Well we’re packed and ready to leave at 6am for Minsk tomorrow morning.
We’ll be driving straight through – hopefully about 9hrs if all goes well!
It will be interesting to see how the border goes – two van loads and most of the Ukrainians are students, their first time exiting Ukraine! The border can take anywhere from 2hrs to half a day.. if they let you in.
We’ll be spending Saturday noon – midnight in worship and prayer with +500 young people – well, probably not 12hrs straight but it will be neat to join 100’s of young people as we cry out to the Lord for His presence and reality to change nations. There are 13 bands and artists rotating every hour, including Collins (only only US representative!).
After this, I will speak 3 different times on Sunday, including a group of +100 young people at a new ministry called ‘6pm’. It is led and was started by Belarussian young people with a passion for God.
I’m writing quickly as I’m unsure of our ability to blog there – no laptop this time, still in the hands of thieves though we do have GPS tracking with icloud.. 🙁 We will post to FB with our phones as we are able. Excited to spend quality time with the students and expose them to the Kingdom of God at work.
Please pray with us for:
- traveling protection and border favor.
- health of entire team and our family.
- God to work on the students hearts we are taking with us.
- God to refresh us all!
- Sunday messages, and also next week sharing two other times at a 5 night worship event – Awaken Belarus Lord!
- For the police while we are gone, and protection of our house – we do have some people staying and a new alarm system on alert.
Thank you to an old school friend from the County who donated last week to our robbery helping us replenish funds for our trip costs. God is so gracious to us.
Thankful for our crew here at Lighthouse in Ukraine, they not only hold down the fort but will be off to Kiev Tuesday to buy more product for Widows and visiting, serving and loving well in our absence. Pray for them too!
