A Day In The Life
On Friday we drove north of the city to the town of Balakhnah to teach at the Cornerstone rehab center, and then later we drove to the town of Gorodets to teach at the homeless shelter also operated by Cornerstone Church. Here are some photos and video of the day.
The view as we leave our driveway
On the road to our co-worker Sveta's apartment
People double park right in the road!
The side street where Sveta lives
We saw this Hummer2 Pick-up on the way!
The sign below the large yellow sign is an advertisement for Viagra - only 100rubles! (about $3)
Going towards the river from the center of the city.
Down the hill to the new bridge
And, over the river we go
A church on the lower side of the river
Traveling through the lower city
And finally, an hour after we leave our apartment, we are at the edge of the city.
Traffic was not bad this day
On the open road outside the city
1/2 hour later we see the driveway to the rehab center
The Banya/washroom and laundry drying outside
Worship with the rehabilitants
More worship - peoples' lives being changed
17 people at the center presently
They are asking the Lord to send them 50
On the road, heading to Zavolzhe and then Gorodets
Snow and freezing rain was falling
After stopping at the supermarket to buy fruit for our friends at the homeless center,
we are on the road driving across the dam on the Volga river and it is getting darker.
By the time we arrive in Gorodets it is dark and snowing
The snow covered dirt road to the homeless center.
In the spring it is a sea of mud.
This is the small kitchen inside the homeless center
for the current population of about 20 people.
The house has two small bedrooms, a large living room and this kitchen
Most of the homeless are sleeping on mattresses on the floor.
Some of the brothers and sisters at the center.
We hear some great stories of God's grace here.
