Natalya Shvets
(Light of Life Church, Poltava)

My name is Natalya Shvets. I am 36 years old. I work at a clothing factory.

I became a believer in 2003. I have been a member of the Light of Life Church in Poltava for 12 years.

My primary ministry is working with new converts. The knowledge I gained at the Vision University sessions help me to answer their questions and to preach the gospel to unsaved family members, friends and co-workers.

I want to give glory to God and to thank all the teachers of the University for the opportunity to receive a quality Bible education while continuing my job and church ministry. At first it was very difficult and I even wanted to quit studying but then I got used to it and it became interesting to me. I learned a lot of new things, learned to analyze the material, to make conclusions, to work with literature. Each month I waited for classes as an opportunity to leave everything for two days and to dive into another interesting topic. I thank the teachers for an clear and interesting presentation of the material, for an easy and relaxed atmosphere in the classroom and for their sense of humor. I wish them all every success in the difficult work in the field of Christian education. May the Lord bless you and your families and will do for you exceeding abundantly above all what you ask or think.
