Peter & Tatiana Mitskevich – Russia
When Peter Mitskevich tells of his childhood he says, “I was influenced by Christian parents and grandparents. My grandfather spent more than ten years in prison for Christ. My father lost his job as a dentist after his conversion. I was prayed into faith by my mother. My first prayer to the Lord was at age four. I was 14 years old when I prayed and dedicated my life to Christ. Peter and his family have known a life of loss for the cause of Christ, but that has only fueled his desire for ministry.
