Donations and thank you, again and again…

Coffee-iconI was in a quandary! I had no idea how I was going to get the wood, much less the money for the wood, to build a shower house and a propane housing outside. Thus, I have been patient and whiling away coins for such a purpose. Then along came a few donations and solved the issue. The donations were for nothing in particular, as they had no directions on how they were to be used. Problem is solved and I have the Orthodox Church to help also. They have a huge pile of wood that is perfect for my use and they are going to let me take the wood. All I will do is donate some money to the church donation line for Father Pavel in charge of the monastery and life will be good…

In Russia small donations go a long ways to having fun. In this case, fun is building things…

Therefore, I want to thank the people who have sent donations the last few weeks. Several are specific for food for the winter and the last two are for general purpose. Those general purpose will buy wood. We get many dollar donations and some bigger. I want you to realize that the dollars add up to big money…

indexMy grandma always said something like this, “Pick up that coin on the ground! Never pass it by, for a fool most likely threw it down and one day he will need it! We can use it now! They add up Ky Ky!”

I try as often as I can to pick up every coin I can. Sometimes even in the Tiny Russian Village, I come home with several rubles in coins. The people that drive up to see the monastery will drop coins on the road as they walk, stop and or pull things out of their pockets. They never pick up what they drop, too lazy or too rich I guess. I even see people drop coins and tell them about it. They shrug their shoulders and walk on. Who am I to complain? I just pick them up…

Thus, it all adds up and I appreciate every dollar (or ruble coin in my case,) that gets donated…

Thanks again!

PS: By 9 a.m. I had all the wood moved to the village home and will actually start building the floor today. Took four trips with the car to get it all. Thanks everyone and thanks to the church for letting me get the wood cheap…
