Three Changed Lives

On Sunday three more brothers graduated from the first course of rehab. Sergei and Sergei are center and right and Sasha is on the left. The two Sergei's were drug addicts for over ten years and Sasha was an alcoholic. Karen and I have been privileged to be a part of the team that taught them during their course of rehabilitation. We have great hopes for these new believers and their future.

The rehab work here continues to grow. Every week we see new people enter the program and we also see amazing changes in lives as young men and women come to faith and begin to walk the road of discipleship. We, at times, also see the difficulties these young people face as they fight to break free from their addictions. Not everyone makes it and some continue to struggle despite their victory in rehab. If you read this, please pray for our brothers and sisters here. Every week on TV we see dead addicts lying in the street, killed by an overdose or by suicide. The battle is real and people's lives and destinies are at stake.
