Evidence of God's love...

In Victor's adolescence chest deformity has benn revealed. At that time, and even now, none of the doctors in Tuva did not know how it appeared and how to treat it. As Victor was a young man, it did not disturb him, but with age the compression of heart and lungs began to disturb really badly. Doctors could not even do an ultrasound of the heart, as it was closed with lung tissue. Poor blood supply, loss of consciousness during the blood tests, lack of breath, headaches and numb hands have become permanent features of his life. About five years ago I saw a story on TV about the surgery to correct congenital chest wall deformity. Victor did not take it seriously. He said that you never know what they show, especially if it is not available. Not often, but I began to pray about it. I believed that all things are possible for God. The Lord is always faithful and He's never late. “Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.” (Matthew 6:8), “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” (Psalms 37:4)

"The missionary after surgery" - greetings from family

 

 

 

The surgery was successful: the doctors put Viktor a titanium plate, straightened the funnel in the chest. Gradually he will get used to it, but now he's suffering from a strong pain. Victor is constantly taking painkillers. Heart should take the place, and lungs – straighten out over time. Viktor has already started to get up and walk slowly.

Victor Zagvozdkin

Pastor of the church"Light of Gospel" in Kyzyl, Republic Tuva, Victor Zagvozdkin and his family share the gospel in a Buddhist-shamanistic culture. God blesses this church with saved souls of Russian speakers, as well as from indigenous Tuvan people. Already there has appeared brothers, able to serve and preach the Word, as in the local church and in the village of Ak-Dovurak. There is also a bible group in Aryg-Uzuu. Victor tries to develop the service and despite the great distances between settlements in this region often attends meetings in Ak-Dovurak, where he noted positive growth in the Word minister Aias Oorzhak and his wife Saylyk. He studied at the School of Bible preaching. Now he is investing a lot of time and effort in the development of the church. Besides serving brother Victor constantly works with his hands fully ensuring the life of his family, and helping those who have the need. His wife and eldest daughter seriously dedicate themselves to serving too. The family has four children, the youngest daughter is now 4 years old.

This year, Victor's family has faced a serious challenge. Victor's strongly concave chest from birth and the traumas of many years back injury during a car accident started to cause troubles. Recently a strong shortness of breath and chest pain appeared. Victor had to go through a lot of examinations (tests, ultrasound, MRI, x-rays, etc.). Conclusion of Physicians is sclerosis of the lungs. The bones of the chest began to grow inside with age, leading to a strong compression of the heart and lungs. The heart does not run smoothly because it's sandwiched between the spine and chest. But the heart is not important, the upper portions of the lungs are not disclosed and has "imploded". Because of this, the lung tissue has changed, it should be soft and airy, and now it has turned into a "solid piece of meat", which has led to pulmonary sclerosis. Hence, shortness of breath and severe strain on the heart. Victor has been living with it for many years and has never thought it will reflect so much on the state of his health. Now he suffers severe pain in the chest at times. It is not clear whether it is the lungs ache, or bone compresses. His heart began to feel beating on ribs. And the last two months fingers, then hands have become numb. Waking up, he has to knead them, otherwise he doesn't really feel them. Victor attributes this to the fact that the heart doesn't work at full capacity which leads to poor blood circulation, because the hands are cold.

Family and marriage with the eyes of God

      On the 7th-8th of March 2014 in the church "The Light of Gospel" in Kyzyl was held a seminar. The theme of the seminar was "Family and marriage with the eyes of God". Our brothers and sisters from the church in Ak-Dovurak had also joined to the seminar. Victor Zagvozdkin, Ayas Oorzhak, Artem Khertek and Huler Chuldum were the speakers. We try to delegate and to involve Tuvinians brothers in serving, because the churches population mainly consists of Tuvinians.
