congrats to Spencer!!

Yesterday Spencer was able to log on and check his email.... he just found out that he has been accepted into YWAM's Discipleship Training School in Kiev, Ukraine!

He will be studying the Bible with students from various countries and the lessons are taught in both English and Russian.

We are very proud of him! He set this goal to attend the program two years ago when Tom taught a class there in Kiev and he finally realised his dream!

Of course Alida is lamenting the fact that Nathan will be in America and Spencer will be in Ukraine while she and Tom are in Russia. Our family of four will be spread out over three countries.

Spencer lovingly reminded Alida yesterday he "is not leaving the planet!"


  1. Wow! Congratulations! That is great. But when does he have to leave?

  2. Congratulations!

    And welcome back. Hope you are getting enough rest!

  3. Spencers comment sounds like something my Matthew would say. :)

    Congrats to Spencer for reaching his goal. It's great to see kids grow up wanting to serve the Lord.

  4. School starts for Spencer in September... so we have a another month or so with him before he takes flight!

  5. congrats, Spencer! We're praying that God will do great things in your life through this experience. Don't forget your Russian!
