Josh's Trip to Kiev

This summer I had the privilege to go to Kiev, Ukraine for a week to share in a short term mission trip with one of our supporting churches.  Here are a few photos from the trip and praise and prayer requests as well.
  • Praise God for the opportunity to go to Kiev, Ukraine and minister alongside a group of people from Oakridge Community Church. 
  • Praise God for the work that was able to be done in repairing part of the hospital that treats children affected by the Chernobyl accident. 
  • Praise God that no one was seriously hurt during the week of construction.
  • Praise God for the connection that the young people on the team were able to make to with a number of kids at the hospital for treatment.
  • Praise God for the good conversations I was able to have with the people I traveled to and from Ukraine with on a very long train ride.
  • Praise God for keeping Kara, Noemi, and Isobel safe while I was away.
  • Praise God for the time to reconnect and share with friends and supporters from OCC.  They encouraged me and allowed me to share with them in this time of ministry.

 Prayer Requests...
  • Pray that God will grant the hospital favor in the eyes of the government inspectors to remain open to treat these sick children.
  • Pray that God will continue to use Daryl to share the gospel with the children that come to this hospital for care.
  • Pray that this trip will mobilize OCC for further missions involvement.
  • Pray for God’s name to be praised and more would be added to His kingdom in the city of Kiev and Ukraine as a whole.
  • Pray that God would raise up Romanian believers to go and minister the Gospel in Ukraine.
