I'm leavin' on a jet plane...

...don't know when I'll be back again. 

This song has never been so true.  I leave in just a few short hours to travel back to the airport in Indianapolis, then to DC, then to London, then to Moscow, then to Vladimir.  I'll be in Vladimir a long time from now.  I haven't even calculated it because it is just a long trip!!  :)

Here's how you can be praying as I leave:

1. Safety for the travels and my time there.
2. That I am able to get internet in the flat quickly so I can actually stay in contact with the rest of the world...and because I'm going to want to talk to Barry as much as possible.
3. Pray for Barry and I as we are apart these 10 days or so.  I'm NOT looking forward to being away from him for that long.  That's really my biggest concern - how much I'll miss him and not like not being able to just pick up my cell phone to call him.
4. Pray for Sveta's passport to come back to us more quickly than expected.
5. And, please be praying for my visit with Sveta on Friday (Thursday night your time).

Thanks for all the prayers.  I think Barry and I will both try to post as we are able.
Love you all!


  1. You are both in my prayers. It will be a joyful reunion when Barry comes to Russia!

    Love you,

  2. God's blessings on all three of you! May you be reunited soon.

  3. "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:19
    Praying for strength, endurance, health, wisdom, peace and joy in the journey. I know He'll provide! :)
    Can't wait to see His faithfulness. Thanks for sharing your journey with us!
