Summer Visitors

We had some amazing visitors from far, far away a couple weeks ago... from Ukraine!!

2 Boys in Back are From V's School in Ukraine!

It was wonderful to reunite with our friends! We met D and E through Facebook because they also hosted their boys through NHFC. Their boys attended V's school!! V grew up with them!!

Little V  :)
It is so amazing, only God could orchestrate our friendship, so needless to say, their friendship is priceless!!

We were on our 10 day waiting period in Ukraine when D and E arrived in the same city we were staying in. Tress and I counted down the days for their arrival. As soon as they got there, we got a message they were in town and we met them at the nearest restaurant as soon as we could.
  Can you say, "Breath of Fresh Air"?

  Immediately a friendship was born with so much in common! We shared taxi rides, watched movies together, exchanged money between each other, went shopping together, ate together...

D and V
 and even shared 2 different hotel rooms for a COUPLE WEEKS together!

Tressa took these memorable pics for us  :)
A little blury, us at a Ukrainian Restraunt

  Even before we traveled overseas, they allowed us to call their son’s phone in Ukraine to be able to talk to V. I would have never dreamed that I would meet this sweet young man…

…or that he and his family would stay with us in our home a year later!
Y and V Having fun in the Pool.  V kept trying to knock Y off.  :)

  GOD IS GOOD!!! We had so much fun!
