In Artyom, Primorsky Krai, Russia, another community service project was held by the missionary department of the church, together with ADRA FVUTS, timed to coincide with the day of influence for the Far Eastern Union of Seventh-day Adventists.

Invitations for free haircuts for men, women, and children were posted. The church invited a volunteer, Zhanna Bibchenko, a generalist hairdresser, who agreed to come and participate in the event.

On this day, 12 people were able to get their hair cut for free. Each guest received a gift bag with the book of the year, The Great Controversy, the newspaper The Hidden Treasure, and a booklet for the church.

During the action, while waiting for their turn, the guests were offered hot tea and cookies, and those wishing to ask questions on spiritual topics were able to get answers to them. Participants were glad to use their gifts to serve the Lord and society!
