All the Way to Siberia and Back

By Dee Dixon

What an awesome experience! What a great mission! What an extraordinary team!

I attend Central Church of God in Charlotte, which sends mission teams all over the world. When the opportunity to go to Siberia was announced, I responded to a “still, small voice” and signed up, not realizing the profound impact this journey would have on me spiritually. img_1441 img_1467 img_1503

A team of 13 set out for Siberia on Sept. 16, with a nine-hour flight to Munich, another four-hour ride to Moscow with a six-hour layover there, and finally another four-hour flight to Novokuznetsk, Siberia. (BTW, our team leaders, Serge and Elena Baygulow, are from this town, so we were in excellent hands.)

I know what you’re thinking………it must have been cold in Siberia.   Quite the contrary; it was unusually warm during our stay. Really, it was in the upper 70s and 80s most of our stay – just a light jacket needed in the early mornings. Not at all what I imagined.

In summary, we worshipped and shared our testimonies in spirit-filled churches, ministered to recovering addicts of alcohol and drugs and heard their struggles, visited nursing homes and an orphanage and fed and prayed with the homeless. We lived in Russian apartments/homes, which was quite an experience in itself. (May I be transparent? I longed for a hotel at first blush, but prayed and God adjusted my attitude, reminding me of the mission. I soon began calling the place where five of us ladies stayed “home.”) img_1500

We drove to another city in Siberia called Mundybash and then spent our final day in Moscow before returning home on Sept. 24. Though it turned cold and rainy, we were able to enjoy a boat ride along with a visit to Red Square, which was absolutely awesome. (Though hard, LOL, I managed to get just a little shopping done in Moscow, too. Yay! I purchased some boots, which I can probably find here at Ross, an authentic Russimg_1359ian hat, some small pieces of art. My personal goal is to bring back a piece of art from every country I visit.)

I was spiritually moved by the people in Russia. Chapter One, 1 verse nine of the book of James states: “Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.” It was so rewarding, uplifting and absolutely inspiring to witness such a powerful outflowing of faith in Jesus Christ among Russian believers in “humble circumstances.” I thank God for the opportunity to have been in the presence of royalty. This trip truly blessed my soul.img_1349

Sincere gratitude to all of you who supported me financially and with prayers.   Please enjoy some of the photos of this journey and email me if you want to know more.  img_1512

  212. of course like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth on the other
    hand I will certainly come again again.

  213. Howdy outstanding blog! Does running a blog like this
    require a large amount of work? I’ve no expertise in programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I simply had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

  214. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during
    lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait
    to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone
    .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb site!

  215. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely neatly written article.

    I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your helpful
    info. Thank you for the post. I will definitely comeback.
