Call for Russian translators in SLC 24 Jan 2005
We are looking for return missionaries from Russia who would be willing to volunteer their time as Russian translators. They will help translate for a group of 20 Russian children from orphanages in Eastern Russia who are coming to Salt Lake City soon to be hosted by various families in Utah and Salt Lake counties.

Adoption Adventure Network seeks to express God's care toward orphans by coordinating 2-3-week "American Culture Camps" for underprivileged Russian children. Most of the children are able to be adopted and many will meet families who will want to share their love and lives as permanent members. Our program will provide the beginning of that adventure!

The Adventure of Hope (AOH) Program for Russian orphans provides a critical opportunity for children searching for homes and love to find permanent adoptive families. Through participating in our program, children spend approximately three weeks with a host family in the United States, learning about living in a family and receiving love and attention in a family setting. Many things we take for granted are new to them! During the day, they attend a day camp near their hosts home that is provided by the AOH staff and volunteers so they can swim, play games, go on field trips and have a typical American vacation experience. We want them to have some fun! The day camp program also provides a unique opportunity for host families to share the experience with other families who are considering adoption, forming a community of "fellow travelers" on the adoption adventure. Some host families will know from the very beginning that they are interested in hosting but not adopting. That's okay. We try to involve as many families from the area as possible, hosting or participating as volunteers to increase the chances of successful matches. We also invite families from out of town to travel to visit our programs and spend a few days getting to know the children if there is no program in their local area. Most importantly, these children have the opportunity for contact with families who are looking to adopt. It is our goal to have all of them matched up with a forever family by the end of the program!

Since most host families are not Russian-speaking, translation support is a critical element of a successful AOH experience. We are looking to provide a Russian-speaking volunteer translator to accompany the child and family for the the child's first day in the home and first day of camp. We also need volunteer translators for our unique "Dial-a-Translator" list of Russian-speaking volunteers who are willing to take phone calls to assist host families in communicating with their young guest.

Please contact Karen Cannon at We will notify those interested as soon as we know the arrival date for the children.

Russian Music 15 Nov 2004
In response to Briant's message about music, and his mentioning that Zemfira's albums are available for download over the Internet, I just wanted to say that it's this way for most Russian artists. In fact, it's this way for a good number of European artists. Just Google any ol' group you want, look at their Web site, and get downloads of songs and such.
If you want some folk music and the ever-popular Soviet national anthem, try <>.
If you'd rather pay for your MP3 files, go to <>, which is a site operated out of Russia where you can download just about any song you want for about 1 cent per megabyte. It's legal, too. Google on it, and you'll find a bunch of reviews and articles. I'll add my recommendation to the list. Lots of good Russian stuff is available.
So, try Varvara, PPK, Via-Gra, Reflex, and Sveta. :-)

Voice-to-Voice seeking volunteers 19 Jul 2004
Voice-to-Voice is a new project started by members of the church in Detroit Michigan and Pavlograd Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk)

Voice to Voice aims to offer those in the U.S., one-on-one conversation with native Russian speakers while at the same time providing stable employment for everyday Russians.

Currently, we are seeking volunteers to help us with testing of our system and training of our "sobesedniki". This event will take place on August 14th from 15-00 to 20-00 Kiev time (6am to 11am Utah time -- 8am to 1pm Eastern Time)

As a volunteer you will be talking to several of our new "sobesedniki" in Russian via voice chat software in order to help them become familiar with the software and basic conversation methodologies. This event will be a lot of fun and a great way to practice your Russian and become acquainted first-hand with this effort to help Russian speakers in the poorest areas of the former USSR to become self-reliant.

For more information contact David Shurtleff:
(734) 513-3497
