Thank you for praying everyone, it’s been a weird 3days!!
Dávid Kovacs had to return to the UK regarding a situation to do with his job. Which meant we had to be in Kiev by Sunday pm.
We manage to hook up with a pastor who 8 months ago had fled Crimea… He lost his church & house, extended members of his family betrayed him and because of his accent, the Russians accused him of being an American spy. Now he lives as a refugee with his lovely family in Kiev.
This trip has been significant in terms of walking into many Divine set ups with pastors and wives in dyer circumstances. God has used us to break off discouragement and minister HOPE AND A FUTURE to them!
Now I was in Kiev…the finish line!! ( a week early )I was unsure whether to carry on or fly home with Dávid. I was in two minds which is never a great place to be!! Bible says, “a double minded man is unstable in all his ways!!” Then Sunday morning I received a prophetic word from Alan Saunder’s wife Sarah. She had no knowledge about where we were or my dilemma! The word was Based on Isaiah 52 :11&12 (message bible)
It left me in no doubt what to do!! Everything then happened so quick…Cookie back at HQ made the arrangements and I was home by 11pm last night!
Richard Madeley gave me a word at the beginning of the walk, Psalm 119:133 “Direct my steps by Your word..” Well Rich, He really did!
I went out on (Isaiah 52:7)
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
AND I CAME HOME ON (Isaiah 52:11&12:)
“Out of here! Out of here! Leave this place!
Don’t look back. Don’t contaminate yourselves with plunder.
Just leave, but leave clean. Purify yourselves
in the process of worship, carrying the holy vessels of God.
But you don’t have to be in a hurry.
You’re not running from anybody!
God is leading you out of here,
and the God of Israel is also your rear guard.” (Message Bible)
So it’s been different!!!! to say the least, but we live to fight another day.
Thank you again for praying! Here are pictures of an unexpected visit to the Hillsong Kiev mtg and earlier being booked by youth leaders in another church for future mission!
