Beautiful day!

Well it is another beautiful day in москва! The weather is lovely. Last week it was 98.7!!Can you believe. Wow all I wanted was a pool and some AC.

God has been so good to me! I just thought I would remind you of His kindness. I love how He takes the time to not only take care of my needs but make me happy. He knows just how to do it too!

Let me know if you are not on my email list and would like to be added!

Humbled, Dana

Feeling the Love!

I'm here!! It is so wonderful. I have been showered with blessing every moment upon my arrival. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to watch the Lord as He is faithful in always taking care of me. Not only has He provided for all of my need but has gone above and beyond with the hospitality I have been shown. As I am beginning to move in and seeing MES today, it is feeling more like home. I cannot wait to fully begin my journey. I can't lie, I am feeling pretty lucky! My life is just wonderful. I am so thankful that I followed to Lord's calling and came here. I would have been missing out on so much. Soon we should have internet in our apt and I can upload some pics. If not I will just head down to McDonalds! Free Wi Fi!

Thank you so much for you comments and prayers, they are so encouraging!

-My health, not to get to exhausted and get sick while getting over jet lag.
-My fear that I will be a bad teacher. I know it sounds crazy but I just hope they can understand me and I can show them the Love of Christ.
-To get all settled in before school begins!

I love you all!

Sovereignt:y...I love knowing at the end of the day that the Lord is sovereign. Of course it is good that He is good, loving, merciful, full of grace, and so much more. But as I am preparing to leave for Russia in a few days, I cannot express to you how comforting it is to know that the Lord is sovereign!

A few scriptures that I read today and just love...

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes...

Romans 10:14-15 How thenwill they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how wil they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unles they are sent? Just as it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!


Everyday- Not to get to completeing overwhelmed as I am preparing to leave in a few days.
Spiritually- That I will continue to learn what it is to surrender to the Lord everyday and how to live that.
Goals- To make it to Russia and begin making friends, learning the language, and serve the Lord.
