SAGU hosts first-hand 'Eurasia Experience'Waxahachie, Texas — October 12, 2012 — Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) will host the Eurasia Experience on Wednesday, November 8 at 9:30 a.m and 7 p.m. The Eurasia Experience is a cross-cultural, multi-sensory journey that includes the sights, smells and sounds of Eurasian life.

The event allows participants to step into the shoes of a missionary, blending as best they can into a foreign culture from halfway around the world. Walk into a bustling city scene, hear and feel the commotion of a crowded bazaar and interact with people who have never had a chance to hear the message of Jesus.

At the Eurasia Experience, participants will hear real missionaries' stories from Eurasia’s 44 countries and territories. Many of these accounts cannot be broadcast because of restrictive situations. 

Spanning two continents, the Eurasia region includes the people groups and countries of the former Soviet Union, the Indian subcontinent and its neighboring islands, the Middle East, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. Countries within Eurasia include Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Latvia, Russia, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

SAGU's Intercultural Studies Director Chad Germany shares that the Eurasia Experience is the most powerful missions presentation he has ever seen. "It brings you face-to-face with the realities of life on the mission field, the challenge of other religions, and the urgency of taking the gospel to those who have never heard," says Germany. "It is life changing, and everyone needs to see it."
