Summer Camp in Lesozavodsk

children, sisters, and FOCUS volunteers at summer camp

Here is a picture from Russia of the summer camp that the sisters organize in the town of Lesozavodsk, Russia. Three of our sisters are in the picture. A team of 13 FOCUS students were there to lend their irreplaceable help. Forty children attended the event which lasted 5 days. It was a time for them to learn some new and useful things and to hear about God and His love for them. Thank you for praying and sacrificing for our mission.
