Last Sunday, September 6, 2020, Ivan Ryasik from Kirov in the Urals region was confirmed at St. Luke’s Congregation in Cheboksary, Chuvashia. Thanks be to God that the small Lutheran congregation in Kirov has grown by another wonderful disciple of Christ! Ivan plans to continue his education at the seminary this fall. Soli Deo gloria!
