We had such a wonderful week! It is good to be back home, though. Our poor children are sick, and Anna has another cold. Please pray for everyone's health, especially that Anna would be feeling better before she has to fly out! I'll try to tell you about the congress after we get settled back in and start feeling better.
Also, I have two other rather serious prayer requests:
Our friends, the Egorov family, who are missionaries in Sudogda, were in a car accident on their way home from the congress. They have three children, two teenage boys and a three-year-old girl. They just adopted the little girl last week. The children are all fine, however the parents were hurt. Nadya (the mother) is in the hospital with a concussion or skull fracture; she is pregnant. Their car is totaled. I'm also especially worried about little Anya being without her new mother right now. She seemed to have bonded really well with her Mama already, but she was still getting used to her Papa.
For those of you who have been praying for Baby Vika, her family stopped in Moscow for a doctor's visit on their way to the congress, and the doctors put her into the hospital right away, instead of letting them go on. She will be having heart surgery on Monday. Please pray! (If you want to know her history, go to our prayer requests and look at what I've written about her in the past.)
Does anyone happen to know how to get in touch with my parents while they're at the family reunion in Alabama?
