Our last day with kids in Russia was at Orphanage #40 for visually and otherwise impaired children. We had a great time, followed by a relaxing day seeing the sights back in St. Petersburg! Find the latest pictures HERE. As we post this, we’re just a couple of hours from our flights home to Michigan.
We spent Thursday with the kids from Orphanage #14. Since we saw them last year, there was a fire that sent them to a different camp about 30 minutes from our “base.” We faced a few challenges, but God worked through our team to spend time with kids who don’t get visits very often. “I think we are the only team that comes to visit them,” says Paula Hayes from Orphan Outreach, “It’s important that we keep going back!”

Today we visited a camp outside of St. Petersburg with kids from all ages in Orphanages 46 and 2. Misha and his sister, Sasha, were a brother and sister we met last year. This year, they had news to share! Listen to THIS audio snapshot.
Our team thanks you for the continued prayers on our behalf! On our second day in Russia, we traveled by bus about 90 minutes outside of St. Petersburg to visit a summer camp for the kids from Orphanage #60. It was great to reconnect with some kids from last year, and to meet new ones! We felt God’s presence as we played games, did crafts and shared the Gospel through a skit set to music.
