Ministry details
:

After arriving there will be a few days of preparations, orientation and getting to know the program that will be presented. Then follows days of traveling. You will visit villages, schools, nursery schools, and churches where the Vinnitsa team are involved in ministry. You will be able to fully be part of the Puppet theatre show – as a puppet master since the play is pre-recorded in Russian and you will have rehearsal time with the team. Over New year and during Ukrainian Christmas (7th of January) you will time off and join in festivities with the team and with the local Christians.

Participant profile

People from other nationalities have to apply for a visa. The visa must be obtained BEFORE leaving your home country. You will need a single entry visa for Ukraine. Ask at the consulate in your home country what is needed to obtain the visa. If you need an invitation letter, we can get this to you but please allow 2 months (By October 23) for this to be obtained and sent to you. We need full passport info, home address, church and church address info to get the invitation letter for you.
You will then need to hand the invitation letter, the application and any other required documents to the consulate to receive the visa. Visa costs are not included in the campaign and must be paid separately.

Notes
:

Even though there will be translators, please do not expect you own personal translator. Be prepared for frustration with language and to be creative in finding ways to communicate.
