Testimony| April 2021| Playground
“Last year I heard about the fact that in the center of our city at the Playground, there are various free clubs for children and teenagers. I was very interested and decided to give it a try. I decided to take a guitar lesson since I had wanted to learn to play this instrument for a long time.
The idea of opening these clubs is very attractive because during the lessons, we can talk about different topics. One of the main topics is the life of Jesus Christ. Every lesson begins with prayer and a study of God's Word. First of all, I realized that prayer is real power. For example, I prayed for my father, who was on a job in Russia. It happened that in our country, unemployment is high and many men go abroad to earn money. On the one hand, it is good that the father has the opportunity to earn money and send us support for the family. But on the other hand, we all really wanted the family to live together.
I prayed for my father's return, and a miracle happened. My father returned home and is now working as a construction worker in Kyrgyzstan. I also prayed that God would see to it that our family would move into an apartment since it is hard to live in a house without the basic living conditions. And God took care of it. Now we all moved into a beautiful apartment together.
All of my family members are Orthodox and only go to church on holidays, but they don't stop me from going to church every Sunday. I really wanted to have my own Bible to read and study. Recently I was given a Bible and now I read it all the time”.
