Our Final Destination

Hi Friends,

We arrived here in Siberia yesterday morning after a solid 24 hours of traveling.  We left Kiev at 4:45 Tuesday morning, spent most of the day in the airport in Moscow, then took a 6.5 hour flight to the edge of Siberia. Our bodies are worn down and our minds are spinning with too much new information, but we are so thankful to be here! Pictures to come…

Thanks for checking out our blog!

Headed Back!


Hi Friends,

We have bought plane tickets!  The departure date is March 7, please think about us as we wait to receive our visas and begin organizing our things to head back.

Thanks for checking out our blog!


…we went to see Micah’s dad and step-mom who are now in Virginia.  So instead of needing to fly out to California to visit them we can drive down.  We had a nice time visiting with them and getting to see the area where they live.

The next few were taken by Violet:


Now that we are starting to get settled here in Pa with Katrina’s family, we’d like to show you a little bit of what we were up to last week. Our organization held a conference in Germany during that time which was very enjoyable and relaxing! We left feeling motivated and encouraged to continue on with the work that we are doing in Russia.

Packing up

Well, it has begun. We’ve started going through all of our belongings. Everything is either getting packed to stay here and be saved until we return, getting packed to come back to the states with us, thrown out or given away.

The girls are enjoying playing with these new “toys” we have all over the place now.  It keeps them entertained for a bit, which helps when we need to get some things done.

A couple from our fellowship is allowing us to keep most of our things with them, which helps us out a lot.  There aren’t really storage areas here and most people have very small apartments, so there aren’t many options for us.

Moving is helping us get rid of some unnecessary things that seem to find there way into the hidden crooks of crannies of our apartment.   The week before we leave, we will move our storage items to the other couples apartment.  After that we will be doing a deep clean of our apartment.


Please be thinking of us and for our time in Germany at conference before we head back to the states, that it would be a time of encouragement and that it would be profitable in better equipping us for the future.
