anticipate.
In Odessa, they are experiencing unusual snowfall as well. However, for our friends, for the kiddoes we left behind, and for the numerous orphans in villages all around Odessa, the hardships are potentially much more dire.
Dear friends !!!
We have an urgent prayer request! As you have probably heard that there is a huge snow storm in Odessa and its region. This means that many villages are left without electricity and food. The trucks that deliver groceries to the village stores just cannot get through. This also means that the orphanages that are located outside of Odessa are left in desperate needs for food as well.
Please pray so that the weather would go better soon and the trucks with food would be able to get to far away places.
Have a wonderful and blessed day,
Slavik and Alyona
