Hi friends! We made it safely to Ukraine on Friday - we had our temperatures taken from the airplane in Kyiv before they let us deplane. Fortunately, everyone passed and deplaned.

In Kenya, ITEM Works to Teach Poor, Uneducated Recently, Daniel Muindi, Director of All Nations College, reported on his school and ITEM's impact in Thika, Kenya and beyond.

Wednesday, we had a meal with our Indian friends here in Kosice and once again shared with them the wonder-filled facts of the gospel. It was with tears that they reluctantly departed. Our desire in sharing this with you now is to show you that [...]
