Dear Friends, In previous years I have typically been in Russia in January but this year I am travelling now before Pentecost to be with the ministry Hosanna which you also share in support of, many of you and all are friends and share in this ministry in prayer. I will be leaving tomorrow and arriving Thursday. There will be planning for the summer camp already under way and over the weekend I will participate in a Biblical conference reading a paper on Eden. Friends from First Presbyterian in Bellevue Washington will be meeting with us also then and in the early part of the following week. There will be community Bible study and prayer before Pentecost. When I return I will report on all activities...now recently a new kitchen and dining room set has been put in at the retreat center I understand...and of course I will hope to bring photographs. I ask your prayer for this trip and for our community as for your continued support of this ministry we share in which I am yours, +Seraphim +Seraphim Joseph Sigrist Donations for HOSANNA to The Patristic Society c.o 320 South Broadway, Unit P-7 Tarrytown New York 10591 (all correspondence to me: ssigrist@xxxxxxxxx, or sigrist@xxxxxxxx ) OR TO PAYPAL --CLICK ON "DONATE" BUTTON AT http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=hosanna AND FOLLOW THE SIMPLE DIRECTIONS TO MAKE CREDIT CARD OR BANK ACCOUNT DONATION.
