We had about half a day in Prague before our flight to California
We’re basically pro’s at flying now, though I still can’t sleep on those seats that don’t recline more than 2 degrees!
The CGN International conference was very encouraging
I (David) got to lead worship at the morning prayer meetings a cappella while Wayne Taylor led prayer
A mall in Ukraine where our friends buy groceries was bombed… That was really hard to hear while we were at the CGN conference
Sharing with folks about our mission and ministry at the conference – I’m so proud of how articulate Katya is!
We had a great time at our friend’s church in Sacramento
Our friends from Sacramento
They organized two missions dinners for us – one with friends, and the other with the missions committee of their church
The missions committee was very welcoming and encouraging

The Ukrainian Festival in Cleveland
We briefly visited CC Cleveland and met Mike Bucher, “the fastest CC pastor in the world” (look him up on YouTube if you want to know what that means!)
We LOVED sitting under Jordan McGhaughey’s teaching in Indianapolis – he’s the new pastor at HCF, my sending church. Jordan and I went to Bible college together, and I’m very excited to see how God will continue to use him there. We love you, Jordan!

Early morning in Prague on the way back
Though our trip to America was short, it was a big blessing to see so many friends and family. I know that we weren’t able to see everyone – if we didn’t see you, let’s try to hang out next time if possible!
