Avondale Memorial Seventh-day Adventist Church, Coorangbong, Australia, Sabbath, September 24,2011. The senior pastor, Elder Vadim Butov, had recently had to return to Russia for his mother's impending death and subsequent funeral. If certain of the Russian authorities had been aware of his return visit, he likely would have been arrested and placed in prison for his evangelistic activity he conducted when he served there as a pastor and conference president. They had already tried to imprison him. He was willing to take the risk to work with his mother on her death-bed so she would give her heart to Jesus. When he asked me for the title of my sermon, I had no idea of any of the events of his personal life in the weeks before my arrival in Australia.
