On June 15th, 2014 (Father’s Day), I (Oleg) preached a sermon at Bethany Baptist Church, the congregation in Toronto that we are members of. My message was on “How to be a Good Father. Learning from God the Father.” I emphasized three things that we can learn from God: (1) God loves us unconditionally. (2) He accepts us for who we are and treats us with respect and (3) God is always ready to spend quality time with us.
In June and July 2014, I will preach at Bethany Baptist two more times. I am grateful for these opportunities, as they provide me with a chance to also share a bit about missions in the former Soviet Union and the state of the church in Central Asia.
