I won't spend this entry writing--too much time has passed. Highlights: spent Christmas in CA with family and a quiet New Year here in Beaver Falls. Classes began today--still waiting to hear when my exact travel dates to Vladivostok will be. I confess that I'm struggling to continue waiting. I pray that I do leave on Jan 31--it's the time frame I was told.....Enjoy the pictures--I think the camera caught Will's joy of the season! I do have to share that he has been talking incessantly about Jesus dying on the cross--particularly for him. I'm humbled to be entrusted with parenting Will.
