Until we meet again - here or in heaven?!

Thursday was Ascension Day which is a fairly big deal here (in memory of Jesus ascending to heaven). We attended a wonderful service (even if it lasted two hours) which consisted of two testimonies, one devotional, one sermon and inspirational singing.

The testimony came from our new pastor friend Andres (serving in the east) who shared how God has been faithful throughout this war. It was very emotional.

Sig gave the devotional from Habakkuk 3:17-19: “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places."

Then a different pastor gave the main sermon about how important it was for Jesus to go back to heaven - so the Holy Spirit could come to us. And how we need the Holy Spirit!

The last few days have continued to bring rest and peace to our guests. They are not used to being served, so it has been an adjustment for them. We also have been treated to wonderful meals and treats by Mary’s extended family. We are all being blessed one way or another.

On Thursday afternoon, one couple left, and by Friday evening another couple had arrived. This was a military chaplain who now spends most of his time helping evacuate folks out of their villages as they continue to be hit by enemy fire. When the war started he said he had no idea what to do but then felt led to be an evacuation driver. His wife stays back and prays while he goes out. Such courage and trust in the Lord! 

During our time together, we continue to hear so many stories of God’s protection and faithfulness despite the hardships/tragedies of war. People are often turning to Jesus when faced with these life and death situations.

A special prayer time blessing is given to each person and pastor couple as we send them back to their service/ministry. We really can feel the Lord’s presence and anointing over them.

Please pray that God will continue to guide and protect them.
