Almaz children’s ministry currently unites more than 160 children and 100 volunteers.
...so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
Aleksandr Kovbasyuk with a child
