Dear Friends, we have developed a new e-newsletter called “Transform Siberia Tea House News”. This newsletter will go out on a regular basis to inform people of what we are up to and how they can pray for us. If you are not receiving our newsletter, but would like to, please sign up here or drop us a line at email@example.com
For the record, Irkutsk was located on what was known as the Tea Road, a road stretching from Moscow to Kalgan, China (approximately 125 miles West of Beijing). Many a tea-merchant had fabulous digs in Irkutsk prior to the Reds taking over. Incidentally, the Russian word for tea is chai, so when you order a chai tea at your local coffee shop, you are asking for tea-tea! We thought being on the Tea Road, and lovers of tea, as all good Russians and Asians in Russia are, this would be a good name for our newsletter.
