Make a difference this summer in Russia, as you serve alongside Russian team members, using sports evangelism, missions training and open-air presentations. This is an exciting multi-purpose summer missions trip to the edge of Siberia, in the world’s largest country!
After completing Boot Camp, you will fly from the Orlando In- ternational Airport, across 10 time zones spanning the Atlantic Ocean, to Ekaterinburg, Russia via Frankfurt, Germany. You will bus past traditional Russian dachas, gardens, wheat fields and birch forests on your way to your destination in Krasnaya Niva.
Here, at the Russian Boot Camp, you help train national teens in work and evangelism skills such as construction, music, drama, puppets and balloons. After Commissioning, a joint Russian/North American team will travel to the Lake Baikal region, the deepest freshwater lake in the world. Here you will participate in soccer and volleyball scrimmages with local youth, sharing the Gospel during “half-time” presentations and building friendships before and after games.
After your project, you board the Trans–Siberian Railroad to Ulan Ude where you transfer to the Trans–Mongolian Railroad to Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia and on to Beijing, China. Here you will visit the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall.
