The trip was rammed with things to do, including: Pastor meetings, 3 church services (got to do some bi-lingual worship, a real treat), their first ever Alpha, a discussion group on the doctrine of election, and many other things. Was great fun being part of Hope Church for a week and catching some of what's going on at this vibrant church.
We spent a lot of time with the Henson family who are simply fantastic. They're clearing doing some amazing work as they seek to help build Jesus's (bilingual) church in St Petersburg. I'm so glad we're supporting this wonderful family as a church.
I stayed with Phil & Julia Pike who looked after me over the week. It was always nice to be greeted with a warm welcome and an even warmer cup of tea when arriving back, so a big thank you to them as well.
I learnt loads, met with some brilliant people and got a glimpse of what life in St Petersburg is like... So all in all a fantastic trip!
