Since few foreign missionaries are being called to Russia, the Russians are stepping it up. Here, Tanya has come to the Mission Office to open her Mission Call. Daniel is the local Branch Mission Leader. Olyesa, in red, got her call a month ago. Over twice as many are serving as have in the past.
The two sisters will serve in Vladivostok and Moscow West after they go to the MTC in Provo for a month of training.
The visa problem takes a toll on all the missions because the USA missionaries are returning home, but none are being called. The visa trips themselves are often very time consuming.
If you're wondering what to focus on this Fast Sunday, we would welcome your faith and prayers in behalf of the Russian Missions.
Love to all.
Elder and Sister McEvoy
