Message from u09 team at 6:04 AM July 23 from Kremenchuk

6a here; up since 4a. Good sleep but not enuff.

AM devotions: feel strongly that His Word 4 us today: Colossians 1.3-14 as we prepare to reunite w/NHC, and Colossians 3.12-17 for our team’s encour’mt and remembrance. When team has AM mtg, will open with these words and a badly-played song.  Ha!

If u have an encour’mt for us, pls send so I can share w/team. Bob is running PM mtgs, I am running AM ones.

10a we’re off to Camp. Pls remember us in your prayers! Cont’d prayers for safety and health.

Btw, size of dumplings in food ct shrunk. Ahh, recession. Still, 6 of us ate for $12!

We arr’d in K’chuk safely after a bizarrely bumpy ride. Hotel is great and yes, we locked our doors after evening prayer and brief worship.  Dinner @ the amazing food ct across the way …

Tomorrow brings our 1st day @ Camp. Pls keep in prayer for us.

Jeehyun was amazing on the plane. Smiley and relaxed the whole time. I was more afraid than she was. She said, “I know, isn,t it funny?” And I said “not at all – what a gift.”

Wifi in hotel is icky, thus this wretched crackberrying. My thumbs are raw.  Just know that we are sooo happy to be here. Can’t wait to see NHC tomm.

Pls continue to pray for fullest measure of God’s grace and protection and power over us. Safety. Happy reunion. Good communication. And even now, more team bonding and increased unity. And always, boldness for Christ and His Good News.

His love,
Cathy. On behalf of U09


Our U09 team  landed at Kiev at 1:15 PM (Kiev local time, which is 7 hours ahead of NY) today, July 22. The team is now traveling to Kremenchug and should arrive early evening local time.  Below is a brief email update from the team while they were changing flights at Frankfurt, Germany:

Arrived at Frankfurt safely; waiting for flight to kiev. Jeehyun Kim is doing great. No fear or nerves; please keep praying for protection & safety. Had McD’s for breakfast. God is good…(not because of the McD’s but that too)
