Our story

The Anischenko family's story

The Open Heart Ministry was born after Elijah Anischenko, the hero of “The Puzzle of Elijah” book, was born to Oleg and Olga Anischenko’s family.

"the Puzzle of Elijah" book

Elijah was born with a very ill heart and lived only seven months and seven days.  He changed his family’s life forever by showing them the other side of this life and the pain of others.  Elijah’s presence in Oleg and Olga Anischenko’s life has given birth to “The Puzzle of Elijah” book and “The Open Heart Ministry”. 

Birth of "The Open Heart Ministry" and "Open Heart Center"

The “Open Heart Ministry” helps people find peace and inner healing through life stories about God’s mercy during fiery trials in life.
