President Romney Reunion 03 Mar 2012
We are having a Moscow South Mission Reunion on March 30th at 6:30 pm at 97 Westview Dr. in Orem, UT for everyone who served under President Romney. I know that President and Sister Romney would love to see and catch up with each of you. The event will be low-key, casual, and hopefully it will give everyone a chance to catch up and reminisce. I will post information about this event on the different Moscow South Facebook pages, but I am very hopeful that we can get a really big crowd. Please forward this information to anyone who is not included in this email. 

RSVP to the attached google doc.

President Marchenko 18 Apr 2009
I was heading off to stake conference on Saturday and I was told that a recently called Area Authority from Russia was going to be there. It turns out that it is President Marchenko from the the filioski branch. He and his wife both spoke at my stake conference in Rigby ID. What a small world huh? Anyway the said that the branch and the membership in general is bigger than ever. It was a great time.

Travel Plans 13 Feb 2009
My wife wants to go to Russia. I don't want to go through one of those pre-planned packages because I want to visit some of the cities I was in. Any of you traveled back to your cities? How did you do it? Can I contact you with questions about it?

Translation Needed 12 Dec 2008
There is a family in our stake that just adopted two young girls from Ukraine. They only speak Russian and the sister missionaries here would like some help with them at church on Sundays. My wife and I both served in Moscow, but aren't overly confident in our skills anymore and are looking for some help. If anyone would like to help, please call me at 801-898-2302 ASAP. Thanks.

Phoning to Russia 06 Jun 2006
For those like me who are just realizing this - all the Russian city area codes have been changed. Until 2005, area codes began with the number "0."

Beginning in 2006, the first number of each city code has been changed to "4." The international codes (011-7) have NOT been changed.

So if, for example, you want to call Moscow you should dial 011-7-495 and then the telephone number.

Here are a few other city codes:
Borisoglebsk 47354
Podolsk 49765
Tula 4872
Voronezh 4732

Hope that helps someone out there!

Take care,
David Updike

Buy stuff there 19 Apr 2006
Hey, Elder Moss. Congrats on going to one way sweet mission. When you get there everything should be nice and toasty. As for advice on what to buy I would say that if you like v neck sweaters buy them now. I had problems finding them there. In Russia they have a lot of zip sweaters (which really doesn't work to well with the suit coat) or round collar high neck sweaters. Also as for the boots, you can get some way sweet ones in Russia for the right price. But, there's a chance that they'll fall apart on you half way through the winter. Or they will make you feel like you are a part of the escapades with how much they make you slide. In my opinion though the winter coat is a great buy in Russia. I bought a coat, scarf, gloves, and hat. They are really warm and you look more like a russian. Anyway, hope that helped. Good luck to you.

Nelya in Smolensk 04 Apr 2006
For those of you who served in Smolensk and knew Nelya I thought you may like to know that she passed away on the 16th of March. This lady was awesome and I am positive that a Nelya shaped hole will be missing from the little branch and the hearts of those who knew her.

Rent/ Stay with someone in Moscow 22 Jan 2005
Hi everyone,
My wife, baby and I will be living this summer (2005) in Moscow, Russia doing a clerkship in the Service Center with the church's attorney. I am looking for someone who lives close to the service center and would be willing to board us for two months (june 15 to Aug 15) and stay with my wife and baby while I am gone. We would of course financialy compensate them.

In the alternative, we are looking for an apartment to rent for 2 months.

Please let me know if you know of anyone trustworthy that might be willing to consider accomodating us.

Thanks, John Lore

Voice-to-Voice seeking volunteers 19 Jul 2004
Voice-to-Voice is a new project started by members of the church in Detroit Michigan and Pavlograd Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk)

Voice to Voice aims to offer those in the U.S., one-on-one conversation with native Russian speakers while at the same time providing stable employment for everyday Russians.

Currently, we are seeking volunteers to help us with testing of our system and training of our "sobesedniki". This event will take place on August 14th from 15-00 to 20-00 Kiev time (6am to 11am Utah time -- 8am to 1pm Eastern Time)

As a volunteer you will be talking to several of our new "sobesedniki" in Russian via voice chat software in order to help them become familiar with the software and basic conversation methodologies. This event will be a lot of fun and a great way to practice your Russian and become acquainted first-hand with this effort to help Russian speakers in the poorest areas of the former USSR to become self-reliant.

For more information contact David Shurtleff:
(734) 513-3497

Moscow/Utah Youth Olympic Games 28 Jan 2004
Just in case someone wanted to check this out, but did not receive the e-mail:

This Friday, nearly 300 athletes, performers, coaches and dignitaries will arrive from Moscow for the 2004 Moscow/Utah Youth Games, winter competitions. These games are an important part of our Olympic legacy. This is the first time Olympic cities have organized athletic competitions for youth, and competitions and cultural events will be held throughout our Olympic region for nine days. All events are open to the public and we invite you to come and enjoy them!

The Opening Ceremonies will be held this Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the new Olympic Cauldron Plaza at the Rice-Eccles Stadium. It will be an evening extravaganza of ceremony, music, dance and magnificent fireworks. The show will feature some of the best talent in Utah in an American legacy of song and dance, concluding with a special guest lighting the Olympic Cauldron. It is a bargain at just $10. Tickets are available at the Rice-Eccles Stadium ticket office, or by calling 581-8849.

The Closing Ceremonies will also be held at the Rice-Eccles Stadium on February 7th -- they will be equally spectacular. All of the athletic events are free, except the figure skating exhibition ice shows, which will cost $5. Please click on for further information and the schedule of events. You may also click here to download an informational brochure for the games.

Thank you for all your help to make the Moscow/Utah Youth Games a success!
