Our Last Report

Russian TrainWell, this is the last report that will be sent from the small, but mighty Siberia Team. It has been a busy, busy week for us as we are trying to pack in as much work time as possible. We did take a short sightseeing trip into Shadrinsk yesterday to buy some last minute souvenirs. The team had fun buying some Russian clothes and hats to take home with them. After our 20-minute bus ride back to the base, we went straight to work on the building….trying to get more winterizing done. The Russian team is working on putting in the fence posts, as well as continuing work on the banya building (the Russian bathhouse). The other Russian Team, Soldiers for Christ, will be returning (tomorrow) Friday night so that both teams can begin Debrief on Saturday morning. We will continue working on Saturday while they begin their Debrief classes. Then on Sunday night our bus will come to pick us up for our 4-hour bus ride to the airport in Ekaterinburg, where early on Monday morning we will begin our flight to Florida for Debrief. It will be a sad night for us to have to say “good-bye” to the many friends we have made here in Krasnaya Niva. The pictures of their smiling faces and the love that they have shared with us will be forever in our hearts and minds. We praise the Lord for allowing us to have this opportunity to come to share His Love with them. Our head leaders, Steve and Gay Petersen, and their two children, Timothy and Faith, will be staying an extra two weeks to help with the Bible School and continuing the work at the base. Volunteers, Eivind and Carol Bray, will also be here to help. We ask that you would continue to pray for them as well as they are “left behind”. THANK YOU so much for your prayers this summer. Please pray for the team as they go through their Debrief classes and as they go home. Pray that they would diligent in doing their daily devotions and studying God’s Word. Pray also that the Russian teens who will be headed home on Tuesday, will do the same. May the Lord bless you as you continue to serve Him.
