Andrew's salvation


On Sunday, 12-year old Andrew was saved! He has grown up in a Christian home, but after Pastor Bob's Sunday School lesson to the teens, Andrew asked if he could be saved. Praise the Lord, we have people saved in our church on a fairly consistent basis, but I chose to feature Andrew's salvation here on my blog because his family is very special to our church. They are one of the only families that we have in our church that is faithfully represented by every entity of the family... father, mother, and children. Also, Andrew's parents are very involved with serving.... his father Dima is our song leader and his mother Marina is our church pianist (and she is a very good pianist!) Marina has even given some piano lessons to our son Davey, but those lessons stopped once we moved out into the village. I would like to figure out a way to coincide our busy schedules once again, though, so that he can continue his lessons. But that is another subject...

Andrew has an eye problem that could one day leave him blind.... in one or both eyes. He has had numerous surgeries and procedures done on his eyes. Just as Fanny Crosby, the blind hymn writer was able to sing, "And I shall see Him face to face, and tell the story saved by grace...," we know that Andrew now has this hope of seeing His Saviour face to face.... and clearly.... one day in Heaven! Praise God for Andrew's salvation!


  1. Praise the Lord that he accepted Christ into his heart!!

  2. Praise the Lord! That is wonderful! Three of my family members have had the opportunity to lead people to Christ this week. What a blessing. You will be interested to know that my husband just returned from a trip to Africa. He was with a group of preachers and they had the opportunity of seeing 700 come to know Christ! Isn't that wonderful!
