It seems like it’s been a long time in the planning process, but I guess it really hasn’t been. Today, at 1:42 our team of 21 is heading to Saint Petersburg, Russia for a ministry trip to orphans in the former Soviet Union.
We’ll travel from Grand Rapids, Michigan with Way-FM and Mission Network News listeners to the historic city was there are thousands of orphaned children who need love and a Savior.
Our goal the next nine days? To share Jesus through vacation Bible school, games, crafts and a lot of fun. I’m told we’re going to teach the teens how to line dance. That ought to be interesting. LOL
You can come here to find pictures and videos. I may actually update my personal blog (because it’s easier to upload photos and videos), but I will provide a link from here to the blog. If you’d like to bookmark it, go to http://gregorysyoder.wordpress.com.
Pray for us!
I’ll be on the air with Janet Parshall today on Moody Radio. She’s hosts ‘In the Market’. She ALWAYS asks great questions. My prayer today is that God will use both of us to encourage Christians to get out of the pew and do something for God. We have many issues to discuss today:
1. Pakistan floods
2. Ramadan begins tomorrow
3. Afghan medical team execution
4. Kenya Constitutional referendum
Lots to chat about, not enough time to get it all in, I fear.
