Brothers and Sisters,
Our bishop Ivan Laptev has been diagnosed with melanoma. He is going through necessary exams and treatment. It is during trials that we find the prayer support of our brothers and sisters in the faith especially important. Therefore, we would like to ask everyone to join together in prayer for Bishop Ivan’s health and family!
“‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.’ The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:24-26, ESV)
