Back to the Grind!

Since returning to Moscow from Germany, we've much of our time catching up and resuming our normal schedule.  Here are a few things that have resumed since we've been back:

  • English Kids Club -- we started teaching last week, and continue to spend an hour with 15+ six and seven year olds each Wednesday
  • Alpha Course -- Last Thursday was the big kickoff to this semester's Alpha Course.  Our friend Andrea and I will be leading the discussions.
  • English Movie Night -- This Friday is our big kickoff!
  • English Cafe -- Because of a wedding, we don't know if we will be able to attend, but the bi-monthly English Cafe will be held this Saturday.
We are also going to be able to see some great friends in the next few days.  Our friend Tanya, whom we have not seen in months, will be meeting us for dinner tonight!  We are so excited to see her!  

Fun story.  Tanya is a big Anne Rice fan.  Rice is THE author of vampire novels.  But recently, I want to say within the last 5 years or so, she gave up vampire novels when she became a Christian and started writing novels about the life of Christ.  One of the last times we saw Tanya she handed us the first book Christ the Lord:  Out of Egypt to read.  She wants to know what we think about the book since we are believers.  Beth's in the middle of the book now and I plan to read it after.  It will be interesting to share our thoughts, and compare/contrast what Rice has written to the actual writings about Jesus in the Gospels.
