It’s been a year!
We can hardly believe it, but we have now been here in Russia for a whole year! It feels like just yesterday we got off the plane and arrived at our new apartment, entering into a whole new country with a culture and language that we didn’t understand.
Now, as we look back on our first year here, we are happy to say that we now feel comfortable with certain aspects of language and we understand some parts of the culture. But we still have a ways to go before we truly are “fluent”. Throughout this next year we will continue to study this language and culture so that when we move out east to work with the people there we will truly be able to speak to them in a way that they can understand.
Thank you to those of you who have been faithful to sustain us through our first year here. We are excited for the future, we are excited to carry out Dad’s plan and we are thankful that He is faithful in every situation.
