Congratulations to our Pinterest Winner!

Billy Graham Crusade in Moscow, RussiaVic guessed correctly on the Pinterest photo – the picture was snapped in 1991 when I was in Moscow, Russia to help prepare for Billy Graham’s Crusade (which was held in 1992 in the stadium pictured here). It was such a privilege to speak in Russian churches and pave the way for Mr. Graham’s evangelistic outreach. But why the babushka? The Iron Curtain had only recently come down and many Christians still held fast to old traditions (although, wearing a head covering in church is a very biblical idea :-). Thanks to all who participated in the contest; a $25 Amazon gift card is in the mail today to Vic!
