My dear Auntie Emma and Uncle Kevin, with, of course, their three sweet kiddos, arrived in the cities yesterday...the beginning of their three month visit from Ukraine. My man and I were able to ride with my family to go meet them at the airport. It was very exciting--we haven't seen them since January 2006! It was so wonderful to see them. The evening went very quickly. I am very much looking forward to spending some time with them before they go back to their home in Kiev, Ukraine. The fellowship is so sweet and the encouragement so strengthening. The reunion was a reminder of the joy that we will have praising God forever together in heaven!
