Moderator’s note: At Pastor Sergei’s request, the normal security protocol’s we take to protect identities is not being employed.
From Pastor Sergei: “Friends, I am incredibly grateful to God that he helped my wife and my sons get to the border with the European Union. Now they are safe! This is indescribable news and comfort for a father’s heart!
“Yesterday, they asked me, ‘Pastor Sergei, how are you doing there, all alone?’
Brothers and sisters, I’m not really alone! I’m here with my brothers and sisters. The Lord is with us, right here and right now. He has us in his hands and says, ‘Don’t fear, son. Don’t be afraid, daughter. I control everything! I’m with you!” It’s incredibly comforting. It’s incredible motivation and therapy that He is with me! And he’s with you. He says the following words in the Gospel of Matthew: “Behold, I am with you!” This is the Lord Jesus Christ speaking to us. He is with us today; he is with us tomorrow; and He will be with us until the end of the age.”
