Dearest Friends,

Thursday, May 1st, I am leaving for Russia. I will meet Sam and Silvanna Shaw in Frankfurt and then we will travel to Kazan, 500 miles east of Moscow. It is the capital of old Tartarstan, a Muslim area. Three Ukrainian friends are traveling 3 days on a Russian train to join us, do puppets, and help with translation. Please pray for all of us as we travel!

As always, I am concerned about the luggage arriving with us and without damage. Please pray that we will have no difficulties in customs.

Begin to pray for the children and ask the Father to call many to Himself! Ever since I was a very little girl, I have prayed for the people of Russia. To me, this trip is a privilege that I never imagined that I would have! I am really excited!

Please stay on your knees!

In Jesus,
Linda for the team
