Within Russia there are seven missions, 21,709 church members, and 99 congregations. The Novosibirsk mission was reorganized last year to cover a larger geographical area (including most of Russian Siberia, Central Asia, and the entire nation of Kazakhstan). So vast is the Novosibirsk mission that you would have to take 42-hour train ride to get to Novosibirsk the city from certain areas still within the mission boundaries.
The church is currently working on creating a stake in the area within the next 2-3 years.
Beets, cucumbers, dinya (a kind of melon that is a hybrid of cantaloupe and honeydew melon), cabbage salad, bread, chicken, pasta, but no seedless grapes like you would find in America. There are also lots of ice cream vendors in Russia, one at practically every bus stop. Ice cream is very popular in Russia and includes a wide selection of flavors such as cheese.
Generally travel via public transportation, usually by bus.

Contrary to what you may think, the Novosibirsk mission is made up, almost exclusively, of very large cities with populations of about 1,000,000+. Novosibirsk is the third largest city in Russia with a population of nearly 1.5 million people. In addition to traditional contacting LDS Novosibirsk missionaries often set up an English Club where they meet regularly with those who wish to learn or improve upon their English language skills.
