Siberian Fajitas? For Real?
November 17, 2010

I've learned not to be surprised by anything we find as we travel on mission.  However, to find a restaurant named "Amigo's" in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk came very close to surprising us.  I still don't know how to say "fajitas" in Russian, but I know how to eat them in Russia, and they were very good.  This unexpected treat came after another successful Practically Speaking English event with our partner, Joe Wilson and a great team from Georgia and Texas.

God blessed us once again with encouraging testimony from our students, many of whom are now bound for Heaven.  Then, after a short, few days at home, we were refreshed by the work with the "MK's" in Germany. 

Won't you pray for us right now?  Will you consider how you can help us during 2011 by going, giving, sending and praying?

Thank you for 10 years and thanking Him in advance for the next 10.

The mixed team from Texas and Georgia found perfect weather in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk in a part of the city known as Akedem Goradot (my attempt at the English spelling of "academic town").  Not only was the weather wonderful, the people were open and friendly and ready to practice English.  More than 260 students registered for the week-long classes, which made this the largest Practically Speaking English event to date in that city.  We averaged about 240 each day and conducted three separate sessions of English classes.  Using the Baptist Seminary as our lodging and classroom facilities, we were able to stay rested and focused on our students.  Students of all ages participated, but most were university age and were enrolled in one of several universities in the area.  On the final day of classes, the student survey revealed 47 "yes's", 35 who want to know more about the Christian life and about 80 who want to continue in the weekly English classes and Bible study offered by our partners (Joe, Alvin, et al).

Joe took me along to the city of Krasnoyarsk to discuss future plans with some pastors there.  In January or February 2011, a new church will be launched in that city. The pastors of the mother church invited us to come next year for a Practically Speaking English event to reach some of the 1 million in that city.

In fact, we are already planning to return to Siberia in 2011 and conduct Practically Speaking English events in both Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk.  Watch our event schedule at www.jodykennedy.com/projects.html for the exact dates.

Our wonderful team from Texas and South Carolina spent the week caring for and teaching the children of some of the missionary families that are stationed in Europe (from England to Russia, Sweden to Italy).  Meanwhile mom & dad attended much needed conference sessions, worship, and cultural training.

Vacation Bible School and AMP'd Music Camp were provided to the children with a grand finale presented to the parents on the last evening.  We take for granted that we can see our kids participate in VBS and camps.  On the mission field, these activities are usually not available to the children.

In addition to child care, our team collected and carried over 400 pounds of "wish list" items to the missionary families.  Things we take for granted are not easy to find in some of the far away places where our missionaries live and work.  It was a great blessing to see the faces of our missionaries light up when we presented them with these little things from home.

Since 2004, we have provided the child care team for this annual event.  In 2011, we expect this event to be held in September.  It is not too early to begin preparations for joining us.  Get your passport, save your money and contact us right away.
