What we're dreaming of . . .
Shade For Children is a brand new ministry even though we, along with a variety of volunteers, have been serving for years. As we launch the ministry we are already dreaming about the future; about realities we want to see someday; realities you can pray for with us and maybe help bring to fruition.
A bigger vehicle
Every week I drive more than an hour to reach one of the orphanages we visit. It's a small team because my car is a Ford Fiesta, but that's about the change. We purchased an 8 seat Honda Odyssey in June and it is being shipped to Ukraine, due in November!
A Drop-in Day Care Center
Dream big or go home, right? Our town needs a drop-in day care center for families in crises. Maybe even a Center especially for special-needs children...kids most at risk for being shipped off to an orphanage because their parents lack the time or skills to care for them full-time.
Our own camp facility
There aren't many dedicated Christian camp facilities in Ukraine. A ministry from Netherlands owns one near us and they are booked virtually every week for next year already! It's a dream but wouldn't it be awesome- somewhere in the Carpathian foothills not far from Uzhhorod.
