We have a team of four starting the year off in Perm, Russia! While it is quiet the climate change from what we are use to here in Texas, we go to share Christ's love. For those in the bitterness of winter to be warmed by HIS word.
We received our first message from one of our team members:
Hey friends! Just wanted to check in from Perm. We made it safe and were blessed by safe travel, on time flights (sort of) and a practically empty plane from Frankfurt to Perm so we were able to stretch out and get a little rest before arriving. Yesterday (this morning your time) was Brads weekly Tuesday night Bible study. We had a great turn out and met lots of new people. We saw several of our friends we made this past summer as well. It hit 0 degrees yesterday and the snow is beautiful! Everyone keeps telling us that the weather is very mild right now...much warmer than usual!
