I want to be a Rock Star…

Third Day has a great song from their “Wired” CD called Rock Star.  In the end, Mac “discovers” that he doesn’t have what it takes and that its alright.

Well, I don’t really have any aspirations of being a rock star, now would I really want to be.  However, my colleagues and I have been trying for months to come up with a name for our team.

Our group is here in Kazakhstan to reach out to Russian speakers. However, I was hesitant to call them “Russian” since many of them are Ukrainians, Byelorussians, Moldovans, Germans, etc.  I was trying to call them Slavic, however, Germans do not fit that mold either.

Recently, I posted about a conversation I had with a German national who’s mother tongue is Russian.  He gave me some great insight and since then I have had several others confirm what he said to me.

So, then we talked about the team concept.  We are a “team” however, we are located in different cities stretching more than 1200 km (almost 750 miles).  So we have decided to call ourselves ROK group- Russians Of Kazakhstan group.

Please pray for us as we develop plans and strategies to reach the ROK’s!
