Yuri came in contact with Slavic at the local train stop. Because of drinking problems, he was homeless and looking for work and a place to stay. Yuri invited the man to work and stay with them on one condition - no drinking. Except for a short period of time, Slavic has kept that agreement.
He has been involved in a charismatic group and believes himself to be saved because of different "experiences" he's had and also because he was baptized in the charismatic church. He has testified that before meeting Yuri and our church, he disliked his life and had contemplated suicide. We praise the Lord that God saved his physical body from death, but we pray that God will also save his soul. He is reaching the end of the salvation Bible Lessons (only 3 left) and our prayer is that he will see, it is not some experience or even baptism which saves us but only the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
