Vitalii Rusnak pastors the Patrautii de Jos Church in Storojinet, Ukraine. In recent months he has assisted Jon Gireada in Transcarpatia, Ukraine, while maintainiong his shepherding responsibilites in Storojinet. This month, Vitalli shares:
The Lord gave us a good opportunity in Ileana’s home. She buried her husband two years ago. Now, two years after his death, her pain and sadness are overwhelming. She needed finacial help, but she also needed to hear about her soul’s need. Seeing that she was interested, I preached the Gospel to her. She listened to me and asked me to pray for her, as she wasn’t able to see any hope for her life. She was full of pessimism and bitterness. We prayed for her and then her face brightened. I gave her a calendar full of Bible verses and a New Testament. I hope that by reading it God will reveal Himself to Ileana and save her impoverished soul.
