All his life Alexandr Vorontsov lived in Pechora (Komi Republic), where he was born in December 1984. By that time the family already had its eldest daughter Catherine, and a few more years later, Alexander had a younger sister, Lyubov, who was named after his mother.

Alexandr recalls with warmth how as a child he closely communicated with children from faithful families: there were tea drinks, holidays and biblical quizzes. Later, when he was already in his 20s, he felt the love of the Christian brotherhood even more when he attended a large worship meeting. The biblical knowledge he had received, as well as the example of a believing mother, had good result and in 2012 Alexandr decided to devote his life to serving God.

Alexandr is a third class carpenter. He also completed courses in accounting and computer skills. Lately he has been working in the field of keeping clean and order, but he is very interested in computers.

In 2016, Alexandr married Yelena, a lawyer by education. The spouses love to travel, ride bikes and ski.

Because of criminal prosecution and religious discrimination, Alexandr and Yelena live in an atmosphere of discomfort and anxiety because of the unknown. Sleep disappears at times. In spite of everything, they are determined to remain faithful to God. His relatives, especially Alexandr's parents and sisters, are very worried about him.
