Prayer and Praise
I want you to meet Sergei. 26 years old, he was a heroin addict for many years but came to faith and has been clean for almost four years. Rod's been working with him for four years, studying the Bible and doing outreach together. Sergei's now studying at university to be a nurse and hopes to go on to med school. He lives with us on weekends and they talk almost everyday. Rod sends him Scriptures to read and meditate on. Pray that Sergei will remain close to the Lord and serve Him by sharing Christ with other students.
One of our first residents, Sveta, is doing remarkably well. She's been clean and walking with the Lord for almost three years. Her six-year old son was returned to her and has been with her now for six months. I don't think the transition could have gone any better. She's a wonderful mother and Nikita's a very happy, well-adjusted little boy who adores his mama.
More about us in our next letter. But for now, suffice it to say we're happy in our work and are so thankful for your friendship and investment in what we're doing.
