We just finished our second week of summer VBS. It has been a long, hot, yet fulfilling week. As I have been looking over the pictures I took, this one (above) has made me smile over and over again. We met in a public park and had some grandmas join our group of kids. And, yes, these grandmas even received candy for answering some questions from the Bible story correctly!
If I could choose only 5 pictures to show you that depict Ukrainian life, this would definitely be amongst those top 5... possibly even the top three. Ukrainian grandmas like the ones pictured above are such a part of life here. You see them everywhere you go. They are the matriarchs of society here. In this picture you can see them carrying out their favorite past time.... discussing. And in this particular picture they are discussing today's lesson of Zacchaeus!
