At the end of April went to a conference in the beautiful city of L’viv, Ukraine. MTW occasionally sponsors a conference for team leaders and their wives and we were blessed to be able to attend this year. The conference included times of worship and prayer, and lots of great fellowship with fellow missionaries from all over Europe.
We were able to connect with couples whom we haven’t seen for a long time. The English worship was very much appreciated. The times when we prayed for each other were a huge blessing. One part of the conference focused on the introduction of a new vision for MTW in Europe and a new leadership structure. We also heard a very interesting report from the MTW team in L’viv about how their work got started and some of the ways that God has led them in the past several years.
After the conference ended, we stayed in L’viv for a few extra days to visit with Vitaliy and Marissa Voytenko, Jenni De Jong, and Adam Garner – all of them friends we met during our days of training and support raising with MTW. The weather was perfect – warm, sunny days, and cool evenings. L’viv is a gorgeous place with a long, widely varied history. Some of the pictures we took are included in the post.
