It is Chernobyl Day here in Ukraine. 31 years ago on this date, April 26, 1986 life in Ukraine changed for many thousands of people. It is still remembered here. Some of our team have toured the Chernobyl Museum today and have a better grasp on how that disaster so many years ago really affected the very area we are in.
This is the reason we do not have a concert here. Back in 2012 when we were here and had a concert on this day it was met with some mixed reaction from the Ukrainians. This time around as we put the schedule together, we arranged to be off this night.
It has been a day of rest, discovery, & sightseeing of this delightful city.
The concert last night was very good. This is the largest hall that we will be in and is the most modern. Estimating the crowd is harder to do in this setting. We will say there were around 3,000 in attendance. We do know that 1,301 of them filled out a response card and registered their response to Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord.
We prepare for our final day in Ukraine tomorrow and our final concert. It’s hard to believe this mission is coming to an end. Tonight is the last full night of sleep we will get before we are all home back in Texas. (Thursday night will be late getting back and we leave very early in the AM to head to the airport.)
Thanks for your continued prayer for us. I will try and post the results of tomorrow’s concert as soon as I know them. In the days after we get back, I will also try to post some video that I have not been able to do this time around.
Hope everyone at home has a great Wednesday.
