Do you mean to tell me that you’ve been locking this man up in this crate for two years, and it hasn’t done any good? Did it ever occur to you that there may be a good reason this man isn’t following your orders?"
Nickolai Panchuk, a pastor living in Communist Russia, struggled as a prisoner of the KGB to find his purpose. Persecuted for his Christian faith, Nickolai remained in a Siberian camp for 10 years, refusing to sacrifice his faith and suffering the consequences. Harassed, beaten, and dejected, Nickolai found hope in the unlikeliest source: an old ox named Maksim. With the help and strength of God, Nickolai and Maksim worked together to perform a weekly miracle—witnessing for Christ in the most disparaging of circumstances and winning souls along the way.
