|Another cup of coffee?|
The Steinbach team started walking down the street to the house, after a number of farewells around 7:40 am to get started on another day of building walls.
Finally Jack took a quick look around for forgotten items, and the last suitcase was squeezed in the back of the car. Victor drove off (if you are wondering where the big blue van is, it needs a repair, so they were in the mission car) for Kiev... with a few stops planned along the way. Including one just up the street for a last team photo... or a few.

|Garry really likes the workbench that Neil designed|
- and then they were off to visit orphanages, while the Steinbach team, Garry and the students got to work.
coffee time again... the students enjoy bonding with the teams over coffee, tea, cookies and the candy the students give them to try.
Garry got a phone call late that morning... Jack was missing his suitcase, the one with his passport!
Since they would be heading back in the direction of Dniprepetjisk, we were supposed to find it and meet them with it near the big bull statute on the highway. By the time they finished at the orphanages, it was late afternoon and Garry drove it there along with a few tools they planned to take back to Canada and had forgotten to take with them. He had to wait a little longer than planned because Victor had been stopped by the police. We had finished dinner when he got home, but he did get some chicken and dumplings.
Some of the team went to visit the girls group home that evening, and enjoyed their time there. They took some more of the donated shoes that they brought in their suitcases to give away. Two of the girls had come to our house late that afternoon and were excited to chose new shoes.
