The picture above is one of the many beautiful scenes I saw while on vacation in Karelia (a Russian province north of St. Petersburg). We finally have the freedom to travel within Russia, and since the middle of July I’ve been traveling more often than I’ve been at home. Everyone it seems is taking advantage of the easing of restrictions and the nice weather–all of the tourist spots are crowded and downtown St. Petersburg is full of people! The churches were also quick to start organizing events, and even though so many camps were cancelled due to COVID-19, the Ingrian Church has been able to plan and hold several camps and seminars already. Read through my latest newsletter to see what’s been going on!
As always, tank you for taking the time to read through the newsletter and see a little bit of what God is doing in this part of the world. I so value your prayers!
