Yalta Computer OutreachJune 22-July 8, 2006 Exeter Chapel Cranston Christian Fellowship
Our team was made up of 10 people from RI, 1 from Canada, 3 Ukrainians and Larry and Debbie from Germany.
Training times together in the spring helped the team prepare for their ministry in Ukraine
On Thursday, June 22, 10 team members met at Exeter Chapel to drive down to JFK Airport
Alvina, our Canadian team member, met us at JFK with a smile!
In Kiev, we changed terminals…several times…
Then, we were on our way to Simferopol, our final stop
Were we ever happy to see Larry waiting for us at the airport!
Team members slept in rooms at the church…
We ate our meals together in the same room where we had classes
Lunch… we had soup every day
Then we were off to the bank to exchange our money
Vera came down from Kiev to translate for us the entire time. She works at a university as a technical English teacher and did a fantastic job!
Monday morning registration brought in more students than we could fit in the class…
Most of the students learned about the classes from a poster placed on telephone poles in town
We team-taught various segments from the front of class…
…while teachers helped 2-3 students at each computer station
After about an hour and a half of teaching, one of the team members shared a devotional
