We just completed three (3) days of meetings at Renaissance Church in Ternopil, Ukraine. Our theme for the weekend was FAITH. There was a large contingent of pastors from as far as Kiev – all hungry for truth. We experienced supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit and “high caliber” teaching of the Word.
Like the churches of Macedonia (2 Co. 8:1-3), the churches in the Ukraine are enduring a “great trial of affliction” and “deep poverty,” Ternopil has been hit harder than any place in the Ukraine. Times are tough but they are enduring, standing in faith and shouting the victory. Our meetings were filled with hope and overflowing with encouragement.
Renaissance Church completed a youth camp this summer with over 180 young people: most were unchurched and gave their lives to Christ for the first time. So, there is significant momentum happening and great expectation for what the Lord will do throughout this nation. We are blessed to be a part of this move of God.
We had the opportunity to minister at two other churches in the city of Lviv. Both are shaking and moving in God.
In a nation wrestling with adversity and war at their border to the east and internal corruption and economic instability, the church of God is rising above it all victorious. Thank you for continuing to stand with our brothers and sisters in the Ukraine.
