did not sleep well last night so I allowed myself to come toward the end of Matins, knowing that Father Alexey and the readers would do well without me. We also had a large influx of Georgians who went to the old church immediately after the Liturgy to read an Akathist and prayers in Georgian. They are certainly looking forward to the visit of Father Thomas and Bishop Sabba of the Georgian Orthodox Church who should be arriving at the end of next week. With the aid of a walker, Vladika Lazar walked from the cottage to the main building for the Agape meal and he also gave a Meleti. An hour or so before sunset, the sun appeared and shone brilliantly, with the green grass radiating health and energy.
