Whilst we have been a small team this time, it has been a productive fortnight at Transition House. Three of us have now returned home and are reflecting on all that we have achieved over the last two weeks.  John (Collinson), you will recall, had already been helping in Odessa for six weeks before we arrived and we have left him there for another three to continue the work (as well as learn Russian!). We have continued great fellowship with our brothers and sisters at Grace Baptist Church who have looked after us well whilst we completed a variety of jobs - although there is still a lot to do!

A selection of photographs below shows some of the work completed and also what we did when we were not working.

There are signs that the Building Project is nearing completion, though there is more to do and we are hoping to send another Team out in September 2016.  Please contact John or Rob if you are interested.
