Hello Everybody!

 

This month we've seen some of the richest colors fall in St. Petersburg has to offer. This season in St. Petersburg is always a contradictory one--we fight against the rain and wind and soak up the days of brilliant sunshine, we complain about increasing cold and yet also long for the first snow. The good and the bad are all thrown in together, and every once in a while I just have to stop, take a picture, and remind myself to focus on the beauty.

This month I observed not only the seasons in nature, but also the seasons of life that happen in the church. Read my latest newsletter to see a small slice of all the action that is happening in the Ingrian Lutheran church. As always, thank you so much for your prayers!

Peace,
Alyssa
