God at work in Molochansk.
My dear friends, I am excited to share with you, about wonderful experience wehad today. This Sunday 8 people were baptized, 3 of them, young people and letme introduce them. Nastya – few days ago we were notsure, that she will have a baptism, Nastya took adiscipleship course before the baptism, and at the lastmoment her parents forbid her to have it. It is not surprising;many people still have“Orthodox” background, thinking that our church is not true. When Nastya sharedit with us, we began to pray more intensively for the right solution. We did notwant Nastya to disobey her parents. And answer arrived immediately. Mother of another girl, who applied for the baptism, visited Nasty’s parents, and insisted tovisit pastor. Nastyas mother, talked to pastor Jacob, and to make this story short, Nastya mother agreed for the baptism. It is even hard to explain the joy, andshining face of her after the baptism. We praise God and rejoice for the newmembers of our family.Vika, - you may remember thisface from my previous newsletters.When Vika repented, her mother immediately forbid her to attendall our church activities. A school psychologist had manyconversations trying to convinceher, that she chooses not a rightway in her life. But Vika wasstrong, I remember, many time her in tears, when she did not have understandingaround her parents and old friends. But situation changed completely recently,Vikas mother now attend church, and began to read a Bible. We rejoice with Vika,for her step of commitment. By the way, it was Vikas mother, who insisted Nastays mother to talk to pastor.
