We’re getting ready to purchase tickets to Belarus for our Christmas trip this December. If you’re considering joining us, please contact Anatoly Kushnar about travel dates. Please pray for us as we ready our Christmas program and raise funds to purchase presents for several thousand children!
What two words can you use to describe a mission trip? Stress and blessings! Begomel, Orsha, Ryacno, Bogyshevsk, Rechetsa, Dyatlova, Druya… the distance between these locations is several hundred miles. Hundreds of children.
