This is just a quick journal to inform you all that I, along with the entire Study Abroad group, am headed to Russia tomorrow morning. We will be there until Sunday, March 16th. So there will not be another journal post from until then. I do ask that you please keep our entire group in your prayers during this time of travel. No one has a complete understanding of conflicts between Russia and Ukraine, and Russia and the USA. We are being told to proceed with caution. There is not currently much concern for our safety, but we have received a few warnings. We are being told to keep our eyes open for any political demonstrations and leave the area if we notice anything of the sorts. Other than this, our leaders will continue to make sure our current travel plans are safe, and redirect us should a threat arise. All prayers are appreciated!
Спасиьо! (pronounced spa-see-boh – “Thank you” in Russian)
