With barely a month left before we leave Russia for a little while, we’re starting to do several “ending things”. The school where Thomas teaches will be done for the year on Monday. Friday Thomas had the last choir rehearsal of the year, which was quite inspiring. (Getting a bunch of white and asian kids to sing with soul seemed to be a little challenging.)
The school honored the teachers at a special lunch at a restaurant in the city center. The food was delicious, and the company was lots of fun! We got to talk in English and Russian, which is always a good thing.
Isaiah even made a new friend! The administrator’s husband Kevin was very kind to take Isaiah and play with him as soon as Isaiah finished eating. The restaurant had this incredible play area for kids, and I’m not sure who had more fun-Isaiah or Kevin!
Kevin was also very kind in talking with me about what it’s like being Isaiah’s mom. He gave me a “spiritual check-up” so to speak, which was much needed and much appreciated. I love how God brings our brothers and sisters into our lives at just the right unexpected times.
