I made it home from Ukraine safe and sound late Monday night.
We had a fabulous trip! You can read more about it on my Ukraine blog. I thought I'd share a few pics here too.
The cookies I had made for the mission team as well as the for many Ukrainians were very well received. Here's a pic of some of our Ukrainian friends looking at the little cookie photo album I brought. :)
This pic was taken right after I shared cookies with all these dear sweet ladies (the regional pastors wives that we ministered to at the retreat).
And here is a group shot we had taken on our last day of the retreat......I will treasure this photo!
The pastors wives went crazie over the cookie photos and many expressed a desire to learn how to decorate cookies.....possibly using it as a business. They tell me that they have NOTHING like this in Ukraine and they believe it would be something that people would buy. What a blessing it would be to have the privilege to share my abilities and skills to help them!
We are already beginning to talk about a possible women's conference next year alongside the regional pastor's event. I may have the opportunity to offer a "cookie decorating class" during that event. That thought brings a smile to my face. :)
Now that I've been home for about 36 hours, I've had time to accomplish much.......I'm completely unpacked, have clean clothes, and can finally see the top of my desk. ;)
Today I'm going to start on a big cookie order, and hopefully I'll also get some Easter cookies decorated on Friday. I'm back in the kitchen......hurray! =)
