T H E N .......JULY 2009
We first 'met' the STREKOZOVA family last July 2009 shortly after we arrived here in Helsinki and began serving our Temple Mission!! What sweet young ladies. They found a Young Women Logo pendant in the Distribution Center. We just 'had' to buy a little gift for them......and they were soooo excited and very, very surprised! We hoped they would be able to come back in a year for another temple visit. You see, they live on the other side of Russia and it is not easy for them to get here........
This is (L) Marina and (R) Margo with mother, Lidia, in the middle.
And one more big HUG from 'my' girls!!

A little GROUP hug!!
