God has uniquely combined Sara’s passion for missions, her commitment to camping ministry, and her love for the cultures and people of the former USSR by opening doors for her to serve for 10 years in camp ministry, English evangelism, and young women’s discipleship in Ukraine.

Now that the churches she worked with in Ukraine are ready to stand on their own, God has called Sara to work with the Buryat people in Ulan-Ude near Lake Baikal, Siberia. The Buryat, a unique culture of Mongolian decent, practice Buddhism and Shamanism. There are no Buryat churches, and the Bible has not been translated into the Buryat language.

Sara is part of a team that diligently works to reach the Buryat by learning their culture and building relationships, and through outreach ministries, such as English clubs where the Bible is used to help the Buryat learn English.

Pray that the Lord will provide Sara with His wisdom, grace, energy, and discipline to do everything she can to reach the Buryat people with His Gospel.
