Adventure awaits you on this missions trip to the world’s largest country, Russia! After Boot Camp you will head to the Orlando International Airport where you will fly to JFK International Airport in New York. From New York you fly across the Atlantic Ocean, the United Kingdom, Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea before arriving in Moscow, the capital of Russia. From there you will travel to Ekaterinburg, home of the last Czar of Russia. Your journey, from the European side of Russia to the Asian side, will take you through vast mountains and beautiful birch forests.
After the hot days of Boot Camp, the cool weather of Russia will feel amazing and you will experience twenty hours of daylight.
Your summer mission trip will be spent ministering to Russian youth as you help them see God’s love and the hope found in Him. You may do sports in the local village (using soccer or volleyball) or go into town to do open-air evangelism. You will be there as the Russian national Boot Camp is happening. Training them to serve the Lord in their own country is one of the greatest ways you can impact these teens for Christ. Housing will be in dorms and bathing facilities are available.
On the way home you will spend time at the Europe/Asia Border, where you can be on two continents at once! You will then fly to Moscow for an overnight stay, where you may be able to see Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral. Shopping for the perfect souvenir such as Russian nesting dolls (matryoshka), Russian fur hats, handmade birch boxes and much more, will be one of the highlights of your trip.
