I've been back in Halifax for 2 weeks now and I'm still trying to readjust and get caught up with things. My travel from Ukraine went smoothly overall with no lost luggage.
Before I went to Ukraine last spring I sent some money to my friends at Loads of Love for Sergey in Kyrgyzstan to take the kids at Orlovka Orphanage to the beach. Just like going to McDonald's is huge to kids in Ukraine who don't get there very often, going to Lake Issyk'ul in Kyrgyzstan is huge to the kids who don't get there without the kindness of others. It turned out that there was enough money for 2 trips which took place recently, one for the kids at Orlovka and a second trip for disadvantaged families that Sergey serves. Thank you so much to those of you who donated to my work and to my friends at Loads of Love that made this happen. It created some lifetime memories for everyone.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for seeing my heart. Till next time...я люблю вас!!
