In 8 days, my wife and I leave for Russia. I’ve lost count of how many trips I’ve made, but this one will be extra-special since it will be Karen’s first time in the former Soviet Union. The day after landing in Moscow, I will teach a one-day conference on the family at a church that was only planted a couple years ago and the following day preach the Lord’s Day services there. The next day we will fly southeast for a week of teaching on the family. Please pray for me as I wrap up preparations for my class and for Karen as we prepare for this trip. We are excited to see what the Lord does in our hearts and in the hearts of the men and women with whom we spend time. Thanks so much!
