Today, God allowed me to have my first meeting with a church outside of my home church. It was so exciting to prepare and to go and speak about God’s mission and His call for me to go to Ukraine. I met with the Outreach and Evangelism Pastor for Zion Church here in Maryland. He is a missions minded man of God serving in a seven year old church that is about to take the world by storm. As I drove home from the meeting I was ecstatic about having such an awesome opportunity to dialogue about missions and God’s passion for the lost. God just keeps blowing my mind with the opportunities that He’s presenting me with and the people the He’s allowing me to meet. Praise Him!
A Great and Effective DoorToday was the second and final day for the Annual Meeting and it was powerful. The speaker confirmed that God has indeed opened a door. I shared my testimony about how short term missions to Ukraine impacted my life. The district also commissioned and prayed for Natasha and me. All in all it was a very emotion filled day. But through it all God was speaking and moving. I truly do love Him for His goodness. Here’s a picture of Pastor Jenkins praying for me with Pastor Crawford.
I arrived in Cleveland OH today for the MBC Annual Meeting. The flight was delayed a bit, but we arrived safely. I attended a great session on Reaching Your Muslim Neighbors and then we were off to a dinner cruise on the river and lake. Below is a picture of the Cleveland skyline at night from the water. It is beautiful!
Praise God! I want to take the time to acknowledge God for His goodness and celebrate all that He is doing in the earth and in my life. I have a few new partners and praise God I am now 59% supported. God is good and His mercy endures forever.
This week is also moving week for me. My good friend Karen has opened up her home to me and I am now officially living in my new space. I still have to move the last few things out of my house but that will happen by the end of the week. It has been a difficult process for me but God is good and His mercy endures forever. Praise Him for His goodness!
