Dima descended from a long line of alcoholics, like many living in Siberia. And similar to other boys his age in Russia, Dima had thought very little about God until he attended a OneHope-sponsored HopeFest Celebration and received his own Book of Hope. As he listened to the Gospel presentation, he was so overjoyed to learn about faith in Christ that he chose to follow Jesus.

Today, Dima has a tremendous ministry in Vladivostok, where he became a pastor and planted three churches! In 2014, Dima helped us distribute our billionth copy of the Book of Hope to a young girl in China.
