Educational & outreach project "Russian Search of God" presents short documentary "Isaev"
The film features the history of an ordinary man. His ancestors performed feats during the civil war and were victims of repression. He lives during peacetime and finds a place for heroic deeds in his daily life.
Veniamin Nikolaevich Isaev is a missionary, prison minister and the grandson of the legendary Peter Isaev, "Petka", aide-de-camp to Red Army commander Vasily Chapaev.
"When people ask me about my grandfather Petr Isaev, I always say, it does not matter whose grandson I am, who is my father - that is what matters. I was born and raised in an ideal Christian family, but did not went immediately on the way that had been known to me since childhood. The turning point in my life came at the age of 37. God said to me, 'If you don't repent - you will die." And I considered this seriously," - says Veniamin.
