I thought I would just take a few moments to reflect on the events of last week walking with the cross in Malta. No two walks are the same, so we always expect the unexpected. However I was still suprised by the Spirit.
This was the easiest walk I have ever done, (I have know done 15). The accommodation was excellent. Everyone who hosted us was superb. The walking was easy, made much easier by my son not letting me carry the cross till day 4. God provided for all our needs. The weather was set fair.
However the astonishing thing was how open people were to hear about Jesus. Since the summer we heard that there had been an increasing openess to the Holy Spirit. We prayedwith dozens of people on the streets and remarkably 27 people prayed to receive Jesus Christ on the streets from only 6 days walking
The evangelical church is still relatively small. My guess is maybe 15 churches with about 1000 belivers of which a good number of them are not Maltese. However there is a strong renewal movement within the Roman Catholic Church with groups like Maranatha. I sense the Holy Spirit is working in the Catholic Church and there will be an overflow into the other churches.
Malta needs our prayer, the island is ripe for a move of God.
On our last day we were in Gozo, as far as I am aware there is no Protestant church on the island, just a few scattered believers meeting mid week. Yet in just a few hours we saw 7 people open their hearts to Jesus.
One of the promises over the ministry of Cross the Nations is,”If we will go, he (Jesus ) will come.”
So we are expecting to hear of great things in Malta overthe coming weeks and months.
