Mira signed her work, “Thank you for being so good friend. Happy Birthday. From Russia with Love.” While it did not come from Russia, I knew what she meant. It came from her…a Russian…and it came from her heart. It was a birthday present for me and she was delighted to share her talents; a hand-drawn owl using only a simple black pen. As we say in Mission, we often get more out of our work than the people we minister too. This drawing and her words are just another example. спасибо (Thank you) Mira!
