Some Answers For Rick

Hey Rick,

You had a few questions on one of your posts, so I thought I'd answer them here for all to see:

1) Do Russians have cars? Some do ... but none of the Christians, at least that I've met. We got a car tour of Nizhny yesterday courtesy of one of Masha's English students. He owns a construction business and is a 50-50 partner (he called it a "sleeping partner"; we'd call it a silent partner) in a bicycle shop. He has a really nice car. There are indeed lots of cars on the streets, very European in style. I don't know who drives them, though. Most people seem to take public transportation and walk.

2) Eye color. Haven't really noticed. But I have noticed that Russians are just like Americans in that they come in all shapes, sizes, hair colors, etc. Obesity does not appear to be a problem -- how could it be when so many seem to struggle to eat -- and many of the women are quite tall, including the teenage Christians, but I'd say they're very much like Americans.

3) Favorite color. My guess is black. It's a common color of the clothes.

Hey Danny...I was ribbing you a little with these q's. Reminding you of all the walking you are doing, and the food you aren't use to, and the stupid questions people ask celebrities.

Oh I just used the rib word. Peg and I are headed down to Fayetteville Tenn tomorrow to see her dad (not really because Mike, Jenny, and the only important one Trey will also be there!). And in your honor I am going to eat at the best barbeque place on earth!

Kidding aside what a great flow of love and prayers crossing the big pond. Tell Jeff the pictures are great. And both of you are doing a wonderful work for the Lord. And we are all benefiting from your experiences. I also think the Christians there are not going to forget your visit and for a long time. And then they will think back on the two of you and be energized again by the memory.

Be safe...
