Irkutsk Extension Program Instructor Airfare
This year the Samara Center for Biblical Training has opened a new extension program in Irkutsk, Siberia. The need is great, and the door for ministry is wide open, but the arduous 2500 miles (4000 km) between Irkutsk and Samara are a significant obstacle to overcome. Rather than require students to travel four days by train to get to Samara, your gift will allow us to cover the airfare to fly instructors to them in Irkutsk.

  • Need: $4,500 total for airfare
