I arrived home from Ukraine on Sunday morning. I had a fantastic trip......there were lots of wonderful things accomplished and such a sweet, amazing time with the people. I'm blessed. :) I have to admit that it was the most challenging mission trip I've ever been on. We met resistance in the circumstances constantly. But the return was too great to let the difficulties mar what God did. If you want to read more, check out my CrazieCommitment blog
I never got to post the final pics of all the cookies I took to the Ukraine. It ended up being over 100 cookies along with 10 boxed sets. Most made it with no problem.....although I had a small number of broken or slightly crushed ones. Overall, they traveled very well. :)
Here are the cookies I gave to each team member.....there were 35 of us. Shew......that was quite a bunch of cookies to make beyond all the ones I wanted to make for the Ukrainians!!
I added a Bible verse to each one hoping to encourage each team member.
Here's a small sampling of the 70 plus cookies I gave out to the Ukrainians that we visited each day in their homes. It was such a joy to share with them and see the delight on their faces. A few of the ladies kissed the cookie when I gave it to them. Precious!
And here is a sampling of the boxed sets I made for some of the ladies we were able to minister to. From what I saw....most won't even consider opening the box and eating them.
I have pics to share with you from Ukraine.....but I'm still recovering and haven't had a chance to get all the photos together. Give me a few more days, and I'll be back to "normal".
It is VERY good to be home. :)
