Forever in His Arms

The Mission Trip
After completing initial training, I will fly, along with a team of other teens from the Orlando International Airport, across 10 time zones spanning the Atlantic Ocean, Europe and the Caucus Mountains, to historic Ekaterinburg, Russia via Frankfurt, Germany. Once my team has landed, We will bus past traditional Russian dachas, gardens, wheat fields and birch forests to our destination in Krasnaya Niva. We will begin our evangelistic project which will include construction, music, drama, and puppets presentations. Our work project will be to continue the construction of the Teen Missions Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center. While there we will join with a Russian teen team and participate in soccer and volleyball scrimmages with local youth in neighboring towns, sharing the Gospel during “half-time” presentations and building friendships before and after games. A sightseeing trip to Ekaterinburg will include a visit to the Europe/Asia border and to an ornate Orthodox church built to commemorate the death of Nicholas II and his family, the last of Russia’s royalty.
