Hello from Washington DC, Bolling Air Force Base!
Completed a 20+ years career in the US Air Force, now working supporting the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a consultant.
I joined CONNECT, in hope that my marathon as a Christian continues to develop me in ways that are meaningful to my God, family, and country.
Was raised in California by Russian immigrants. Was raised up in the Russian Orthodox church, and taught by loving parents to love Jesus at an early age. Went to a Catholic High School, learned the “catechism”, and experienced the love of the nuns and fathers of the church. Married a Baptist, and, while respecting the Orthodox and Catholic folks greatly, was moved to have a more intimate relationship with God through the protestant manner of worship.
Met Ravi through the radio, and personally met him at the US Naval Academy during one of his talks there. Always admired his 1) articulate, clear, logical manner of conveying thoughts, and 2) loving manner in which he did so, and 3) strong ability to meet adversity during Q&A’s (an area I need to get better at!)
Love to all,
