Mom In Russia

My Mom recently spent 2 weeks touring, and helping, in Russia as part of a church expedition, Volunteers In Missions, aka the VIM.

Although parts of Russia no doubt have modern conveniences, such as cellular phone networks, Internet Cafes, and private homes with Internet access, the VIM Policy was that no member of the VIM Team would carry any electronic communications devices, such as cell phones or computers. All communications (except for one) were by the team as a unit.
