Two New Graduates

Last Sunday two brothers graduated from the first course of rehabilitation. Anton (on the left) is a young man, 25 years old, and was an addict for over 5 years. He entered the Rustai rehab during the winter and Karen and I would see him every time that we taught. Anton treats me as if I am his father. He is a great young man. He has already entered the second course of rehabilitation and is serving as a mentor to young men who are entering the system for the first time.

Sergei is a husband and father. He entered the Lesnaya Polyana rehab in February. We taught him every week during his course of rehabilitation. He was addicted to drugs and was a criminal. His family life was a mess and he really needed help. This Sunday it was wonderful to see him reunited with his wife and teenage daughter. They have been attending church during the time Sergei was in rehab. Hopefully this will continue and they will serve the Lord together as a family through the coming years.

Thank you for the support and prayers that allow us to minister to these young men. Faith in Christ is changing lives in dramatic ways.
