A Few Pics From Vladivostok

Wow… Since we arrived here in the far east of Russia we have hit the ground running. It was quite a bit easier flying without all our little ones in tow but it is still exhausting to fly over seven time zones! The evening we arrived at Pastor Yuri’s home we had a gathering with five families from his church that were interested in the concepts of family discipleship and home education. We all sat around a table and enjoyed sweet Russian desserts and a very edifying conversation. It was the most lively interaction we have had with Russians so far as they shared their honest thoughts and reactions to the ideas of parents being responsible for the education of their children and not the government. Here are a couple pics from that evening…

And here are our sweet hosts, Yuri and Sveta with Baby Owen…

The next day we headed to a nearby town to share with Pastor Timothy (a Korean missionary) and his Church. After that gathering we drove about an hour to Pastor Edwards church to sleep for the night. We arrived at midnight and were welcomed with a Russian feast fit for a king! Here is a pic of that church

Since this picture we have spoken at two more churches in the last 24 hours.  We are totally exasusted but trying to make the most of our short time here in far east Russia.  The pastors are so happy to have us here to share as they very rarely have people come to minister due to the remote location.  I have more pictures and stories to share but we have limited internet and it is costly so I will post them in a few days when we return to St. Petersburg!
