Russia

A couple years ago my mom and I went to Russia for a missions trip. I was about 8 years old when I went there. This building was sooo big that when I was there I thought it was a castle for royal people. I just thought it was weird that there was a camel in Russia.

This was an orphan from one of the orphanages we went to. They said that he was starved, caged, and then finally abandoned at some home's front steps. He went without food or water for a long time. Dennis is his name. He was four years old when I went there. And he was the size of an infant who was about 6 months old.

I had a lot of fun in Russia. I'm grateful for what I have here in America and I hope that all the orphans get adopted by good christian families!!
