The Coalition for Children at Risk planning committee met at our flat yesterday afternoon. We are blessed with committed workers, and love the fact that the chairman of this committee is a Ukrainian. Galina has already proven to be well-organized and ready to lead this band of ministries, organizations, churches and individuals.
Our first meeting is scheduled for September 13 and our main speaker will be Ron Sauke, a visiting missionary whose specialty is training parents and teachers to work with children with special needs. He and his family lived in Hong Kong and the Philippines for 20 years, and he now lives in Seattle, Washington. He is in Ukraine as part of a team partnering with Ukraine Medical Outreach, Inc. and will be speaking at two conferences next week with an emphasis on autism — one in Lutsk and one in Kyiv. We have the privilege of hosting him for his 2-week stay.
Please pray for those conferences…that medical professionals, teachers and parents will have ears to hear. To God be the glory!
