We dream about reaching teenagers in the most dark part of Siberia-Tuva. At this age they face various challenges and have many questions about God and the Bible. Hiking camp in the mountains is a place of learning about God's heart and truth. We will seek Jesus through outdoor activities, Bible reading, prayers, worship, friendship and fireplace.
Participants should have a desire to reach teenagers with the Gospel and be willing to build relationships.
The hiking is on the first category of difficulty.
Physically, participants should be in good health and be able to withstand physical strain (injuries, weak ancles, etc.) and be able to handle those challenges. You should be comfortable sleeping in a tent, carrying backpack of 10-15 kg, missing showers and being out in nature.
