One of the best Christian pastors at the International Missionary Society (IMS), Pastor Anton Salavyov, Vice President of Oceania Division who served the Lord faithfully for his whole life in different countries, such as Australia and Fiji among others, would need our urgent prayers again, because two stents were placed in his heart on February 14, 2024, and the one of them, almost 5 cm long, provoked problems, as of his health condition, well informed sources confirmed. More than one year ago, on March 3, 2023, Pastor Anton Salavyov preached an important sermon live from the Chapel of General Conference at IMS:

Pastor Anton Salavyov was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, during the era of the Iron Curtain. Despite of the international isolation of his native country provoked by the pro Russian local government, Pastor Anton Salavyov dreamed to be a Christian missionary who would have the privilege to serve the Lord in a far country. And God let his dream come true by opening the state borders after government change in Bulgaria on November 10, 1989.
