The number 750,000, depending on what context it is used in, can be either overwhelming or unimpressive. In this case, it is the number of children that face their early life cramped in orphanages throughout Russia. Through The Boaz Project, Taylor students are truly given the opportunity to “…visit orphans and widows in their afflictions” (James 1:27). The Russia trip serves to give students a new perspective on this difficult reality by allowing them to serve children through various outlets such as Vacation Bible School, and to build relationships that they will always remember.
