Update on Anastasija:
We are currently filling out the 17 page application to host. We'll be mailing it tomorrow!
A friend sent me a message this morning with the meaning of Anastasija:
From the Greek Ανάσταση Anástasi̱ meaning "resurrection."
"breaker of the chains"
Wow. That is God's little nudge of encouragement for the day.
Talk about a purpose in this adventure: raising the dead, breaking the chains.
That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
