This past Sunday I had the privilege of participating in a baptismal service for brother Ivan from the village of Sahanskoe.
The service was conducted on the shore of a small lake a few miles outside of the village.
Thankfully, the sun came out and warmed things up just a bit for the baptism.
Vasiliy Poznyak from our church in Odessa baptized Ivan.
After the baptism we had communion. Vladimir, a pastor from a nearby village prays for Ivan.
Blessing the cup and the bread for communion.

Brother Ivan and brother Mikhail
I think every church service should end like this!
