Cancer teaches a lesson of love
“There were no great truths revealed or deep philosophical questions,” Johnson said. “It was just a conversation between old friends. But for me, it was the sweet sound of victory.”
Johnson taught Gubko at International Christian University in Kiev, Ukraine. She worshiped with a church that met in Johnson’s home. After Johnson returned to the U.S., Gubko developed cancer and could not afford treatments. Ukrainian Mission Work, a ministry of the Westworth Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas, collected funds to help.
Gubko survived the treatments and now lives with her husband outside of London.
Those who contributed to help Gubko “gave a lesson of love to a young Christian who continues to show Christ’s love to others,” Johnson said.
