Thursday the 24th
We spent the day out in Kiary at the institute for 500 men with mental challenges. Some of the young men, old men and everyone in between gathered around the four of us who came to visit that day. The four guys from this institution we hope to bring 
into Stephen’s home looked so healthy, I was very encouraged by this visit with them.
Valentine, the pastor of a church in Kherson joined us, a real blessing as he shared from the Bible with them. 
Many present have studied the Bible with others who’ve led discussions.

A routine, now with expectations, are sharing of good cookies and 
juice along with fresh bananas around good conversation.
