03: Nelli and Art Pavlenko on Marriage and Waiting on God

IMG_4475.jpg

Nelli was born in Russia, Art was born in Ukraine.  Both moved to the US at a young age. Both Nelli and Art were previously married and were done with relationships, wanting to be single for a while.  Friends wanted the two of them to meet and invited them to a concert, and even though their minds were made up on relationships, they couldn’t help that sparks flew upon meeting. They fought the feelings for a while because they didn’t want the commitment again yet wanted the relationship because it felt right.  We see how ultimately it was God’s plan to bring them together in marriage and how He has blessed their marriage while keeping Him at the center.

They answer these questions and more on today’s episode:
“What have you learned about God’s heart as you’ve been married?”
”What are some hurtles you’ve had that you’ve had to overcome as a husband and wife?”
”How has keeping Christ at the center changed everything?”
”What does community look like?”
