“Today we got to bring orphans to the beach. We first participated in an act of volunteer community service with Change30 staff and volunteers, cleaning up trash along the path to the beach through the forest. This act is significant because community volunteer service is unheard of in Russia. Americans volunteering community service in Russia is may be a first and was covered in local news as a great example for Russians to serve there community also.
We then arrived at the Baltic Sea with the orphans and had swimming, games, hair spray paint and fellowship with the children and staff that came with us.”
