The EU pastor’s conference in Siegen was such a blessing. God poured out on these men, so many who are going through the challenges of ministry in a foreign and/or atheistic culture. We enjoyed leading worship and fellowshipping with them.
We had a fruitful time in Cyprus. We gave a worship seminar both weekends we were there. On the first Wednesday evening, Bruce taught the church on forms of worship. Then on Sunday, Bruce gave a stirring message on worship from Heaven’s perspective. People really responded afterwards. It was such a joy to see!
On the Wednesday before we left for Germany, we led an afterglow. God moved so powerfully in our midst during out corporate times there. What a blessing to see people freed up to show their love and surrender to Jesus in worship.
The Cypriates (people of Cyrpus) are going through an economic crisis, as their bank accounts were emptied when they woke up last March. You can see the effects of this everywhere. The church there is working together, feeding and meeting other needs of the poor. Of course, the greatest need there is their need for Jesus. There’s very little biblical Christianity there. It’s mostly Greek Orthodox.
We enjoyed seeing a bit of the island. It was warm and sunny most of the time we were there, and we enjoyed every minute of it.Our thanks to Tim and Darlene Mattox for being such wonderful hosts and friends~
Now that we’re back in Siegen, we are hopefully going to move into our new place. It should be the beginning of March. It will be so good to have our own home again …it’s been since October that we have been staying with others. We are so thankful for the gracious hospitality we’ve been shown.
There are several things coming up in March. Bruce will be doing some tea
ching, and we will be helping with worship. Hopefully, we will take the month of March and get all moved in and settled.
You can pray for our health. We got “bit” by a coughing bug, and have been hacking away. It’s hard to preach, instruct, and sing while coughing. We want to be available for God to use us anyway He desires, but we have to be healthy~!
My hope is in You Lord All the day long. I won’t be shaken by drought or storm. My hope is in You Lord!
