It has been too long since I have posted anything on here or spoke of any changes or updates, and I have much to share with you and I want to give my thanks. I have some important changes to tell you all about, and if you donated to myself and Igor in the past, these changes will affect how you can donate to us from now on, so please read on. If you only wish to read about the changes to donations you can jump straight to the sections Important Announcement & Changes to Donation Page.
I wrote this post in early January 2017 but still was hesitant to publish it straight away. I was trying to find the right words and was worried about how it might be received by people or whether I would own my emotions in this post. I didn’t want for people to get the wrong idea toward Jesus and Mary. But I’ve realised me not saying anything while I’m deciding may do more damage, so with some adjustment I’m just going to post a shortened version of it now:
From the start of 2017, Igor has been asked by Jesus and Mary to not be involved in Divine Truth production. This decision was made due to a number of emotional and ethical issues Igor needs to resolve. This is an opportunity for him to have time away to focus on addressing outstanding unloving emotions. Currently Igor is not volunteering his time for Divine Truth.
Lena continues to volunteer full-time helping to manage Divine Truth Production & Office teams and editing DT material.
Recently a good analogy came to me illustrating the process of getting out of addiction. I though it might be helpful to someone.
Addictions are like a speeding train, it has a lot of momentum built up, when you hit the brakes it will not stop straight away, it will take some time for it to stop but it will stop eventually. Have compassion for yourself during this process!
A very brief summary
Hi friends, my name is Igor Shakhanov. I was born in Odessa Ukraine, former USSR, top edge of Black Sea. My family ancestry is a bit of a mix but mostly Jewish. My parents were non-religious, we did not follow any religious customs nor spoke of God in a family but were not against the whole idea. If there was a holiday or celebration, Christian Jewish Russian whatever, we took it on just to celebrate but I don’t identify myself being of any religion or race. If you ask me, there is only one race and that’s the human race.
Welcome to the blog.
The main purpose for this post is to thank every person who has donated and supported Igor and I. I will try my best to stay on the topic, but I can not promise not to say some things that are just too important or I find too exciting to leave out. But mainly this is a post about donations.
