“…once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”
~Proverbs 24:12

Running on Fumes

Well, we made it! We got in to St. Petersburg--but barely! If we would have traveled through Frankfurt, as we usually do, chances are our flight would have been severely delayed (70% of flights out of Frankfurt were either canceled or greatly delayed today). And if we would have come in through Dusseldorf yesterday as we did today, we would have been stranded, as all flights were canceled out of that airport just yesterday. Praise God we made it!

Our driver let us swing by Bennett's baby home for about 30 minutes. Of course it was well worth it! His face lit up as soon as he saw us. He was all giggles and non-stop play for the full 30 minutes. He even started saying more words than we have heard him say before. We are not sure if they are Russian words or just sounds, but either way it was beautiful to our ears.

As I, Derek, finish writing Kat's blog because I think that she just passed out in her Borsht, (Traditional Russian Soup made with beets), we thank you for continuing to follow our journey. In less than 48 hours, the children will be with us forever.
