I was just starting to write an update this afternoon and had entitled it “Sitting at home instead of a plane”. It was to tell you that our flights were canceled and instead of flying this afternoon we were all at home going about our normal business.
It was also going to say that we were waiting patiently on the Lord, learning to trust in Him. Plans were being drafted to get a soloist or two, or an ensemble of 8 to Ukraine as quickly as we could so that some type of concert would be able to take place this week.
Well ….. (insert “How Great Is Our God” right here)
Don Blackley called me as I was writing. God has worked some things out and is showing us that in His time all things work together for His glory.
The pastors of Ukraine did not want a sample group. So all the concerts for this week and next have been canceled.
Viking River Cruise called the Gott’s, before the Gott’s had a chance to call them. They have made available an after season charter for us.
So, we are rescheduling our trip to Ukraine to late October. We will post the firm dates as we know them.
Thank you for your prayers on our behalf. God is good all the time. Keep praying for us as we redo plans. The Gotts are meeting with the pastors this week to set up things for October. Also pray for the thousands of people who have been stranded as a result of all this.
