A Russia Update

It's Julie writing again. Scott called this afternoon around 4:00 (which was Thursday morning there). He said he was doing well, and is really enjoying his teaching. Yesterday was his last day of teaching at his first stop of Petropavlosk, Kamchatka. Pastor Quill from the Fort Wayne seminary is also teaching with him. He said today was a free day, so they had a little time to do some sightseeing.

Scott said he worked with two different translators, a husband and wife team, Pastor Alexei and Lena Streltsov. We knew Alexei and Lena when we were in Fort Wayne. Alexei is now the rector of the Lutheran seminary in Novosobirsk. Lena told Scott that she remembered that I taught her and her husband English when we were in Fort Wayne. I taught English as a Second Language to some Russian children as well as some of the seminary students and their wives. But Alexei and Lena both had excellent English, so I doubt if I taught them much. But still, it is kind of ironic that I taught them, and now they are translating for my hubby!

Tomorrow Scott, Pastor Quill and Pastor Streltsov are traveling back to Vladivostok, and from there will take the train to the Chita region.
