WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT BEYOND THE RAPIDS
For many years we wanted to tell the story of how God helped our family through persecution. When God laid this desire on our hearts, we simply wanted to give testimony to His faithfulness. We had no idea that times would change and that religious freedom in America would erode. It is our hope that Christians in the west will learn from our experience, and know that when persecution comes, it is possible to walk with the Lord and serve Him. Circumstances may change, believers may live in freedom or persecution, but Jesus is always the same. We are grateful to Evelyn Puerto for reliving the era of persecution with us, so that others can be encouraged to be faithful to the end.
—Igor and Lena Yaremchuk
This is the moving story of a precious believer in Christ, who remained faithful despite extreme, government-sponsored persecution. More than that, it is the story of God’s faithfulness to His beleaguered people, showing once more that even the most evil intentions of sinful men can be employed by God to bring about great good. Irpin Biblical Seminary is a monument to that great truth, and the life of Dr. Alexei Brynza is a testimony to the immeasurable grace of our omnipotent God, who is able to make all things (including our hardest trials) work together for good.
At long last you have the opportunity to read the inspiring story of my friends Lena & Igor Yaremchuk. You will be fascinated to see what opened Igor’s aesthetic eyes to recognize the existence of God. And you will be inspired by the heartrending story of a family’s struggle for survival amidst crushing persecution. This book will bless your life.
