I have been a believer since I was 14. God did a lot for me and He continues to do good in my life. Because of my love for Him I would do anything God would ask me to. As time went on, I served Him; and then one day pastor Dmitry came to me and asked me, "Would you be a pastor?" When I heard these words I felt a stirring within me and I realized that God was calling me! After asking God and receiving an answer I agreed. But in order to be a pastor one must know a lot of things and be able to do a lot of things. After six months I was offered to study at the Vision University. Without thinking I said yes because I was totally sure that it was the place where God wanted to see me. During the training I learned some new things and some things I already knew, but I can say that this knowledge will be useful to me in the present and in the future. For example, I reviewed the topic of mentoring, removed unnecessary things from my ministry and added a lot of new material thanks to the fact that we have studied these topics! Much more can be said and written but I can say one thing – if God wants me to change my way of thinking, to receive new knowledge and to give it to others, I can say with confidence that my studiesare very useful to me!
