Russia

Missions Work in Russia

Russia, an intriguing and fascinating, yet mysterious country.  For the past 12 years, and again this year,  First Baptist Church Pensacola has sent a team to Krasnoe Selo a small town southwest of St. Petersburg, where we have been privileged to work with the Evangelical Church Krasnoe Selo-Baptist, teaching American Baseball to children ages 6-17 and conducting a Vacation Bible School and craft camp for children 4-9 years old.  We also have a small group for young ladies 15-18 years of age.  We have between 200 and 300 children participate so we need a large team.

 

Even though Russia has recently passed laws to restrict the presentation of the Gospel, we are fortunate to have a good relationship with this church and the local government so that when we comply with the law we can share the gospel openly with the children and their parents/guardians.  Everyone who goes develops a personal relationship with a number of the children, members of the church in Krasnoe Selo and the translators that work with us.  As we return from Russia we will spend a couple of days in Budapest, Hungary enjoying the city.  Cost is $2,900.  Must have a passport with at least 6 months of eligibility after return date.
