Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

In Kiev

After our SDA appointment we waited in this very nice apartment. At this point we were either going on the night train to our children's city or we would leave in the morning. It was about 3pm now so we rested in our apartment until we heard from our facilitator. As soon as the fax arrived to the SDA giving us an "entry pass", Yulia called us and told us they were going to get our night train passes to go to Dnepropetrovsk. At 10pm we were picked by our driver and brought to the train station. It was 11pm when we departed and we arrived at 7am. I wish I had pictures of the inside cabin. It had 2 bunk beds on each side and a small table with a flower, bottled water, and some wafers. It had a large window with a shade. The cabin was approx 8' by 8' in size. The 4 of us were tired so I think we all slept at least 5 hours. The ride was smooth, but when it would come to a stop we would wake up. People were going to work in the morning we could see other people with their lunch boxes also waiting to get on the train. We felt safe on the train. In the morning they served black coffee/tea for 25 cents. When we got off the train our new driver and facilitator were waiting for us. They took us to our new apartment.
