Three yellow roses bundled and wrapped in ribbon where presented to each of us as we entered the Samara airport. We had been traveling a little over 18 hours since boarding the first of three flights in Cincinnati. Warm welcomes of hugs were given to us and it did not matter if we were old friends or first time visitors. We are treated as family…sisters and brothers in Christ. It is a warm and welcoming beginning to our time in the Volga River District.

We come from all across the West Ohio Conference. From Ripley to Maumee to Cincinnati and even Northern Kentucky. There are eight of us and we started the journey to the Volga District of Russia on Friday, July 12. Four of us are returning to see old friends and make new ones and four are going for the first time to be in fellowship with our sisters and brothers in Christ across the Volga River District. You are welcome to join us on our mission of Christian love here on WOC Mission Mosaic over the coming days.
