Joining Many…

…in praying for the troubling situation in the Ukraine. Personally the Mennonite Girls Can Cook have an ongoing relationship with The Good Shepherd Shelter that is located in the Ukraine.

All of our author royalties from our first book have been designated for the shelter and we’ve been able to build a greenhouse where they are already growing food year round for the shelter.

We also are waiting news of a pending adoption of an orphan from the Ukraine. We just don’t know how the tensions and uprisings and invasions will effect the shelter or the adoption process but we do know the God who loves orphans. We know that He knows and He is sovereign. Praying for a peaceful resolution and that the country will be able to move forward without more bloodshed.

  1. Along with the serious situation in the Ukraine, please remember the dire conditions in Venezuela, too. Thanks !

  2. Do you know that until you put two and two together for me, I had not? Unbelievable. Yes, we watch with growing concern knowing full well that these are challenging times for Ukraine. Thank you for reminding me of the connection and the need. Venezuela? Oh dear. Now to do some googling.

  3. So many to pray for. As you said, God is sovereign and none of this has caught Him by surprised. It is a comfort to know that.
