A Small Sample of Pictures from the Journey to Russia


We just finished our Easter Celebration Service and headed to bed for our flight home tomorrow. More on our final day in Moscow will come in my final blog posting from the trip. But while I have internet access at a little cafe in our hotel, I thought I would upload a sampling of the 2,500+ plus pictures our team took during the course of our week here. Enjoy these few shots and captions…and know that there are more where these came from!
