Here I am in front of a 3000 year old Sphinx. This statue sits on the site of a road and gets frosty in the winter. Those Egyptians knew how to build things to last!
Lucy, Philly, Ana and Olga admire a wall painting at the Winter Palace.
Here is a great example of the majestic beauty of St. Petersburg. The lady standing at the base of the right statue lived with us in the States for several months. Those are her daughters with her.
Gosha and Natasha put up signs advertising for an evangelistic concert Street Cry is putting on. There were several people at church the next Sunday who had come to Christ at the concert.
Here I am eating dinner at a Russian family home. Think of it as a micro orphanage. It only has 4 boys and 4 girls. Like a foster home it is much better for children than a traditional orphanage. The kids loved my beat boxing.
Thomas, Anna and Jenya at St. Isaacs. Natasha likes taking off center photos like this.
Sasha, Thomas, Natasha, Jenya and Philly. I'm the only American in the photo. Everyone else is Russian except Philly (far right) who is English. The children are orphans from the family home.
This is a Russian Datcha (summer home). It's not much of a place to live in the winter but it is pretty none the less.
As cool as this hat may be my Russian friends tell me only old men wear them. Oh well.
Books in a Russian Christian bookstore.
This is a battlefield from the Winter War between Finland and Russia. The Winter War kicked off WWII for Russia.
I named this statue the people's statue because its just a base. Anyone can pose to be immortalized on film.
