Ukraine Musings – 01/18/10
What a week we had in Krivoy Rog Ukraine. God blessed in so many ways, even to the point that I played guitar…Not!!!
God is at work in the Ukraine. There is a wave of people coming to know Christ. On Sunday morning I opened the altars for people to accept Christ and eight people left their seat, walked to the front and prayed the sinners prayer.
At the pastor’s conference I was asked to pray for a man who has worked in the mines all his life. Twenty days ago, he was given two days to live. Eighteen days later at the conference, we prayed for his complete healing. On Saturday he went to the doctor for a check-up and they gave him a complete bill of health and said that there was no trace of the seven diseases in his body. On Sunday morning he and his wife stood to testify to the faithfulness of God!!!
Following the Sunday a.m. service, we drove six hours back to Kiev and now week two begins.
It looks like another very busy week as I will be meeting with small groups of leaders during the day Monday through Thursday and speaking in different churches Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Friday as well as a youth conference on Saturday (perhaps that would be a good time to bring out my guitar – what do you think?). I have to end this blog as I am about to leave for a church to talk to their leadership team tonight. This is what I signed up for when Reinventing the Church was birthed so I am grateful to see the vision being fulfilled.
Sunday I end my stay in the Ukraine by speaking in the Church of Hope, a large church here in Kiev.
I continue to covet your prayers as the schedule is demanding. I have been fighting off the effects of a small Ukrainian cold but so far so good.
The people in the churches are so hungry for God and will wait in line for a chance to be prayed for. Please pray for anointing, strength and endurance to meet the demands.
Until next time…
