His health seems to be holding up well and of course the Russian devotees and Mission are so inspiring. So far I have seen full page articles in six Russian magazines, and yesterday television people interviewed His Divine Grace at the restaurant. All the devotees are staying in the same retreat centre as past years, about a half hour outside of Moscow, in the woods and next to a lovely lake. It is a very sweet arrangement, like one huge family reunion.... -- Jamuna Priya Devi Dasi"
