Testimony

On March, 31, 1991 a great miracle happened to me and changed all my life!
I was dying from an incurable disease named cancer. Doctors offered me to remove my breast but I refused to go through the surgery. In agonizing pain, I was waiting for my death, tired and disappointed in life.
My life was a search for the truth and love. People whom I relied on betrayed me. Lies, malice and indifference surrounded me. All that I wanted was to quit forever!
God? Where is He? If He exists then why do I suffer? Many people are still asking this question today but they cant find the answer. But there is an answer!
That night, March 31, I was dying. For 2 weeks before I hadnt been able to eat. My hair had fallen off, I was promptly losing my weight, my pain was unbearable. Metastasis had spread all over my body. I was approaching my end. Laine Arens, a singer, a cheerful optimist, was dying.
And suddenly the light filled my room! The One Who loved me came to me. But who was He? Jesus Christ, Alive and Resurrected came to me, the sinner that was unworthy of it! He came with His Love and His great mercy. Who was I? Just a little woman, forgotten by everyone. He saw me from His Heaven. And He, the Great and Omnipotent Savior, was talking to me. I was shocked completely. It was a miracle! It proved that Jesus Christ is Alive! He exists!
His voice was soft. His great love was sheding on me, filling me with peace and comfort.
He said, I love you, Laine. You wont die; you will live forever. And you will never be sick again or be in need, because I will always take care of you if you agree to live in a new way, by the law of Love, and not to sin anymore.
By that time I knew nothing about Jesus Christ. I only knew that He was crucified on the cross, but I had no idea what for and why. I hadnt been interested in God at all.
So I said, in shock and surprise, Jesus Christ, I agree. I dont understand a thing, but I agree. Please, dont leave me alone. I feel such a pain! I am yours forever! And then something wonderful happened. A warm stream filled me and my strength returned into my body. Cancer tumor disappeared and all the pain left my body! I was free! I was healthy!
Since then on I dont know what its like to be sick! Jesus has been faithful to His Word. My body is completely new now and I became 20 years younger during these years of new life with Jesus Christ! Let all the glory be to our Lord!
The Lord called me to leave the stage where I had been performing for 20 years singing romances and folk songs. He called me to serve Him, to praise God and to bring His love to all the people. He called me to care for those who dont know yet about Christ and His great love and mercy.
I was called by the Lord to bring the Gospel the Good News all around the world and to be a shepherd for His people. Later, studying the Bible I learned that Jesus Christ had many female disciples. He talked to a Samaritan woman by the well and called her to serve Him and tell all the people about Him (Jn 4:4-42). And through the word of one woman the whole town was saved, many people came to Christ, touched Him and knew Him personally.
Mary Magdalene followed Jesus everywhere, learning from Him and serving Him. Who had she been before? A scarlet woman, the one Jesus cast out seven demons out of. And she left her former ways of life and followed Jesus Christ (Mark 16:9-10). Moreover, when He was raised from the dead, first of all He showed Himself to her, to a woman!
For me it is a great honor to serve God of love and mercy! I am happy to be His Samaritan woman in Russia and all over the world! Wherever the Lord directs me to, thousands of people give their hearts to Jesus Christ and get free from the most serious diseases of the century!
The Gospel is the P O W E R to save!
The Gospel is the Living Word of God for all the people! The Gospel tells us what the Lord wants us to be like people, created by the image of the Holy God, the Creator of the Universe. The Word of God heals (Ps 107:20). Through studying of the Gods Word lives of many people are changed, filled with joy and purpose. Peace and comfort come into their wounded hearts. Jesus said, Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. He also said, I am the way, the truth, and the life (Jn 14:6). Many people are searching for the truth of life for themselves and cant find it. But it is just right beside them. You just believe and accept it. Jesus is the Truth and the Life for everyone. He shed His precious Blood for all the mankind, having redeemed us with the price of His Own Life!
In 1993 I graduated from a Biblical School and a Ministry School. In 1997 I got a Diploma of the Word of Life Biblical Center in Moscow and the School for Pastors in St. Petersburg.
And now I am a spiritual leader and an ordained and dedicated pastor of the Evangelical Christian Church Spring of Life that is a part of the Christian Church Association Christian Union in St. Petersburg where I was ordained.
Our church is some kind of an ambulance for many other churches of different cities and countries, from which people come to us for help. Those who labor and are heavy laden reach out their hands to Jesus Christ asking Him for help, and Christ is working through us on this Earth. He gave us His power and authority, which His Heavenly Father gave to Him, and we who believe in Him are the light for other people living in darkness and suffering.
You are the salt of the earth, you are the light of the world, Jesus said to those who trusted in Him.
He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (Jn 14:12).
So we are continuing the ministry of Christ, for He commanded us Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature And these are signs for those who believe:
1   In My name shall they cast out devils;
2   They shall speak with new tongues;
3   They shall take up serpents;
4   And if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
5   They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Mk 16:15-18).
And those signs are for everybody who believes in Jesus. Christianity is not a religion! Christianity is the way of life that Jesus Christ brought to us in the New Testament with our God, our Heavenly Father, Who wants to see us the people just the way He created us full of love and light, mercy and kindness, without evil and hatred, bloodshed and depravity.
God calls all the people to repent in their sins in the last times we are living now. All the evil will be eliminated from the face of the Earth. But, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish, Jesus says in Luke 13:3,5.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life (Romans 6:23, 3:23).
