Testemomy of Sergey

I serve time in prison in Barnaul town. Before reading BCC I had been a Christian. I repented my sins and let Christ in my heart while I was in the rehabilitation center of the church “Cornerstone”. Though I had some knowledge, BCC helped me solidify it. Sergey BratushevskyPart 5, telling about Jesus the Prophet, the King and the Priest, was especially helpful. In prison I go to local church. BCC helped me in evangelization: the more I get to know about God, the stronger I become in my faith.

I really liked order, clarity, brevity of BCC. Though I think that some moments would be easier to understand if other Bible verses would be used as examples.

I know examples of some of my friends who, like me, were really spoilt, but after getting to know God, they were changed both internally and externally. God completely changed them with Holy Spirit, changed their way of thinking and behavior. I can see God’s blessings in their lives and lives of their family.

And now through my friends I see how wonderful the life is if you live it according to God’s will. That life has real love, kindness, compassion and reluctance to sins. I saw all that and decided to live with God. I believe that God approves of my decision and is happy with me. Thank you very much fer BCC. You do very important thing. May God bless you!
