This may be the last post from Moscow. We are limited in our internet connection.
Statistics to date:
- Time change from Terre Haute: 8 hours (ahead)
- Speaking/teaching: 9 times
- Leading worship: 5 times
- Coffeehouse concert: 1
- Trips on Metro: 15
- Feeling like a big dork in a foreign land: still counting.
We woke to some heavy snow today. After another great breakfast from Kathy, we walked to HCA for the final chapel sessions.
To start the morning off I led worship and spoke to a chapel full of all their elementary students. We explored the idea of compassion. During worship I led "All in All." I was told that the kids loved the song. That was an understatement. These guys lit the room up. They sang full on with appropriate passion. I had to step away. I started to choke up. Awesome stuff.
After the elementary chapel time, I spoke and led worship for a combined chapel of Middle and High School students. We wrapped up the week well as we discussed the Cause of Christ.
Tonight is a coffeehouse time where Patrick and I will join some other musicians (including his son James). We are looking forward to a great time.
