Last night I visited the Ukrainian family I have gotten to know quite well. They invited me for a borsch dinner which is a delicious soup in their culture. The children greeted me with hugs, I joked with the wife about having dinner outside in the snowy night, and the husband and I talked about our ‘dream’ of the wife and one of the daughters opening a bakery and the two of us being the greeters sitting there drinking coffee.
They had other visitors who are family friends from Ukraine. They are a family of a husband, wife, a an ever so cute almost three old daughter. They just arrived here from Germany two weeks ago. The wife and daughter fled Ukraine to Germany first with the husband staying behind to share Jesus with people victimized by the war. Then the husband left Ukraine to join his wife and daughter in Germany leaving his guitar behind in Ukraine. Refugees fleeing war bring only bare necessities.
He was a worship leader in Ukraine. He led worship in his church in Ukraine and after the war started he would go out to the city center and play worship songs and then share Jesus with the people who stopped to listen.
After dinner we sat in the living room and shared worship music videos. It was a wonderful time of fellowship.
So my new project is to get an acoustic guitar for him. Please pray for me to find one for him.
Thank you for praying. God Bless.

Hey, Matt. What type of acoustic guitar did your friend have–nylon or steel string? He will also need a good case, for the instrument, and the accessories that go with it–guitar strap, capo, picks, and tuner. A basic set up, for beginners is around $200, but I’m guessing your new friend is no beginner. $300-500 for a quality used instrument, plus accessories is probably more like it.
Please email me with the particulars. firstname.lastname@example.org
God Bless, brother!
I didn’t know there are different kinds of strings 🙂
Always learn something through other bloggers. I sent an email thank you

I am keeping the Ukranian people and refugees in my prayers; praying for peace, provision, and an acoustic guitar.
Thank you for praying!!!
I see a theme beginning to emerge! Praying to a God who provides.
I see it too. God’s will is God’s bill!
Amen- God’s will is God’s bill
Amen. God does provide 🙂
