A short term mission team from MPPC will be going to a ministry center in Ryazan Russia located about 3.5 hours south east of Moscow.  The ministry center is operated by Children’s Hopechest.  HopeChest provides over 1,000 vulnerable children with protective services through our Ministry Centers, Family Centers, Independent Living Center Programs, and Young Mothers Programs. Girls and boys in these programs are not only safe, but loved and cared for by their dedicated staff.

The team will be meeting with graduates of the orphanage system.  We will team up with a local pastor to help teach the orphan graduates’ life skills, play sports/games, enjoy arts/crafts, share testimonies, and spend quality time with them.  One day we will see kids from the local orphanage in Rybnoe for some winter sports.

This will be a very exciting opportunity for the team to connect with graduates of the orphanage system who need to know that God loves them.  It will also be a great blessing to see the Rybnoe orphanage kids and reconnect with those of them we know.  We are honored about the opportunities to form new friendships with the orphan graduates and the kids from Rybnoe!

Please enjoy our blog and pictures as we update them throughout the trip.

In Christ,

John, Jeff, Jason, Ivan, Karina, and Nadia
