Heading Home Soon
Today is Monday November 27.
We are heading back to Russia Thursday afternoon. We will be spending the next few days packing and re-packing things trying to fit in as much as we can into our luggage. We have only a few more days in which to see our children and grandchildren. Those moments are precious as we know it will probably be a year or more before we see them again. We are very happy to be going back to Russia despite the separation from family and friends.
Yesterday we spoke at "The Blessed of the Lord" church in Woburn, MA. This congregation, led by Pastor Betty Jacovides, is one of our most faithful supporters. We have been friends for over ten years and always enjoy the opportunity to visit the church and share what the Lord is doing.
Last Sunday, November 19 we were in Charlestown, NH speaking at Life Fellowship Foursquare Church. This vibrant growing congregation is led by Pastors Dave and Cindy Grasso. The church has made the decision to become a part of our support team, contributing toward our ministry monthly, and they have collected hats, mittens and scarves which they will be sending to us for distribution to the needy in Russia. We had a wonderful time speaking and afterwards sharing a meal with the missions group in the church.
We will be very busy over the next month as we adjust to the time change, re-start our language study, begin a young marrieds Bible study, meet with our church planters and plan a week of outreach in January.
Thanks to everyone who embraced us and blessed us on this trip to America. We would not be able to do the work we are doing in Russia without your help.
