During my three-month stay in Ukraine, I lived in the dorm at ETS, which gave me a wonderful
opportunity to build relationships with fellow students from the various nations. Tea
parties and laughter over my limited Russian and their limited English were frequent.
Sharing spoonfuls of homemade blackberry jam while sipping my tea was a treat. I sang
with the worship team for our chapel services when they had the songs printed in English.
Trying to lip-synch unknown Russian lyrics proved to be a challenge.
