Spotlight: Long-distance faith
The young couple makes a six-hour round trip by train to worship with a Church of Christ in this Central European nation, served by a mission team that formed at the University of Arkansas.
Kopecky was baptized about a year ago and shared his faith with Volinova after they met as university students in the Czech capital, Prague.
Volinova “shared with him her lifelong feelings and convictions that there must be someone like God,” missionaries Joshua and Sarah Beall reported in a recent newsletter.
Volinova studied the Bible with Christians and recently was baptized.
