In 1999 Andy Frecka went to the city of Perm, near the Ural Mountains in Russia with YWAM (Youth With A Mission). He spent nine years there where he got married, had four kids and tells the whole story in his book “Winter Road: Journey of a Russian Mission”.
The book is a very capturing read and at only 280 pages it isn’t a very long read. Andy experienced a lot of different adventures during his time in Russia, including buying a car, boiling snow for food, working with a local group of prisoners, and more.
The book has been reviewed four times over at Amazon, all a full five stars. You can purchase it through Amazon here.
