Russian Group Gains Five New Members Through Baptism

As a result of an evangelistic series conducted this spring by Alexander Sidorenko, Russian Group (Portland) pastor, five young people were baptized: Konstantin Malyugin, Natalia Dumitrash, Miroslav Sidorenko, Lidiya Chepa and Diana Chepa.

“I did the right thing,” said Miroslav Sidorenko.

Sisters Lidiya and Diana Chepa agreed, adding, “We always wanted to be baptized together.”

The baptismal candidates participated in a thorough Bible course prior to the meetings, which were the culminating event in their decisions to commit themselves wholly to God. Others are currently in the process of studying toward baptism.

“We are working with people,” says Alexander Sidorenko. “It’s a lot of seeds planted.”

The Russian Group was established in 1994 and meets in the youth chapel at Tabernacle Church.
