My phone rang and I heard a female demanding voice. The woman wanted to know what the Christian faith was about. I felt her tension and I was sure she was squeezing her phone. Her name is Polina (or Pauline).
This is how our acquaintance began. I did not want to continue these long phone calls and therefore suggested we meet her with our family in a McDonalds that’s close to us. We agreed with Ksenia that after a short conversation together, I’ll leave with our children for the playground, while she stays with Pauline to talk about faith.
Polina texted me after the meeting that she agreed to meet us to once again prove that “Christians are not very smart and strange people", but she was shocked and her views were completely changed after meeting us. About a month later she became a believer and joined a local church (she is a student who comes to St. Petersburg briefly to take exams but lives in a different city). She married her ex-boyfriend , who also trusted Christ.
Pauline’s story as well as some other stories of spiritual multiplication, which God allows us the privilege to participate in, show us that we are in the right place. Her story on one hand is unique, but on the other hand – it is just a normal way God works in a human heart.
It is a privilege that God uses us for His work. We are well aware that this is a joint work of God, you and us. Without your help and support, we would not be able to participate in such a work.
This is our 10th year on staff with "New Life" and through all these years God has been faithful and led us and looked after us and not only allowed us to serve Him, but also to see fruits in the ministry.
Thank you for your 10-year contribution into our ministry. We are in this ministry together!
We have some current needs both in life and ministry.
1. We are going to the States in May 2014 to visit friends and partners and to find new partners– we need about 4,500USD to cover all of the expanses.
2. Also we need more support to rent a flat – extra $500 every month – total for a year is 6,000USD.
