Yuri & Doug

It grieves me to report that my dear friend and longtime translator Yuri died this evening on his way to church in Minsk. He leaves his wife Elena and his college-student son Vadim. He also leaves a huge hole in our lives, where his passion, his humor, his brilliant talent for language, and his enormous love for God made such a wonderful impact in the world. Rest in peace, beautiful friend.
