Sometimes people have jokingly said to me, “How is Mother Russia?” or “You’re going back to the Motherland!” But in reality, Russia is my distant homeland. My family immigrated to the US in the early 1900’s with roots from Russia & Ukraine, so I feel like a part of me is going back “home”. I was blessed to visit Moscow for about 10 days, it was a time of worship, fellowship, teaching & encouragement. Here are some pictures…
Visiting our old fellowship
Fun in the metro!
Catherine the Great’s ballroom
The oldest mall in Moscow – ГУМ – Goom
Visited our old apartment building
So good to see old friends!
With my old friend & language helper – Andrei. I miss that guy!
Time of singing

The last couple weeks have been a time of transition for us. We’ve traveled thousands of miles over land and sea, changed continents, endured three flights with three tired children, ending up in western Florida. We will spend the next month looking to the Lord as we move into another ministry. We’d appreciate your prayers as we look ahead to what’s next.
We were in Moscow for a few days to say goodbye to friends there. (Moscow State University pictured above)
Thanks Deana for letting us stay with you!
We are relaxing in a quiet beautiful little community
With lots of critters

We have less than a week left here in Moscow before we move to our next home in Siberia. This is a bittersweet time for us as it is very hard to say goodbye to those that we have come to love here. On the other hand, we are very ready to move on with the work that HE has prepared us to do.
We would ask for your thoughts in the next couple weeks as we head to Ukraine to get new visas, then fly back to Russia and on to Siberia.
Thanks for checking out our blog!
The girls are ready to go!
