"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Hi from Ukraine!

Hello All! Coming to you live from a Ukraine internet cafe. We got Bella's referral today!!!!! We get to meet her tomorrow after 10:00 a.m. We are so excited!

Our translator is Natasha and she is awesome! She has gone above and beyond the call of duty! What a blessing to have someone so caring, smart, and who even laughs at Kevin's jokes. Ha Ha

If you would like to skype call or call us, you may do so at 38 067 169 7560. I think there is a small charge for the skype to cell phone charge, but not very much. Also, please note that we are 8 hours ahead CST.

We do not have internet access yet, so I will update with pictures soon. We are having a great time so far, but have not run into any other Reece's Rainbow families yet.

Thanks for your continued prayers! Love, Paula & Kevin who will be meeting Bella tomrrow!
