Hello UOO Family,
We are in deep planning for our summer missions trip. Dates will be August 26 – September 6, 2016.
Hello UOO supporters, as you know, we have advocated for adoption ever since adopting Natalie Stoesz in 2003. Mentoring families has been such a wonderful blessing as well as exciting to see orphans adopted into their forever families! It brings so much joy to us, the adoptive families as well as the surrounding community every time an orphan comes home to their forever family! About 10 years ago, Bart and Kathy stepped out in faith and obedience and answered the call to adopt. We joyfully shared our stories and journeys together as adoptive families.

What is Ukraine like? What are the orphans like? Where do they live? How can I help?
These are all questions we get asked on a regular basis. What better way to answer these questions than to experience Ukraine first hand, on a Vision Trip with Ukraine Orphan Outreach!
May 3-10, 2014 we are hosting a Vision Trip in Ukraine.
You will have the opportunity to visit our boy’s transition home for aged out orphans – House of Grace, visit a local orphanage, meet with strategic partners in Ukraine and learn more about about how you can play a strategic role in helping orphans in Ukraine.

The UOO~Grace Place mission team is preparing for the trip to Ukraine. There are currently 11 missionaries signed up with room for possibly one more. They will depart Colorado on July 17 and travel to Kyiv, Ukraine. From there they will embark on an overnight train South East to the Donetsk region to a town called Kramators’k. The House of Grace is located there and from July 20-24 the team will spend time doing construction projects at the home as well as spend time with the boys and house parents. From July 25-July 31, the team will travel to Lugansk (Eastern Ukraine on the Russian border) to assist with an Orphan Vacation Bible school. The last day will be spent back in Kyiv with a bit of time to sight see and learn about the rich history of Ukraine.

Good Samaritin Ministries Day
Our day started with a return to our familiar hotel restaurant called “The Georgian.” We had an awesome breakfast of mashed potatoes, bologna style sausage, beets mixed with onions, bitter cheese and hard bread. We all loved it and ate every morsel. After a quick catch up with e-mails (wi-fi only in the lobby) we were greeted with our dear friend and Ukraine Coordinator of Good Samaritan Ministries, Alex B. http://www.gsmukraine.com/MainENG.html
We went to the village Vegoda to visit their rehabilitation center that is presently housing about 5 men. The men have ranged from 18 to age 50 but are typically in their 20’s and 30’s.
