We’re almost halfway through the year, and looking back at these past 6 months, all I can say is “thank goodness!”. 2020 has been rough, really rough. The entire world has been affected by this pandemic that never seems to end.

     Thankfully, our international partners (considering everything that’s going on) are doing quite well! We are grateful that they are all still standing and moving forward with each of their missions.

     Jeremiah’s Hope, located in Ukraine, has received a great donation to add to its playground! The children are enjoying a new slide and tic-tac-toe game as summer approaches. Yesterday, a young boy celebrated his 11th birthday with cake, gifts and games. The boy has three siblings who are also part of Jeremiah’s Hope – they are all adjusting well, considering they just found out they won’t ever be reunited with their parents. Prayers for peace would be appreciated for these young children.

     The Harbor in St. Petersburg, Russia has been taking quarantine as an opportunity to fix/clean some things in the apartments. One example is helping one of the male residents create a list of goals to complete for the month of May. The list included things such as, changing some lightbulbs and cleaning windows throughout the boy’s apartment. This has helped the boy learn self-discipline and how to set goals for himself.

     Thank you, everyone, for your continued support, thoughts and prayers during this difficult year. We are grateful to be teamed up with you, Jeremiah’s Hope and The Harbor at St. Petersburg!
