where are we? we are here in Birmingham & planning to stay unless God steers us somewhere else! Yura must reapply for his green card next summer & we plan to stay stateside until 2016 or so.
how are we? we are doing pretty well! we love being back here with friends, family & being at Brook Hills with our small group! [also i’m glad for American food!] of course we are missing Ukraine, family & friends there. Yura more than me.
where are we living? we have been really blessed to have a townhouse to live in rent free until January, though we hope to get our own place by Thanksgiving or Christmas.
what about Harvest and Hope? we are continuing to raise support for projects & kids in Ukraine from here. we will send the money with teams & to missionaries who will be able to carry out these projects on the ground in Ukraine.
are we working? yes & maybe. we both have part-time jobs. i am working at the Loft at the Summit as well as my dad’s new venture Liquid Life. Yura just got hired at the Publix on Highway 31 & has another prospective job. however we are still looking for other part-time jobs to fill in the gaps. ideally I would like to have a full-time job but haven’t been able to find anything!
things we are praying about:
- [a second car]: we have one vehicle but will need a second very soon to both get to work. trying to make a wise decision & purchase soon!
- [new place]: once we get settled in our new jobs we will start looking for a place of our own! we’ll probably be looking at apartments in the Homewood/Vestavia/Hoover areas, but are kind of open to anything!
thanks for keeping up with us. we are so thankful for the community we have here!
