Overview

Siberia is a land renowned for its great vastness (one third bigger than the United States) and long winters. It’s also a land where people (36 million) desperately need Jesus. We are looking for volunteers who can reveal Jesus in words and action. This project involves health professionals consulting with patients during the day and in the evening introducing them to Jesus. This is going to be an absolutely phenomenal journey where few foreigners go.
