Thanks in advance

Moscow/Petersburg sites 16 Jul 2007
Hi there. Heading to Russia in August and wondered if anyone could tell me the "have to see" places in Moscow and Petersburg.

Also, what does a Taxi ride cost from Sheremeteva to Red Square. What does a taxi cost from say Saratov train station to city center.

Pot-Luck This Saturday! 17 Apr 2007
Hi All,

The final word on the Kosmynin get-together is that it will be held this Saturday, April 21st at 6:00 pm at Ed and Carol MacGlaughlin's meetinghouse in Farmington. Food for this particular event will be a pot-luck of sorts. Those that attend are asked to bring some kind of main dish or something else to share (i.e. salad, potato chips, dessert, drinks). There is no gastronomic theme (a testament to my under-developed planning skills I'm sure) so feel free to bring whatever tastes good. Additionally, there is no definite end-time for this little reunion (We have the building until 10:00 pm), but both the Kosmynins and the MacGlaughlins have asked that people come earlier rather than later. The address of the meetinghouse is:

Fairways Chapel 1533 N. 1075 W. Farmington

Also you can look it up on for more information:,9781,600-1-7-103349,00.html

See you soon!

Phone Cards Reply 11 Apr 2007
That site is alright, but here is an even better site that I use all the time:

It only costs about 1.5 per minute. Of course you always get hit with some extra fees, but really I have found anything that compares. Even that other site doesn't come close. Good luck.

Calling Russia 10 Apr 2007
Just wanted to let everyone know about a great calling card for Russia.

Its only about 3 cents/minute to call most cities in the mish. So, no excuses call your members!!

Kosmynin Pot-Luck? 04 Apr 2007
Just a quick note for all those still interested in seeing the Kosmynins (ether again or for the first time) while they are here in Utah: I am taking one last crack at organizing a pot-luck on their behalf (the responses that I have gotten have been only a few, indicating that ether people are not getting the emails, not checking this message board or just not interested). The potential dates and places are ether the evenings of Friday, the 20th of April in Provo, or Saturday the 21st in Farmington (courtesy of Ed and Carol MacGlaughlin). As I understand it the pair have been making the rounds more throughly than previously thought making such a gathering potentially moot. If you are interested please email me your preference of date and location.

place to stay in Saratov 27 Mar 2007
My name is Nathan Harmston, please see my profile for info about my mission. I would like to know if there are any Students of Saratov State University that I could stay with in Saratov during the 07-08 academic year. I have been accepted by the University of Missouri's Study Abroad Program to study Russian in Saratov. I would prefer to stay with a member or member family while there. So if any one is interested or has any connections please let me know. My e-mail is or

The Kosmynins Are Coming! 20 Feb 2007
The rumors are true! Evgenni and Tatyanna Kosmynin are coming to Utah! They will be here for a whole month over general conference in the Spring (from approximately March 27th – April 27th). More details will follow about their exact timetable, but sufficeth to say accommodation the bulk of their trip has already been arranged as well as pick up and drop off from the airport There are, as I understand it, still a few days unaccounted for and plenty of free time during both days and nights during the week and possibly during the weekend, so if you do have any interest in putting the pair up for a night or two, or want to hang out with them or want to be there at the airport when they arrive or leave, you may contact them for more info at If for whatever reason they are unresponsive I would be happy to try and coordinate something on your behalf with some of the other families in the area that may know their schedule a little better. My email is: I was also trying to gage interest in throwing a little missionary get-together in their behalf. The simplest thing would be to put something like a pot-luck together in and around the second or third week they are here (in other words the second or third week in April). Any ideas? Comments? Suggestions? Preferences? More details to follow soon....

Google Earth 11 Feb 2007
Why did it take me so long? Samara and Saratov shots are very crisp on Google Earth. It's fun to look at the streets I walked for months. Just a heads up to those who haven't used it yet.

Russia Trip 02 Feb 2007
My wife, son, and I are headed to Samara for a month in May. If anyone needs someone tracked down or a message delivered let me know. We will probably be in Saratov for at least a couple days also. - Simmons

request for information 02 Jan 2007
You may have heard the sad news that Elder Stephen Drake passed away in
Pleasant Grove on December 24th. His brother Jim has written to us to ask
for any mission memories we may have. Would those of you who knew Elder Drake please write to Jim with anything you'd like
to say about serving with him?
Thank you very much.
