Sergey Gryaznov was born in 1974 in Omsk. He attended eight grades in school and worked for his Grandfather in a fish protection agency. After his mother died his life seemed to stop. He sent his wife to her mother, started drinking and sold his father’s house, car and belonging to finance his drinking and lived on the streets. In 2010 during the winter, he went fishing and was drinking with friends and fell asleep outside. The cold temperature froze his legs to a point that they could not be saved and they had to be amputated. He was now living on the streets without any legs. Three years ago, he was invited into a house of prayer and he came even though he felt embarrassed.
He was accepted and they washed, dressed and gave him shelter. Today, legless but having Jesus in his heart he rejoices in salvation. Sergey received prostheses and this summer will be baptized and become a member of this church in Kovaleva where “Bethesda” is located.
