Faith and Religion, Russia

A Russian Mormon Missionary

An hour before she entered the Missionary Training Center, a Russian Sister Missionary shared the story of her conversion Mormonism and her powerful testimony of Jesus Christ…

I met Galena while I was serving my mission in Russia. Since that time, her and I have been close friends. Whenever we hang out, I can’t help but feel of her strong faith in Jesus Christ and in the Restored Gospel. I always learn something profound when I’m with her.

In 2008, I was privileged enough to accompany Sister Chenina to the MTC. We were given some time to talk at the MTC (in which we recorded her testimony) before she left to start her mission.

Initially, this video was released on January 12th, 2009, on the fourth anniversary of my own entrance into the MTC. Her testimony has been incredibly successful: receiving thousands of views and comments from around the world. Sister Chenina herself was informed of amazing missionary experiences as a direct result of this video.

The original of this video was eventually removed to make some corrections in editing, translations and music and to add pictures from her mission.

I hope that you enjoy this sweet testimony of Sister Chenina and that you share it (preferably, with a Russian!).
