Birthday Blessing

Holly Friesen on June 4, 2011

A week ago I celebrated my birthday for the second time here in Ukraine. This birthday in Ukraine was extra special & when I realized what it was that made it feel so special I just had to share. Last year I celebrated with my team-mates and with a few Ukrainians that I was just getting to know and could barely communicate with.

My Russian still needs alot of work, but it is a joy to be able to communicate more and to develop relationships with my ministry partners here!
