youth leader conference

It was so cool for Jody this weekend because he go to do what he loves to do! He loves training ministers in how to reach youth. He was given the priviledge to do this this weekend with men from all over the "krai" or "State". 21 men came for this event and are prayerfully considering what God is wanting them to do in their area. Pray with us for these men of God as they seek His will.

Women's Day!! Very popular here!

Here Women's Day is on the 8th of March and this is a day where all females are celebrated! All ages get gifts and have this day to rest. In these pictures you see me with the girls having a program that their teachers had planned to celebrate the girls and their moms. We had a lot of fun dancing, the kids sang a song to us, and we played lots of games!

Us at the circus

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go to the circus. We always enjoy this time and make memories. It has become our winter tradition to go to the circus even in Russia. Something interesting about this circus was that the only animals involved were cats, dogs, and pigs. It was very funny actually and the kids loved it. The clown was the best part because he interacted with the audience and was VERY funny!
