«Dear Oleg Vladislavovich, I want to thank you for your presentation at our Teachers’ Conference in Ryazan this morning. I teach History in school. I have a Master’s Degree in World Religions. I have been attending church for several years. It was today, however, that my faith suddenly “came alive”. Not just a wishful thinking, not just a philosophy, not just a good habit but as living trust in the living God. Thank you for so generously sharing with us your time, your knowledge and your experience. Respectfully, M.”
It was definitely worth my travelling across the world to receive this one note at the end of my presentation! Even more exciting—to hear the same and similar responses from dozens of teachers and student-teachers who came from all over Ryazan Region for their annual training Conference!
