Maiya the Youth Leader
There are a few people out there that just ooze an aura of fun - Maiya is one of those.
Everything she does has color and vibrancy.
And she loves youth!
This weekend I got to hang out with her a bit in her home away from home of St. Pete.
Over a salad and some tea we challenged each other on the issues of life, and discussed the psychoness of Russian drivers! Turns out that those in St. Pete are just as crazy as those in Moscow! Maiya just recently went through the mental frustrations of buying a Russian used car, getting technical documents, insurance and baptism by fire from the Road Police. But that is all a report for another day.
We had a great time and it was particularly rewarding to realize that she is going out and doing. She studied with our youth training course Perspektiva, and now is training others. And leading youth clubs! And supporting teenagers! And in general leading the life of a disciple.
