Mission Trips




Since 1994 TEAR founder and president, Leo Semenov has lead over 1,500 Americans from more than 50 churches and schools to his native homeland of Russia, with the purpose of spreading the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Russian people. TEAR construction teams serve the needs of Russian orphanages and churches by supplying manpower and materials to improve existing facilities.

Mission teams travel bearing much-needed medical supplies and professional care; while teaching teams conduct seminars to aid Christian growth of Russian believers and to encourage and train local pastors and their congregations. Vacation Bible Schools and musical events are conducted in orphanages, churches or among the community at large.
TEAR Mission Trips Include:
  • 10-day roundtrips to Russia
  • Airfaire, ground transporation, hotel & meals
  • Sunday worship at local church
  • Small-group dinner in Russian home
  • Interpreters
  • One day of sightseeing in Moscow
  • Tickets to one Moscow performance (circus or ballet)
  • Single-church or multi-church member teams
  • Fun, with a Kingdom purpose


2011 In Summary

Eighteen years before, Nadia had said, “I will go wherever you go.”  Little did she realize one day it would mean America.  We left everything in Moscow – not only our belongings, but also our parents and families, to follow God’s calling.  We knew that our  homeland needed the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ more than anything! Despite the fact that we couldn't speak a word of English, we knew we had to come to America to receive help for our people.
The Lord enabled the overcoming of many difficult circumstances.  TEAR was founded one year later.  The Lord had plans beyond any of our expectations.  For TEAR, Nadia and Leo, that meant becoming a bridge between America and Russia, between adults and children (the Russian orphans), between the saved and the lost.


Thank You Dr. Williams

Dr. Bill Williams and a host of other dentists in the Atlanta area played a crucial role in providing much needed dental care for our young visitors!  Without this care, many of these children would live in pain or worse, lose precious teeth.

Mission Trip in Reverse

The love, concern and acceptance shown to the children from a host family can change their outlook on life, and give them a new hope that can positively affect choices and decisions for the rest of their lives.

Fantasies to Faith

One of the many things that TEAR has done as a way to reach the orphans in Russia is to hold a Christmas Art contest for them.  Each year, between thirty and fifty thousand children from orphanages all across Russia participate.
