Czech Out

Our apartment is a mess once again. We've emptied out our personal possessions that need to go with us. We've managed to jam everything into our seven suitcases. By the time you read this, we'll already be in our new city - St. Petersburg, Russia.

My husband will be teaching at the Ingrian Lutheran Seminary in a town close to St. Petersburg. He is excited about getting back into the classroom where he'll be teaching young men who are studying to be pastors in their church.

Last May, when we left the States to come to Prague, we had no idea what living in Europe would be like. After our year here, I'm not as anxious about living in St. Petersburg. It will take a couple weeks to get used to the transportation system since they have a metro, tram, and bus system like Prague does. After we find and get set up in a flat, we'll learn where the grocery store, bank, meat store, etc in our neighborhood. Life probably won't be too much different than European life in Prague.

Except for the language... We've been studying Russian since January with a tutor here in Prague. I think we've learned quite a bit, but it really means that now we have an idea about how much we don't know. I'm nervous just thinking about getting through customs at the airport on Wednesday.

We know that God goes with us to do His work in Russia. Because of that I'll be able to sleep tonight before flying out tomorrow morning.

So, starting next week, I'll be sharing my new and exciting life in Russia. Stay tuned!
