Evening of Praise

Last night we gathered with several area churches, missionaries, and visiting short-term group from the US.  We were able to rent the town’s new Cultural House, a fully equipped theater like building that seats up to 300.  Around 100 attended as we enjoyed a variety of music, worship, and encouragement.

I think the highlight was our Ukrainian friend from Kiev Slava, he both entertained and blessed the group with his unique style, and more importantly sincere passion for God.  I think he’s like a Ukrainian Christian Bob Dylan:)

We were really glad to see our friends from Staiki come and sing a few songs.  Artum the keyboard player is very gifted composer and reminds me of my brother Troy, tender heart for God.

I pray the believers locally were encouraged.

I was refreshed and would like to see us host some more of these events through the year, bringing in area Christian talent and elevating Jesus Christ.

Pray for Luba, she is the young lady in charge of the building – she works for the town.  She’s helped us host several outreaches downtown, and last night she worked the sound.  She has been exposed to the gospel and God’s love several times, and last night I believe the evening touched her heart.  May God win her heart and create an incredible testimony in her life.

This sunday I visited the Baptist church in town.  They have about 30 members, one of them sitting in front of me sporting a tatoo from his past.  Reminded me of God's power to save.

Perspective - the Baptist sound system, remember tape decks?
