heading off to the Russian National MOPS Convention!

Posted by Picasa

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!

  1. My dear friend (an American) is married to a Russian and living in Rostov-na-Donu. Do you know if they have any MOPS groups in that region? I tried to look on the website but it did not have any available and I heard there are 50 total in Russia. Thank you so much for you help! God bless you for your work in Russia :) my husband and I (he is Russian) hope to live there again one day soon :).
