Our special guest for Vision Night 2015, Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine, shares a few highlights about what the Lord has done in his life and ministry. We were blessed with a full-capacity crowd.
For more than half of my life (until age 30), I did not know Christ and was not interested in the Bible. The Lord forced me to read it by sending me up to the North Pole alone with nothing to read but the Bible. Reading it revealed to me both the Truth and what were the obstacles that kept me from accepting it earlier. Since then, I have been working on removing those obstacles for other people in my part of the world.
Media always works as a great tool for accelerating evangelism, church edification, and leadership training. For many regions, media is the only way to do it. Those areas are regions where Christian gatherings, and/or Christian books, are prohibited (like Central Asian countries), or where traveling is limited (like remote areas and regions under siege). This experience of using media made us perfectly prepared for the drastic changes in our part of the world.
The fighting has changed our country. Crimea is occupied, the East is under fire. Yet, we see a great change of mentality in the people. Ukraine is becoming a nation of free, responsible people who are able to recognize good from wrong and resist the oppression, even if a high price has to be paid. We are proud to say that our ministry made an impact on shaping the worldview of the nation through teaching the Church to take a strong stand in the Word of God and to be a prophetic voice to the nation and our leaders.
Our next Vision Night events are on March 24 in Indianapolis, IN; and on March 27 in Phoenix, AZ. Register at www.gnpi.org/visionnight.
