In July 2010, my friend Valentina Galchenko invited me to the church. My husband had left me, and I had no children. I was alone. She said, “With God you will not be alone. You will have a new family in Christ.” I came to church and I joined Diane’s Bible class. I told her that I wanted to join the church, and it was in my new member interview with Diane that I surrendered my life to Christ, and now I am growing in faith.
My mama had died several weeks before and I was full of grief. But now I am not alone, because Jesus is with me. He fills me with His presence. I have joy and hope for the future. To know God’s grace is the biggest joy of life. I spend a lot of time reading the Bible and praying.
I do not have good health. I suffer with high blood pressure and heart and lung disorders. My pension is small, so I always look for the cheapest food to live. The food packet really helps me. I am so grateful to MMK and the physical and spiritual help I get through the church. Now I have joy in my life!
