Malye Koplany, Leningrad Oblast
The subbotnik* was a success!
*subbotnik = volunteer effort to clean and fix, usually on a Saturday.
Many responded and did many things!
The volunteers cleared the space used as the Church of Ingria book storage from trash and waste,
moved part of the books to a separate space (the New Storage),
replaced the weathered PC glazing on the belltower,
cleared the fire exit almost fully,
fixed the lights in the storage room and did many many other things.
The day included going on an excursion and Deacon Raskatov ringing the church bells twice!
We plan to continue next week if the Lord wills and we live.
