First Vision discussion 17 Jan 2009
It's Cestra Rozsa, now Berrett, here. I've been asked to tell the First Vision in Russian for an English gospel doctrine class. I threw away my Russian discussions when I moved a year ago. Does anyone that served around 1993-1994 still have a copy of their discussions? If you do could you send me an e-mail at jen@berrett.org. Thanks.

Year book for 1995 25 Jan 2008
I can't find my copy of the 1995 and early 1996 year book. It has many of the companions and friends I served with. I don't need an original but it would be fun to put the faces and names together again. If you can help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks

Elder Daniel Newell 20 Nov 2007
Just wanted to send you a quick heads up that Elder Daniel Newell (can't find him on here, but he might be somewhere) was killed in a motorcycle accident this past May. He was one of my companions and several others on here as well. His wife also served in our mission (Mary) and he is survived by six kids. There is a website in his honor http://danielnewell.com/

Mission Reunion? 18 Sep 2006
Hi ya'll,

Just curious if there will be a reunion for either Pres. Kelly or Pres. Young this coming conference. We might be coming up around that time and I'm not sure if that only happens in April or what. Those of us traveling from out of state need a bit of a notice, so if there is one scheduled, let's hear it. Otherwise, maybe we'll be there in April, if there's one then.

Painting 04 Aug 2006
If you're speaking about the Tretiakov museum in Moscow there are several paintings of Christ. The most famous if probably the "Appearance of Christ to the people" by Ivanov. It is a very large painting and covers and entire wall. It does not, however, depict the resurrected Christ, but Christ prior to his baptism as John the Baptist is also depicted.

Museum 04 Aug 2006
The museum is called the Tretyakov Gallery (Tret'yakovskaya Gallereya) in Moscow, and that painting is there (Yavlenie Khrista Narodu/The Appearance of Christ to the People)- it takes up a whole room.

paintings and meeting places 04 Aug 2006
i served from 1998-2000 and just got back from a 3 week trip to Ukraine and Russia. As for the painting of Christ appearing to the slavs...i've seen the one elder matson posted before, but when i was there just this past month i think I may have saw another one that looked like the ressurected Christ appearing to the slavic people (if i recall, He was showing the wounds He suffered on the cross) . This one was much older than 200 years however, but unfortunately i went to way too many museums and i can't remember which museum it was in or anything else about the painting. does anyone recall ever seeing anything like the painting i'm describing in St. Pete (maybe Hermitage???).

also, when in moscow i showed up to church where i attended last year, but no one else was there. any particular reason the moscow branches have been moving around so much???

Ivanov's Painting 03 Aug 2006
Hi,

The painting in question (Appearance of Christ to the people) is found in the Tretyakov Gallery in downtown Moscow and is a must see in person if you can swing it. Here is the website for some more info. on the painter Ivanov (bottom of the page) http://www.tretyakovgallery.ru/english/150.shtml.

Picture 03 Aug 2006
The picture hangs in the Tretyakov Gallery on metro Tretyakovskaya. The book I purchased has quite an extensive history in it of this particular artist and painting. I'd be happy to type it up if you need the info. Definitely one of the most impressive paintings in the gallery.

An excerpt from a website says "At about 1833 Ivanov conceived a plan to paint a large picture The Appearance of Christ to the People (1837-1857). This picture truly became the work of his life, he worked on it for twenty years. Over 100 sketches, numerous detail drawings, and large-scale designs, most of them in oil, preceded the monumental composition. Its size is 540 x 750 cm (18' x 25'). In the foreground of the picture there is a number of male figures, some already undressed, awaiting to be baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. While John the Baptist, in his garb of animal skin under a long mantle, a crosier in his left hand, turns and raises his arms dramatically towards the lone figure of Christ, who appears on a rocky rise in the middle ground, behind him a broad plain and distant mountains"

Answer 03 Aug 2006
Scott Matson answered with this:

I can't remember the name of the Museum in Moscow, but when I visited it while on my mission, I purchased a copy of this piece. If it is the one I am thinking, it is called A.A Ivanov's Appearance of the Christ to the People, and here is a link to view it.

http://www.helsinki.fi/hum/slav/studies/huttunen/mosaiikki/en/own-alien/extras/ivano001_opt_tif.jpg

You can copy or cut and paste that link to view it.

I hope this helps.

Some assistance? 03 Aug 2006
Dear Sirs,

When my son Everett Ulbricht was in Moscow on his LDS mission in 1996 and 1997, President Chappel, his mission president, gave a talk about a particular painting that hung in a Moscow museum. This painting was said to depict the risen Savior appearing to the Slavic people. And, this
painting may be more than 200 years old.

I would like to know more about this painting. Can someone at the mission tell me the name of the painting, the painter, the museum that is showing the painting, its age, etc? Is there a photograph of the painting that is available on the internet? Any information that you can send would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You and Kind Regards,

Bill Ulbricht

Mission Boundries 31 Jul 2006
Hey, I just got an e-mail from Sister Beus (President Beus' wife, he is the mission president of the RMM) and here are the good on the boundary changes. This is a direct copy and paste job, so there is some humor in it for all of you who know Sis. Beus!
The bottom line of it all is this: Pres. N. after 2 years of chewing on it like a dog on a bone has decided the reason Moscow is so slow to grow is that our branches are TOO BIG. We need more branches and they need to be smaller and more dynamic. He also wants Moscow to be flooded with misisonaries; Moscow is where we need to concentrate our efforts as this will be the center of Russia forever. THis will be the temple site and there are 15 million people here for pete's sake. So after months of meetings and a lOT of prez' time and elders' time making detailed maps of boundaries and church population, including inactives and actives, the missions have been realigned. The south mission (now clled the WEst MIssion) came in and took Tagansky, Kakhovsky, and Arbatsky branches. They also got Tver (gulp) and Lotoshino which has been closed to full time missionaries. we have only had one baptism in that tiny ilttle branch in the 2 years we've been here and we just can't afford to keep a set of fulltime elders there. We kept Rechnoi, Z grad, INternational and Sokolniki branches and we also inherited the entire country of Kazakhstan where we have one thriving little branch in Almaty (that's where we were last week and we had SUCH a good time) and plans to begin another in Astina, the capital, in a few months. This makes our mission an expansion mission, and we have had our long suffering assistants ELder Palmer and Siddoway playing real estate agents for months. We have homes taht double as pomescheniya in Lobnya, Mitishi, with 2 more on track in Ramenskoye and somewhere else. We are beginning little branches in each of these outer cities where our members now have to travel 2 hours one way into moscow for church. Thing is, this kind of represents a turn around in policy since it was just 3 years ago that the then area presidency combined all these branches into the huge branches you knew on your misison, lost a lot of members in the process, but it was done in the interest of being ready to create a stake. Well, the statistics are in and we could be a stake, but Pres N. says it is folly to make one stake in Moscow; we need at least 2 stakes to begin with. So instead of having one stake now, we are hoping for 2 stakes in 5 years or less. So now we have two districts in Moscow and the other mission has half the city. The south mission kept Belarus. But we got Kazakhstan. We swapped missionaries in Tver and Kazakhstan; they got ours and we got theirs. Visas t Kazakhstan cost about 600.00 each and we coudln't justify the expenditure of that kind of money. IN addition, despite assurances that this would NOT happen, it did happen; we had to give them 4 missionaries in order for them to take over and do the job in the south. Sigh. That' was the pits. But we are excited about our little branches on the east side of Moscow and we are still hoping, EVENTUALLY, to split the branch in Nizhni; the signing of the building has dragged on, literally, for more than half a year and the service center still has am onth of renovation to do once we sign. It is very frustrating. So, it's like we have a whole new mission. We feel quite protective of our little branches, the legal d epartment is holding its breath with the renting of these large private homes that will house the missionaries and provide meeting houses for these new branches. Anything out of the ordinary causes the legal department ot hyperventilate and Russian law makers to get their dander up. We are just tyring to fly under the radar

Gatorball in DC 21 Jul 2006
This news has come to me very late, so I'm sorry that I'm just trying to post this the day before, but...

Saturday, July 22nd a bunch of Russia/Ukraine RMs and others will be getting together to play Gatorball at Georgetown University inside the District.

Dan Degener of the Ukraine Kiev mission is the organizer of the event and will be gathering people at the Rosslyn Metro station at 8:30 am. And walk over to the field from there. If you have questions about playing you can call him at 801-309-6644.

If you plan to get there on your own we're looking to start playing at the field on top of (above? I don't really know G-Town very well) Yates Field House between 9 and 9:15 am.

If you're around DC and want to play then come on down. Hope to see you there!

New counselor in Europe East Area presidency 10 Jun 2006
New Area presidencies, effective August 15, 2006, were announced in the "Church News" of June 10, 2006. President Dennis B.

Mailing packages to Russia 06 Feb 2006
The following information regarding mailing packages to Russia came from Sister Pulsipher, mother of Sister Pulsipher (who will be completing her mission in February 2006).

1. Sister Pulsipher has sent lots of packages to her daughter, and they have all arrived.
2. There is no rhyme or reason to the amount of time a package takes to get there--it's anywhere between two weeks and three months.
3. Christmas of 2004, Sister Pulsipher sent her daughter a big Christmas package--and it didn't get there in time for Christmas. That was very traumatic.
4. Smaller packages seem to arrive more quickly than larger packages. Christmas of 2005, Sister Pulsipher sent her daughter Christmas presents in three separate, smaller packages, and they got there in time for Christmas. (In the U.S., packages weighing less than 4 lbs. have a different customs slip than packages weighing more than 4 lbs.)
5. This is the address to which packages should be addressed:

Elder/Sister Firstname Surname
Russia Moscow Mission
Moskva #101000
Galvpochtampt a/ai 257
Moscow
Russia

Do NOT send packages to Vrubelya Street #1; Metro Sokol; 125080 Moscow; Russia. This address was included in the mission-call papers my niece received, but it’s an out-of-date address. If the package is sent there, it is forwarded to a “service center”, and the missionary has to pick it up in person.

Hope this helps.

Info for newly called missionaries (9/11/05) 11 Sep 2005
I am Jo Ellen Ashworth, and I am using the account of my niece, Sister Kristy Ashworth, who enters the MTC on September 28, 2005.

I have some information about the mission that I would be happy to mail you. If you are interested, you can e-mail me at: jo_ellen@xmission.com

1. The photo and bio of President and Sister Beus (pronounced Bee-you-s) that appeared in the LDS Church News on March 20, 2004. President Beus’s term of service is July 1, 2004, to June 30, 2007. Following is the bio:

Glenn Wayne Beus, 53; Russia Moscow Mission; Othello 3rd Ward, Othello Washington Stake; bishop; former stake president, stake executive secretary, high councilor, Elders Quorum president, and missionary in the Philippines Mission. Teacher and farmer. Born in Ogden, Utah, to Evan Hugh and Alta Lucille Mansfield Beus. Married Kathleen Joanne Kuttler, nine children. A gospel doctrine teacher, she is a former ward Relief Society and Primary president, counselor in a ward Relief Society and Primary presidency and Primary teacher. Born in Bethesda, Md., to Kenneth Latimer and Joanne Stratford Hyde Kuttler.

2. Mailing addresses:

MTC
Elder/Sister __________
Mailbox # ______; Russia Moscow ___/___ (month and day of departure)
Missionary Training Center
2005 North 900 East
Provo, Utah 84604-1793
Telephone: (801) 422-2602

You can call the MTC the Friday before you go enter to find out what your mailbox number and estimated departure date are.

Pouch Mail (the Russia Moscow Mission has pouch mail)
Elder/Sister
Russia Moscow Mission
Post Office Box 30150
Salt Lake City, Utah 84130-1050

The “pouch” is only for letters–no photographs, currency, personal checks, stamps, or merchandise of any kind. Envelopes containing items other than letters will be returned to sender. (Be sure to include your return address on the envelope.)

The “regular” mailing address (which I assume is a post office box)
Elder/Sister ____________
Russia Moscow Mission
Moskva #101000
Galvpochtampt a/ai 257
Moscow
Russia

The Russia Moscow Mission office street address (which I imagine you would only use if you were sending something via courier, e.g., FedEx)
Elder/Sister _________
Russia Moscow Mission
Vrubelya Street #1
Metro Sokol
125080 Moscow
Russia

3. Telephone number for the Russia Moscow Mission office (from the U.S.)
011-7-095-363-2574
(If you call, and you can’t get the call to go through, try eliminating the “0" in “095".)

4. Europe East Area presidency, of which the Russia Moscow Mission is a part, as of August 15, 2005:

Dennis B. Neuenschwander, President
Wayne S. Peterson, First Counselor
Paul B. Pieper, Second Counselor

I have photos and bios of these three men.

5. A map of the Europe East Area (found in the Church Almanac 2005)

6. A brief article on the history of the Church in Russia found in the Church Almanac 2005).

7. A map of the mission. (If the map you received in your mission packet shows Belarus in the mission, you received an outdated map. Belarus has not been in the mission for some time.)

8. A chart comparing weather between Salt Lake City, Utah, and Moscow, Russia. Highest recorded: SLC - 105 degrees F.; Moscow - 89 degrees F. Lowest recorded: SLC - -20 degrees F.; Moscow - -25 degrees F. Rainfall: SLC - 16 inches annually; Moscow - 25 inches annually.

Other information:

There are approximately 60 missionaries (about a dozen of which Russians, Moldavans, Bulgarians, or Ukrainians), of which about a dozen are sister missionaries.

Approximately half of the missionaries in the mission are assigned to Moscow.
Cities in the mission with missionaries other than Moscow are: Zelenograd, Tver, Yaroslavl, and Nizhniy Novgorod–all relatively close to Moscow.
When the missionaries arrive, they are usually met by the mission president and the assistant to the president. They are taken to the mission home, where they are fed and where they spend the night. The next day they are taken to the Mission Office (via Red Square) for orientation.
There are no stakes in Russia at the present time, only districts and branches.
Missionaries get some references from members; teach on street corners; contact on buses, trolleys, trains, and subway, and in parks.
The mission averages between two and 15 baptisms a month.
Preparation Day is Wednesday.
For their four weekly service hours, the missionaries usually work in soup kitchens, orphanages, dacha work, puppet shows, whatever they can find.
Currently, the closest temple to members is the Swedish Temple.
Missionaries usually live in an apartment by themselves.
As far as eating goes, missionaries fix their own breakfasts; eat lunch at home, buy something to eat when they’re out and about, occasionally eat meal with members. Foods that missionaries commonly eat that are unusual for Americans are: sharma, borsh, and gretchka.
As their primary means of transportation, missionaries, walk or take buses, trolleys, trains, or subway. No bikes! No cars!
To write home, missionaries can use pouch mail. (They do not need to affix U.S. stamps.)
Missionaries can e-mail–one hour once week at Internet cafes.
It’s okay to send packages–they usually get through–expensive to send though.
Missionaries are allowed to listen to cassette tape or CD recordings of the Tabernacle Choir or inspiring classical music.
President and Sister Beus have two of their sons with them–ages 15 and 16.
Regarding gear needed to cope with the Russian winters for a sister missionary, Sister Beus wrote:
“heavy coats; long johns; hats; mufflers; warm gloves; dress boots–you need to be able to walk–low heels, practicality a must. All of these are extremely important. It’s very cold and dark for a long time in winter.”
The daily schedule is: 6:30am - up; 10:30am - out; 9pm or 9:30pm - 9pm if you don’t have an appointment, 9:30pm if you do.
Moscow is 900 miles north and 8,000 miles east and 10 hours ahead of Salt Lake City

Mission Reunion 22 Mar 2005
I'm not in charge of it I'm just posting it in behalf of Sister Sorensen. Any questions should be directed to her (marigold_9@hotmail.com). Have a great time.

okay everybody. sorry to keep you all in suspense for so long. thanks so much to everyone that got back to me. Here's the tentative plans. We're gonna have the reunion on Friday, April 1st, at 7:00PM in the Pioneer Chapel in provo, 900 W. 100 N. (take the center street exit, turn left at the light on 900 w. It's on the left). i don't know how long it will go- as long as people stay. i wish i had some fundage for this event, but i don't. so if anyone has any ideas about food, let me know. anyway- other things. For people that are interested, we were gonna do a session at the provo temple on Friday afternoon. We're meeting in the chapel at 4, to go through the 4:20 session. Also, Conference is on Saturday. if there's anyone that actually lives in the provo/orem utah area that would maybe want to have people over to watch conference, that would be cool. The reason being, i've had several people ask if between the morning and afternoon sessions if we can have a game of gatorball. sounds like a good plan to me. SO- temple sesision friday afternoon, reunion friday night, conference and gatorball on saturday. i'm gonna get the reunion posted on the deseret news website. if anyone knows how to post it on the mission website, that would be cool (i forgot my password). And one final plea-- this isn't gonna work unless everyone knows about it. SO- i need you to call people or forward this to everyone that you know from the mission so that everyone knows and we can have a great turnout. Sorry this is so long! let me know if you have any questions!

How we can help Russia 07 Apr 2003
April 1, 2003

This spring, the BYU International Center for Law and Religion Studies is
hosting a group of 35-40 Russian delegates at a conference on religious
freedom sponsored by the Library of Congress. As part of the conference
experience, the Center is looking for families with Russian ties or
interests to host the delegates during their stay in Utah. The delegates
will mostly be younger (age 25-40) leaders from governments, academia, and
non-governmental organizations that deal with religion. These are key
players in forming religious policy in Russia. We have found that the
home stay is a crucial part of shaping their views of America and Utah.
Not all the delegates will speak English, however, we have generally been
able to make sure that there is at least one fluent English speaker in
each home that does not have a Russian-speaking member. The tentative
dates for this year’s conference are Friday, June 27 through Wednesday,
July 2, 2003. Because of planning logistics, we desire that the hosts
live in the Salt Lake Valley; however, we may be able to include those in
the outlying areas if there is such interest.

The conference will kick off with the host families meeting their
delegate(s) at the airport on Friday evening and taking them to their
home. The host families are asked to provide the delegates staying in
their home with breakfast each day and to transport them each morning and
evening to a designated meeting place in downtown Salt Lake City.

The delegates will be quite busy during their stay, however, there are two
special occasions for the delegates to spend time with the families. On
Sunday, the delegates will attend the CBS broadcast of “Music and the
Spoken Word” and will then be given the afternoon and evening to spend
with their host family. The host families will also be invited to attend
the concluding dinner held at Deer Valley the evening of Tuesday, July 1.

If your family is interested in participating in this unique experience by
hosting one or more of these Russian delegates, please contact the BYU
International Center for Law and Religion Studies at (801) 422-5354 or by
email to mantzk@lawgate.byu.edu. In past years, this has proven to be a
remarkably rewarding experience for the Russians and the families that
hosted them.

Sincerely,

W. Cole Durham, Jr.
