I move into my apartment on Monday! I’m so excited. I’ve been living in a hostel across the street from the Pratts for a few weeks, and… basically, it’ll be really good to have my own space. I’m makin’ a list of stuff to buy for it (like sheets for my bed, blankets, pots/pans, pillows, cleaning supplies, laundry stuff, etc.) This is my first time doing this kinda thing, so I’m pretty stoked.
Today, Alex and Josh Pratt, Ryan and Eric Bellamy (a couple of missionary boys from Dnipropetrovs’k), and I went and played baseball with some other missionaries and Ukrainians from L’viv. The missionaries are hoping to use baseball as a ministry to reach Ukrainians and other people across Europe. If they can start a little league here in L’viv and get it going well, they could have the kids play in the European championship (the winner of which goes to the world championship in the U.S.A.).
Please be praying for that ministry. I’m not sure how involve I’ll be. My love for the Ol’ American Pastime is a measly 2 1/2 months old. It was about that much time ago that the Slacks (my Indiana family) taught me how to swing a bat and throw a ball, so I don’t have that much experience.
