On this episode of Fuel For Life, I interview my good friend and fellow church planter Aleksei Kharlamov. Aleksei immigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area eight years ago from Moscow, Russia. Aleksei and his wife Lera are planting a new church, Spring Church, in Moraga, CA, in the East Bay Area of Northern California. In this incredible interview, Aleksei tells the story of his life leading up to planting Spring Church. Aleksei, with passion, clarity, and, at times, tears, shares the story of his radical salvation, as he surrendered his life to Jesus. He recalls what it was like to grow up and be a pastor's kid, candidly shares about his parents divorce and what it was like to grow up in a church, including meeting his wife. Aleksei also shares, with incredible transparency, how God called him and his wife to move to the Bay Area from Moscow, Russia, how he almost lost his entire family, and how God radically saved him. As I interviewed Aleksei, I could not help shedding tears, as his full testimony is dripping with the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. This interview speaks powerfully to the radical nature of God's grace. Our Lord is indeed the great Hound of Heaven.
