The picture shows a Soviet Monument to World War II heros in Panfilov Park in Almaty, Kazakhstan. It honors soldiers of the Almaty infantry unit who died fighting the Nazis outside of Moscow. Here, people come to sit, rest, and remember. Let’s pray that the peace of the Lord dwells among this memorial park as it encourages reflection and rest. May it be a common place for people to encounter Jesus. May it also serve as a reminder for believers in Kazakhstan to remember what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us all as he “causes us to remember his wonderful works” (Psalm 111:5).
