A Postcard from Russia

Hello friends,

We’ve just returned to Russia after a very good trip to Montenegro, Albania, Serbia and Romania. It was, as usual, a LONG drive and well worth it.

In Montenegro, we spent 3 weeks visiting with family, friends and ministry partners. Violeta and her new husband Stefanos (who were married in Denmark) had a celebratory party; thats us above with Olga’s mother Tanya. And, Olga’s sister has a new baby that we HAD to visit. I also met with ministry partners, talking through issues and having good fellowship with several long-term missionaries.

I made a quick trip to Albania to meet with a potential new Stoneworks partners, a young American lady who will move there next year. I met with her in the UK earlier this year, and it was good to meet with the leadership of her church in Albania. Perhaps she and the church will become new partners . . . .

In Serbia, we visited our good friends Jan and Nada Dudas and their family. We like them a lot, and on this trip we discussed the possibility of me leading a team to minister in their church next summer. I very much hope that works out.

Then we had a short visit with our friends and ministry partners David and Rodica McGuire. I spoke at the main church in town and also in a Hungarian village church. It’s gratifying to experience such good and pleasant friendships in the Lord.

So, we’re now in Russia for a bit. We’ll close down dacha soon and Val will start tennis (!) lessons soon. Life continues, and we are thankful for the life God has given us.
