The Singing Men of Texas are now back to Zhytomyr after a great concert in Berdichev. This is one of the smaller cities we will sing in or have ever been to in any of our trips before. The concert hall was like many of the others and was nearly filled tonight with close to 1,000 people. We were warmly greeted by the pastor of the local church where we had another fantastic dinner prepared by some wonderful people. ( I think it is a universal thing that Baptist can just flat cook and they can eat as well. We are not going hungry.)
This morning Bro Michael delivered another home run with his message to us. It was a word of hope to each of us about a very special promise God has made to each one of us. In the 2nd chapter of Joel God tells us that he will restore the years that the locust have eaten. It was a message of encouragement to all of us that God still has many plans for us regardless of the stage of life we are in, or even if we feel like we have wasted years in our past.
We won’t know the decision number from tonight concert till tomorrow. I will post them as I can. Jan Gott has provided us a WiFi device today and and I can now connect more freely as we travel.
Tomorrow we travel to Rivne for back to back concerts and then on to L’viv. We will finally be in one hotel in L’viv which will help some of our logistics. The Mission Partners have been in one hotel and the choir in another.
Our Ukrainian photographer is once again Antonina Kreposniak. She is a top notch photographer as well as a Pedetrician by profession. I have posted a few pictures from Wednesday’s Zhytomyr concert on the Flickr page that you can access to the right on this page. As we can we will add more photos there.
I have enjoyed reading the comments that so many are posting. I’m sure many of our team will see them as we travel and for sure when they return home. You encourage us with your messages of love and support. Thank you.
Pray for us tomorrow. It will be a long travel day. Pray for our safety on the roads. Pray for stamina for another back to back concert routine. Pray for our mission partners who are the front line ministry for this mission. Pray they have some divine encounters. We could not do this without them.
We recorded this morning’s devotional and will try to do this going forward. We may not be able to share everyone, but I asked Michael and he did not mind us posting this. It is below if you would like listen or watch. It is a great word for each of us and the church.
Thanks for your prayers and support. Keep them coming, it’s getting good!
