**Written while in Pskov, Russia**
It's been so long since I have traveled overseas that I forgot how the time change really affects me. I woke up at 2:30am, 4:30am, and eventually got up around 6:45am – so I think I am going to be a little tired tonight.
Today (Wednesday) we headed out to Pskov, and it quickly turned into a great adventure.
We encountered lots of snow (which is glorious to see, as long as I am not the driver). Sasha zipped around trucks, cars, and potholes. It is always good to awake from a quick nap to look through the front windshield to see you riding the bumper of an 18-wheeler. It reminds me of riding with Gennady!
Much like the UPS slogan (We love Logistics), it is one of those necessary components of strategic development. It may look seamless when you show up as part of the team, but this is where the hard work really pays off. These meetings are crucial for determining the best locations for the summer teams. We want to maximize impact for the summer teams, as well as for the nationals who will handle the follow-up.
The church is set next to this creek (or river), that is just picturesque, especially with the snow. You walk up the stairs and into the sanctuary which is a far cry from the church in America.
It is a simple ornate structure with pews made of wood that fan out around the speaker. The pillars resemble bamboo structures as they climb towards the ceiling that is also made out of wood beams.
This space is inviting, and you feel that you are meeting with the Lord when you walk in. I found myself taking a seat off to the side to do some work, but you quickly are enveloped by the the room.
Not sure what the plan is…but I don't think I am going to be bored.
