Welcome friends, I am so glad you are here. My name is Becky Bruce, and I serve Jesus as Director of Creative Care Mission.
I am passionate about prayer, creative arts, and authentic friendship, and I am so excited to introduce you to this extension of Love Russia Mission!
This ministry really started in 1999 when I went on my first short term mission trip to St. Petersburg with Fond du Lac Christian School. I spent two weeks in a kids summer camp falling in love with the people, the language, and the culture. The next year I asked my dad, Don Buege, to come along as a chaperone, and that trip began a very special partnership in ministry over the next decade which eventually led to Love Russia Mission here at Blazing Trees.
I always thought that I would end up in full time ministry, but as the years passed by, I found myself on a different path than the one I planned for myself. After graduating from Bethel University with a BA in Sociocultural Studies, I got married and had two amazing kiddos. Though I have been able to continue to minister in Russia through short term trips, my primary focus has been on my family during this season of my life.
Creative Care Mission was born out of a desire to serve in this season when going has not really been possible. It has become such an incredible blessing to serve the Lord in this new way. I have always been a ‘goer,’ so this mission really came as kind of a surprise to me. That’s our God though isn’t it?
I have become really passionate about mobilizing prayer for unreached people groups and educating our partners on the current state of Jesus’ Great Commission in Russia. I also love the arts, and the Lord has given me a vision for blessing our team with creative gifts and resources.
I continue to pray that the Lord will give me discernment when the time comes to return to Russia again, because I do believe that time is coming as well!
