Today we had to say our final goodbyes to the children that we have spent the last three weeks with at the TB Center. All of the children have touched our hearts in many ways and it was really difficult saying goodbye. We have made memories that are going to last a lifetime. Our time here is Russia has been full of laughs, love, and joy. Russia will always have a place in our hearts because of the beautiful children, generous people, and tasty food. We knew we were going to see God’s work here before we came, but we didn’t know exactly what it was going to look like. As we look back on our trip we can see God in every experience and every smile of the children from the TB center. All of these children were full of joy and they were all so loveable; this is why it was so hard leaving them. We made strong connections with 45 kids that we couldn’t even have a full conversation with (without a translator). As we fly back to America on Sunday, part of our hearts are going to be left in Russia. Please pray for the children at the TB center, pray for their health and happiness. Also, please pray for a stress free and safe journey home. We look forward to seeing our families and friends, and telling your all about our trip!
Love, Team Novgorod
