Leah Aleyeva, the National Director of MOPS for Russia, (pictured above) asked Tom to speak on "Words That Hurt and Words That Heal" this week at the Russian National MOPS Convention. Leah also requested that both of us speak on "How to Survive in a Marriage with an Alcoholic." She believes that this topic is much needed here in Russia and is hoping that the women will be eager to take what they learn and pass it on to the moms in their groups.
We are not sure how many women will be in attendance. Two representatives from each MOPS group are allowed to attend. There are a total of 50 MOPS groups registered here in Russia. Our group in Krasnodar is #50!
Tom and I both feel honored to be able to participate in MOPS on a national level. The convention will last from today until Saturday... please keep us in your prayers!
