Slava and Tanya Kratko
Deaf Pastor, Missionary, and Evangelist
I, Stanislav, accepted Christ as my personal Savior on July 21st, 1997. Since then I permanently studied the Bible.
God called me to become a missionary in Sevastopol on June 10th, 1999. Many people came to repentance. God chose me to become a deacon and on June 9th, 1999 I was ordained. I served a lot in Simferopol and Sevastopol.
I started a deaf ministry in Yalta and within 2 years praise the Lord for 12 people that came to repentance. Once a month I went to Kharkov for evangelism. I also did evangelism in Kherson and other cities. On December 6th, 2005 I was ordained to become a pastor of the deaf and hard-of-hearing church here in Simferopol Baptist Church. I spent ten days in Krasnoyarsk city, Russia, where 3 people came to repentance. I took part in Christian camps for deaf children in Zhitomir and Simferopol. At present, every Saturday I serve in Evpatoria and every Sunday I serve in our church in Simferopol. Once a month I go to Sevastopol. I give all the glory to God Almighty for allowing me to take part in this labor for His glory!
1 Cor. 15:57-58 - But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
