I have been caught in a whirl of angel baby kisses, chatting friends, house packing and the general activity of taking care of business that can't be done long distance.
Today I have carved out a slice of time to sit at a coffee shop and write. It's a lovely hidden corner of Chippewa Falls at a place call High Bridge Coffee Shop. I am listening to quiet conversations buzzing around me about local celebs. Outside the shiney sun is cooled by a gentle breeze.
It's wonderful. Simply wonderful! I'm not sure which is my current favorite - hearing the English language or seeing the abundant sun!
But I didn't interrupt your day to tell you that. Some of my friends have asked about my travel and speaking schedule for this summer while I'm in the U.S. Here are the particulars:
June 30 to July 2 - Wisconsin District Family Camp, Shawano, Wisconsin
I will have books and things available in the tent out side of the main tabernacle
July 12 - Calvary Church, Bloomington, MN
Both Morning Services
July 19 - Pentecostal Assembly, Eau Claire, WI
Morning Service - 10:00 a.m.
July 19 - Abundant Life Church, Thorp, WI
Evening Service - 6:30 p.m.
I will also be back in Milwaukee the first week-end of August before I fly out again, but I don't know any particulars.
I will have books and Russian trinkets available for sale at the various churches which have invited me. Some of you may have heard some of the stories which I will be sharing, but some things cannot be written well and must be shared with pictures.
I do hope to see you there.
I also wanted to thank you, my friends and supporters, again for all of your help and encouragement. Prayers are amplified when they reach across the world. I know that sounds cliche. But it's honestly true. And I appreciate you.
I am going back to Moscow in August. One more year of miracles, grace and seed sowing.
If you would like more information or would like to become a financial partner with my ministry, please email me at email@example.com.
In the meantime, if you're looking for me, I am likely the granny typing frantically on a keyboard in the corner at High Ground Coffee Shop. Or the granny trailing behind a group of bikes on the way to the library. You might even see me basking in the sunlight soaking up Vitamin D and thanking God for another present to unwrap.
Stop by and say HEY if you get the chance!
