22 Oct Day 04 in France, from Sens to LaBorde
August 4th, 2017 – Day 04 of our 26 day, 11 flight and 4 country adventure, Capturing Grace in France, Ukraine, Russia and Spain.
This man and his boys… don’t try to tell Gennadiy Mokhnenko that a world without orphans is not possible. After one day with this unconventional pastor from Ukraine, he has me convinced! The horrors that most of these boys have experienced leaves one speechless but the healing they have found through their earthly and heavenly adoption leaves one filled with hope and gratefulness.
Today we pedaled from Sens, France to La Borde, tomorrow we roll into Paris.
“We could all be the ones outside the gate. We all could have fallen on hard times into hard ways; we could have been the ones fighting the Lord’s Resistance Army slitting our child’s throat in the middle of the night; we could be the one born into a slum, violently raped and left for dead, the one born into AIDS, into starvation, into lives of Christless desperation. The reason you are inside the gate for such a time as this–is to risk your life for those outside the gate.”
