St. Mary Magdalene Congregation in Luga, Leningrad Oblast, would like to thank the Diaconal Dept. of The Church of Ingria and its head Aleksandr Smirnov for the food packages prepared for people experiencing financial distress or hardship.
Aleksandr Smirnov: “We’re all wanderers on this earth. For many years, the church in Luga and its senior pastor Rev. Igor Shcherbakha have been serving “wanderers,” people who can’t find shelter and comfort anywhere else. May our Lord bless this ministry! For our part, we at the Diaconal Department wanted to assist this ministry a little by providing some food. We’d like to thank Vladimir Shestipalov who used his own car to deliver the groceries and Mr. Levin’s personal belongings from St. Petersburg to Luga.”
