On May 19th 2020 one of the most famous apologists -- Ravi Zaccharias -- passed away. He left behind a huge legacy. Ravi went to be with the Lord. He traveled all over the world. He went to places where many people couldn't go. In addition, he also written many books about faith. Some of his books became bestsellers.

So, something has happened. I knew that it will happen eventually. It just I didn't expect it to happen so early. I didn't expect it to happen the way it did and the response it generated. However, this taught me a lesson that I need to remind myself of this possibility. I confess I wasn't prepared for the effect of that occurrence.

Update and New Writing Endeavours

I have been away from this blog for some time now. It has been over a year since my last post. Well. I am back. I hope to write articles here more often. I have been very busy last year. It has been a year of blessings and trials.
First, I got a job in my field -- an environmental assistant with one of the non-profits. I also had to balance 2 jobs for a few months. Also I had writers block; didn't know what to write about.
So I decided to return to my writing after much prayer and consideration.

What have I been doing with my writing...

Last year I spent much time writing for my contract job. I did some scientific-related writing for that job. After that job was over I was exhausted. I took a break from many things, not just writing. 
In the past couple of months I have been interacting with a few famous Christian authors via commenting on their post. Most of my comments are Bible verses. Sometimes those authors don't include Bible verses in their article. I will continue to do that. I think this is the great way for us all to use the internet. 

Later... Irina

Life of Trials

Recently I read a very encouraging article by Tim Challies. I decided to resume blogging. I haven't been much on social media either.

A Miracle At the Start of the Year

                                        This year started differently like no other. If someone told me how about it, I wouldn't be convinced that this could happen: a miracle in its classic flavor.

Death of a Saint

This summer has been quite different from other summers. I attended more funerals this summer than in a course of last five years.
A couple of faithful saints, who were a part of my current church, passed away. A sister of one of the faithful ladies died also. Many families of our church lost their loved ones.
I went to the funeral services. I went to the graveyard. However, their deaths didn't affect me as much as the death of Nabeel Qureshi, who passed away after losing a battle to cancer. He was only 34 years old. Nabeel had a wife and a daughter, who is only two years old.
I have never met Nabeel in person, but I have been following his ministry since 2013. He was a part of RZM ministries. Nabeel's testimony has touched many people across the world, including mine. Even though I haven't met Nabeel Qureshi in person, I had a chance to interact with him through twitter. I know that it was one of Nabeel's many social media interactions but for me, it was one of its kind. I am eternally grateful for it.
Nabeel Qureshi became a Christian after thoroughly studying Christianity. His parents immigrated from Pakistan to the USA. Nabeel was a Muslim. His beliefs were challenged at the college by a Christian roommate.
After becoming a Christian, Nabeel dedicated his life to follow Jesus Christ. He became apologetic. Nabeel did a lot of work. He is missed by many. The impact was great. I cannot wait to meet him in heaven someday.
