Lutsk – Concert #2

IMG_6511

Michael Gott led a devotional this morning that was probably the most personally encouraging that I have ever heard. I know he was preaching to me. But as I looked around the room and heard the sniffles (in addition to my own), I could tell the words resounded with my brothers and sisters as well.

We had a bumpy ride today on the way to Lutsk. The last third of the journey the roads reminded me of the farm to market roads of Van Zandt County. But the trip was well worth it. The crowd was engaged right from the start.

Once again, it was a packed house (seats 775) with people standing along the side walls. Michael’s sermon was on Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” NKJV‬‬

Once again, the gospel was plainly and energetically shared. Decisions made to follow Christ: 456. Hallelujah!

Michael shared before getting off the bus that we can spend a lifetime in ministry and not experience something like we experienced in Lutsk. The connection with the audience was immediate and opened further doors for ministry there in that city. In four months they will come back to lead a children’s ministry. When Valera Shchervina, our Gott local administrator, stood and led them in the Ukrainian national anthem, it was incredibly moving. Following that up with a moment of silence for those who lost their lives in the conflict was poignant. Keep praying. It is felt and appreciated.

  1. “To the King, eternal, immortal, invisible…We bring honor, we bring glory, we bring praises, forever and ever, amen.” We sang that last night and thought about you and prayed for you. God is on the move, first in your hearts, then in the hearts of those who need Him.”Like a mighty rushing wind”, may His Spirit enfold you and fill the room. Rough roads, huh? We have one for you to ride in Zimbabwe! Praying that they smooth out a bit, but if they don’t hang on – Texans are hard to be bucked off. Blessings all yours and 10,000 beside.
