Lesicek Church Leader Laci introduces himself
Lesicek is the youngest of the Roma church plants that are part of the Hermanovce Cirkev Bratska. The leader of the fellowship, Laci, shares his testimony of God’s grace: “I was a very bad person—I drank a lot, I gambled, I was a thief and got into a lot of fights. I had a terrible home life. My wife and children suffered a lot. My life was running away like water, but—praise God—the brothers from Rokycany and Pierre came to Lesicek. When they preached God’s Word, I was deeply touched by what they said. I thank God that Jesus then came into our lives—mine and my wife’s—and changed us. I am so glad that God found us here in Lesicek, for now we live only for Him. I serve Him, because I came to know that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
