Youth Athletes from St. Petersburg

June 13, 2014

“Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost” (Luke 15:6).

Recently Pastor Andrew and Casey were both approached by two different groups to supply Russian language Good & Evil illustrated Bible story books to youth athletes from St. Petersburg, Russia who were in Atlanta traveling and playing baseball games as part of a cultural exchange program. The hand of God was so evident: bringing these youth to Atlanta to play baseball, and yet God had a divine appointment for them. We were able to give the Word of God to them and to witness and share the gospel with them. They were able to take this literature back home to their families and communities! We praise God for such an opportunity to help change the heart of St. Petersburg from Atlanta!

Dima, one of the athletes, who had received a Good & Evil book when he first arrived, had read the entire book in two days time! He gave his copy to the doctors and coach on the team, and they got so excited that the last day, before they left, they begged us to give them copies of Good & Evil for the entire team, as well as Russian Bibles for the adults. The host families were so excited they also wanted the Bibles in Russian and Andrew was able to invite them to his church in Atlanta. It is amazing how Good & Evil creates such a hunger for God and an enthusiasm to read the Word of God!
