She's left us and is getting married!
Christina and Shenya.....the one who took her away!
Christina and Josiah cruising on the volga.
Well my dear friend and babysitter has left to Ukraine. Christina is one of the few Russian friends I have here. This past week I have cried about it every day. Even though I am so happy for her, I am also selfish and would prefer that she remain here.
This is the first night Christina babysat for us.....some friends had to come also to make sure Josiah would be happy!
Christina is a really godly young woman and desires to worship God with her life. She is also a little on the crazy side like me and I have enjoyed our silly conversations and text messages. She met a wonderful man and she will be getting married in the next few months. We are really going to miss her so much. I know she will be back to Samara to visit but it won't be the same.
I wish her all the happiness and will not cease to pray for her and her future husband. This is a part of ministry that I have always disliked.......the good-byes!
