When he was 17 years old, Aleksandr was baptized in water, which symbolized the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and his identification with Him. Right after this, Aleksandr actively involved himself in serving the Lord in his local church. He worked with youth groups and directed the gospel musical group.
