Natalie Dzhalolova and Kostya Kovalenko, Rostov-on-Don, Russia: “Light of the Holy Ghost”
This picture was taken at a young single adult conference in Ukraine (Karpaty). One of the activities at this conference was to climb to the top of a mountain. Upon reaching the assigned place, we were all tired. We sang a hymn and watched the sun gradually move behind the mountain. We played and took pictures. I then noticed that Yarik did not participate with the others. He was lying on a hill and writing in his journal. I watched him for a while and felt inclined to capture the wonderful moment. I don't know what he was writing in his journal, but I am confident that he was doing it under the influence of the Holy Ghost. Perhaps the light in this picture depicts the light from the Holy Ghost.
—Kostya Kovalenko and Natalie
