Sergey works as a nurse at the Drug Addiction Treatment Center in Zaporozhye, Ukraine. Today, many of his patients are refugees from the war zone, as many have turned to drugs in the midst of the suffering and turmoil. Sergey is very welcoming to Christians, and he even invited Mission Eurasia’s students to serve among his patients. He also knows Yuriy, the student featured in another story, because he helped treat him when he was recovering from his drug addiction.
After seeing how God transformed Yuriy’s life, Sergey started asking questions about Jesus and the gospel. When Yuriy brought copies of the Light magazine to distribute to the patients at the center, Sergey and some of the other nurses also read it! Sergey was so impressed by the magazine’s beautiful design that he helped Yuriy distribute several copies to his patients. Their response was very encouraging, and many immediately wanted to learn more about the gospel.
