Dimitriy and Rita Vershigora
I work in the maintenance department of our campus: I maintain service vehicles, petrol technology and hand tools. Also I maintain electrical grid. During the Bible Institute along with students I go to evangelism and to visit churches. Also I do sound and light effects for our conferences and camps. I am glad to serve with what I am able to!
I was born in a Christian family. My parents were ministering at a baptist church. My father was a pastor and my mother sang and accompanied for the choir. I spent a lot of time at church, heard the Gospel many times, but nobody ever explained it to me in a way that I would understand it. When I was 15 my father died and I began to think more about the reality of death. After this I was invited to join a Bible study group where, studying the Gospel, I realized that my sins need to be forgiven. I believed that Christ died and rose again for me, therefore I asked Him to forgive my sins and to give me an eternal life. Desiring to get to know better my God, I went to a Bible Institute. Reading the Bible, I noticed 2 Cor. 5:14-15. I realized that God wants me to serve Him full time. I didn't know how much longer I will live, therefore I decided to invest my life into ministry. After my studies I became a missionary at Word of Life Ukraine.
But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Rom. 5:8
