Our Russian Village – Called Sunrise to Freedom…

Believe it or not, this was taken with a camera phone. My LG phone is a lousy phone but a great camera… 🙂

The lake in front is almost dry and since it is going on Winter it will stay dry. They will put no new fish in until next Spring. As you see the village is on a mound and is the high spot for many kilometers. Hence we can see forever on a clear day. It seems that I can not get enough shots of this view of the village and I am trying to get a shot from all seasons. I have Spring, Summer and Fall now. Winter will be hard because the snow gets deep…

I want to have our Volga converted to a 4 wheel drive. The process is not that hard because almost all parts are interchangeable amongst the Gaz family of vehicles. Then we will take a trek to the village in the Winter…

I can see why the monks originally built a church and a monastery there. It truly is Gods place and when I am not there I dream of living there the rest of my life. Working the land to raise food, having several goats, maybe a cow and chickens for food and milk…

I was floored a few days ago when I found out that one of the homes in the village was sold for 30,000 rubles ($1000 dollars). It made me think back to 50 acres I bought in Missouri once, years and years ago at $81 dollars an acre. $4000 dollars for some of the most beautiful land in the world…

We have to get back down to the village before the snow flies and finish the fence. This weekend coming up we will get all of our supplies in order to make the trip in a few weeks. Time is flying

God has blessed me and I am not afraid to say that. Sveta is the most wonderful loving woman I have ever met and I hope to survive many years to enjoy my life with her in Russia…

Have a nice day!
