Russell has been appointed through the Mississippi Baptist Student Union and the International Mission Board as a 2014 Mississippi BSU Summer Student missionary to Zimbabwe.

Russell said her trip is the chance “for the Lord to work through her and her teammates to further His kingdom.”

“Not only that, but it is the opportunity for the Lord to grow me in my own spiritual walk, to build faith and trust in him above all else,” Russell said. “It is also the sweet opportunity to love on some children who have nothing else in this world.”
