After soul searching we have come to the conclusion that the monastery at TRV is on the right track…

Father Pavel and his Tiny Russian Village monastery project is a good thing. Svetochka and I support what is happening. At first we were conflicted, yet after all these years and seeing what is being done, the only way that TRV will survive is if the monastery rebuilds itself to actually that, a monastery again…

A visit to the monastery of St. Nicholas – Посещение святой обители святителя Николая

Before the village, before the school for the deaf, blind and dumb, before the monastery was destroyed in Soviet Times….there was a very special Female Monastery by itself upon our hill/mountain. Founded here because there was a natural water source and a holy water source nearby…

Gods Place: A Blessed Water Source…

If I was a rich man?

I would sink the millions of dollars that I don’t have and drive the rebuilding of the monastery to its former glory. I would even push to return to the female monastery status. Yet, that will not happen. Yet, we will give what we can and hope that more and more gets done…

Our Village Monastery in Russia – The St. Nicholas Monastery…

There are very few places in the world that God is present. Man has destroyed so much and so raped the world in so many places. Man has lost so much that has been freely allowed to him and with all that man has lost his spiritual way…

The Tiny Russian Village is a place where God still speaks/acts/motivates freely and all we have to do is listen/feel…

This is even after the almost total destruction of this monastery by some very bad individuals at the past times…

I can honestly say that the elder spirits are at peace now at the old village and God still has his hand on guiding the place. Humans are not always good at listening. They even found the cemetery finally….they had whom I called a Preacher Boy before Bishop Mathew and then Father Pavel and Preacher Boy brought set backs upon TRV that took many years to straighten out…

The importance of TRV to me is paramount for many reasons. Sometimes the reasons are not clear to me and life pushes me away from the goal. Yet, I see what is and what can be at the Tiny Russian Village with its very unique monastery…
