Da svedanya is goodbye in Russian. Tuesday morning at 4:00 our friends from the west boarded a train to go home. They will travel more than 3 days to get home.
We had a wonderful time of praising and worshiping our Lord Monday night as we reflected on their trials and successes. I hope to share with you in the coming days some of their stories.
However, right now I must get myself packed up to move out of the apartment, take my things to the garage and in the mean time have several meetings today.
We will leave from here around 2 p.m. Wednesday to have dinner in Astana before flying out to the US on Thursday morning. Check in begins at 1 a.m.
