HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Seven members of a Hasbrouck Heights church are heading out on two different missions trips.

The Leuci family, Len, Sharon, Dom, and Leo, along with John Occhiogrosso and his daughter Gianna, are heading to Russia to support a church-sponsored missionary in Tambov, Russia. They just received their final travel paperwork this past week.

The group left on Friday afternoon from Newark Airport. The trip will last 13 days, and has a four-hour layover in Switzerland on the way there.

Joey Occhiogrosso, John's son, will leave on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic on Sunday. According to his mother, Gina, he had served on the same trip last year, and jumped at the opportunity to return again. His trip will be one week.

Both missions groups are from Bible Baptist Church in Hasbrouck Heights.
