Anybody Want a Dog?

Hello friends,

Just earlier this week we found out that we are not going to be able to take Sputnik with us to Moscow.  Beth and I have been pretty sad about it, but also stressed out because we are (fingers crossed) supposed to be flying out on April 13th.  If you or anyone you know wants a dog, let us know!

Sputnik is probably one of the coolest dogs out there.  I really didn't think I'd like a dog as much as I do Sputnik.  He's very friendly, very playful, and needs people.  He's up-to-date on his shots and is neutered.

Isn't he the coolest?

Catching Up -- Snow in Richmond!

Things have been quite crazy here-- we're finally posting things we wanted to weeks ago.

Remember that winter snowstorm that swept up the Eastern seaboard?  We got some here too:






Of course, like a kid we took to the hills with whatever sled-like object we could find.  Many failed, few were actually sleds:

And a friend Josh demonstrates one of the crazier, but more fun slopes:

Pray for Us!

We've run into some issues with our visa application to get into Moscow-- so Beth and I are running off to D.C. tomorrow to get an additional passport needed.  We need it fast (within days), hence the going in person to Passport Services.

Sorry for the lack of posts;  we'll try to get you caught up on these past few weeks in the near future.  Training has been fantastic for the most part.  Keep us in your prayers!
