  Russian Federation 
Description
The world's largest country, the Russian Federation extends halfway around the globe! Surrounded by the Arctic and Pacific Oceans on two sides, it also faces the Barents, East Siberian, Okhotsk, Japan, Black, and Caspian Seas—as well as a short outlet to the Gulf of Finland. In this vast land, Seventh-day Adventist membership has increased 900 percent during the past 14 years. However, only three out of ten congregations have a place to worship. The Adventist dental clinic in Moscow and the three Adventist secondary schools provide opportunities for public and personal evangelism. The unions in Russia pay serious attention to various kinds of youth ministry; Pathfinder and Adventurer Clubs have been organized in several places. There are full-time evangelists in each conference.
