Mission trip outside Russia

OM International | Russia

This year, a team from Russia participated in an OM Moldova summer mission trip. The first one was a day camp in the city of Vulcănești, located in Gagauzia region. Team members also participated in a camp for boys in another part of Moldova.

People from Russia helped the local team in the first camp and were leaders of kids’ groups in the second camp. Although Moldova is a Romanian-speaking country, Russian is also used. The team had an opportunity to work with kids who only speak Russian, and it was a big privilege for the participants to be helpful by using their native language.

It was the first time for most of the team members to go on a mission trip in another country.

Ekaterina* shared, “We were told that we should be ready for difficult conditions: poverty, very hot weather. But as soon as we came, we realised that the living conditions were very good. Our trip was really wonderful.”

This mission trip was a special one for all team members. One of them, Evgeniy*, said: “The Lord humbled me by working with these kids. God showed me my heart and what should be changed towards children and other people”.

The Russian team liked this time of serving the Lord and the mission trip to Moldova will always be remarkable for them.
