Time for an Update

We began this blog in June while we were in America. I mostly wanted to see how a blog worked and to see if it would be a worthwhile project.

Since being back in Russia we have been busy with life here. Language lessons, hosting an American team and just living our day to day life has kept us pretty busy.

Our son, Jon Mark, who is stationed somewhere in Kuwait recently wrote to me and said, "Hey what's the point of having a blog if you don't update it"? "Doh!. That point being well taken I will try and post regular updates and articles.

Today is Sunday, and in about an hour we are off to church. The picture is of Karen about 1 block from the church we attend.

Getting to church is a 40 minute bus ride and a 5 minute walk. We will be going to church today with Ira, a young woman who is a university student and a new believer. Ira is doing some interpreting work for us. Later in the day, back at our apartment we will be meeting with Edward and Vadim, two Russian guys who are in the process of planting a new church. This will be the second planted Foursquare church in Russia! (If you have any questions about Foursquare or planting churches just leave me a comment). Ira will interpret for us.

The weather today is pretty nice. Sort of like New England this time of year. Soon we will see some colder weather and snow. The days are getting shorter here. It is now dark by 7:00 PM. When we adjust for daylight savings time this month we will begin the long, dark winter days. We love Russia, but the winters can be a bit daunting.
