From Montenegro to Russia

We recently drove home to Russia from Montenegro.  It was a beautiful drive along the Croatian coast and up into Hungary.  There we visited missionary friends and saw (rainy) Budapest.  The relationships were great, the city was beautiful and we hope to return.

Then we drove to Minsk, Belarus to visit Spring of Revival, a Stoneworks program.  Olga Goncharenko and her team are doing a great job there.  We enjoy our time with them and fully support them in all they do.  Visit the Stoneworks site to learn more about Spring of Revival.

Then we headed into Russia and are now safely back in our flat in St. Petersburg.

We really enjoy this traditional music from Montenegro.

Wesley Trip to Montenegro

Here’s a slideshow I put together from our recent visit to Montenegro with the mission team from The Wesley Foundation in Athens, GA.

I realized that I don’t have too many pictures of the ministry times, because we were busy being involved in the work rather than being outside of it. Still, you can see the people and the land.

And I realized that my wife is in there a lot — I wonder why?  🙂

The music is tradtional music from the area. Zhelyan gave me the CD.

From Russia to Montenegro

Yesterday Olga and I arrived in Montenegro after driving from Russia. We covered 2500km in three days, and drove through the heart of Eastern Europe: Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro. It was a great trip, and now we’re getting ready to meet a team from the US that will help the church here. I’ll post more about that trip soon.

Here’s a slideshow of our drive —
