Loeppky Siberia Tour 2013

Mennonite Villages in Siberia Tour 2013

New information is now available for this Tour of Mennonite villages in Siberia planned for 2013. Here is a NEW poster you may print for your information, and post to make others aware too.

In July 2011, Len Loeppky led a tour to the Mennonite villages in Siberia, plus a visit to the city of Moscow. The tour group numbered 25, with group members from Brazil, Florida, Ontario, Manitoba, and BC.

Their reception from the Mennonites in the villages in Siberia was overwhelming. Len's group had prepared some songs plus he had a minister in one group who spoke excellent "plaut Deutsch" so they were able to contribute in the spiritual realm also.

Len's clients were extremely pleased with the entire tour and have encouraged him to organize another tour to this area for the spring of 2013.

A tour of this nature does not appeal to everyone but there are people across the continent who would be interested in travelling with a tour of this nature. Consequently Loeppky is now announcing this opportunity.

Here are two documents to download and print; (1) Siberia Tour Poster,
and (2) Loeppky Siberia 2013 brochure/info
