On June 27th, on the shore of Lake Baikal, a region of the small sea — camp “Chaika,” a meeting was held between the participants of the international youth camp “Baikal 2020” and the ministers of the religious organizations in Irkutsk Oblast.
The meeting began with the religious ministers speaking briefly about their communities, after which they answered numerous, varied questions from the young people. The discussion continued more than an hour and a half, and then the youth had the opportunity of speaking with the ministers individually.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria was represented at the meeting by pastor Albert Mazurenko.
