Photos from Russia – An Early Glimpse

Hot off the press!! Here are some initial photos from the group in Russia, courtesy of our very dear friend and M127 supporter, Sveta. Enjoy a first glimpse into some of the early activities this week! Note: You can click on any thumbnail to get a larger view of the photo.

BTW – This ministry would not exist without Sveta – and not just because she sends us great photos from each trip. She is the heart and soul of the ministry and a tireless advocate for the orphans and staff in Slobodskoy. Мы любим тебя.
