I love personalized ornaments. And this one is no exception. 1999. A big year in the life of the Peipon family. Visited Ukraine for the first time as we began to recognize God’s call to minister here. Anna and Jeanne spent nearly a month teaching English in Ukraine and visiting friends living here. Jamie continued to pray that this move was just a phase that his parents were going through, and we would soon give up the idea. By 2001 we were living here full-time.
And then Anna headed to Kathmandu. And Jamie married Dasha (you can be certain that he’s thrilled that we came to Ukraine!). And Jeanne married Kolya.
And the little bears on this tree have scattered.
