An amazing story of how the Lord provided and protected this family “literally” for 40 years in the Russian wilderness. Does the story sound familiar? Two words remind me: “The Exodus”
Even more in the most disparate of times; especially when our FAITH is being tested God never abandons us. It is us does the abandoning! This family’s willingness to survive social communism and freedom of religion for the ONE TRUE God- should be a shining example for us both as a Christian found nation and Believers in Christ Jesus!!! Amen and Amen
