A man of many talents

Sunday July 29,2007

Two years ago Slavik installed my sink, today he is a new deacon at our church in Russia.

It was his Sunday to preach. Slavik is a natural. He was at home in the pulpit. I know that Tom would have enjoyed seeing Slavik up there.

He spoke on keeping your focus on God's word so that you can step out in faith. It is only when we look at our circumstances or listen to doubters around us that we are likely to fall.


  1. It's great to see lay people doing God's work. It's especially fun to see how they have grown in Christ to become great Men and Women of God.

    I love reading your blog. It's fun learning about a different culture. I've often wished to be a missionary - so I guess I'll live vicariously through you.

  2. Glad to see you made it safely! Those photo's were beautiful! Can't wait to see more.

  3. That is such the truth. Ther is an interesting blog thing here where everyone is showing the inside of the refrigerator. I bet all the huge refers would blow the minds of the Russians.
