UKRAINE—In a recently war-torn country that still feels the effects of a military presence, our church members have gathered together to form the "Angel's Hand" Charitable Foundation. The charity is composed of a community of people who have a desire to help others. Their goal is to help all those in need and who, for whatever reason, may be in trouble.

 Those who have taken part in a campaign to collect funds for important church projects often meet with sad disappointments and happy surprises. And sometimes, when children are involved, the seriousness of their approach to the whole matter may be so amusing that you cannot help laughing. And some stories that come from such occasions cannot easily be forgotten.
