After a wonderful week with our little kids at the HIV Orphanage, we are leaving for Novgorod (2.5 hours south of St Petersburg) to meet the kids where we will do a camp for two weeks.
The last day with the little kids was a little different than we expected.
After we arrived we found out that the kids went to the zoo! We were sad, but excited for them, since that is something they do not do very often.
And it was for the best, so that the kids would not be crying when we say goodbye.
So, on Friday we played with a different group of babies and toddlers.
It was a blessing to see them open up and give us smiles and laugh at being tickled.
We left with tears in our eyes, but knowing that God has them in His arms and will take care of their future. We trust Him to be there for each child and will continue to pray for these special kids who forever will be in our hearts.
On Friday night we went to see the amazing ballet of Swan Lake! It was so beautiful and so elegant! A fun night to dress up and be out in the city.
Saturday was our last day to see and do everything we still wanted to see and do in St Petersburg! We spent it shopping and sightseeing.
Please pray for our team as we head south – to a new ministry location. Pray for the kids and teens that will hear the Gospel, some for the first time.
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! We wait with anticipation for your comments!
