2018 don buege

Privyet! My name is Don Buege, and I am Director of our Love Russia mission.

I have led over 80 mission trips to Russia over the last 25 years of ministry, and I help families and churches pray for Russian peoples and learn how to develop redemptive friendships with Russians all over the world!

Love Russia Prayer Team

We are praying for 1,000 people to pray once a week for the nation of Russia and all Russian peoples. We send out a “How To Pray” message by email every Monday. To sign up, please send an email to >

Love Russia Online

May Russian families are in need of online friendships. We use online messaging apps to connect with Russians and set up times online to meet, fellowship, and pray together.

Love Russia Trips

Over the years, we have developed trust friendships and long-term discipleship teams in multiple cities and states across Russia’s vast landscape. For more information on how to join one of these trips, please reach out >

Of Russia’s 96 people groups, there are 94 that are unreached; 40 of those are unengaged. Russia is only .7% evangelical Christian. The workers are few! Harvest workers are needed to help find persons of peace and indigenous leaders.

There is only one church for every 28,000 Russian people; 150,000 new churches are needed.

The vast majority of Slavic Russian people are non-religious or atheistic. The Slavic people make up 79% of Russia’s population.

Russian pastors and leaders suffer from discouragement as existing churches are in decline.

Russian laws enacted in July of 2016 have severely restricted religious liberty, making it illegal to be evangelistic. However, this persecution is bringing about an awakening of the church, and a resolve to glorify God by making disciples.

It is very difficult to mobilize North Americans willing to work with Russian partners to reach the country with the Gospel. Pray for open hearts and faithful workers.
