Polished Arrows and Various Snowy Pictures

While there is time here are some photos I swiped from several team members Facebook pages today. Of course everyone has enjoyed the snow. There is also a shot of the road from last night to help you feel our pain so to speak.

Had a great devotional with Michael this morning. He spoke to us from Isaiah 49:1-3. He challenged us to see ourselves as God does, his polished arrows.  God’s purpose in us being in Ukraine is like the choice arrows, the polished ones in the archers quiver. The special ones that were used in key battles.  God has gifted us all and has placed us here at this very moment for this very reason,  To penetrate the hard, cold hearts of those we minister. We are commanded to use our weapons to bring down the enemy. That is our prayer today.

Something else he encouraged with is this statement about the importance of prayer and where the victories come from; “How many victories that we have seen on this trip are the result of one of the senior adult ladies at your church with arthritic knees that agreed to pray daily for this trip?”

We leave the hotel in about 45 minutes to head to the concert hall. Enroute we will see some of the city and its people as we take a brief city bus tour.  Pray that our arrows will be used of the Lord tonight.

  2. Blessings on this evening’s concert. God is working, and He’s using you! the snow is pretty, but I’m sure it’s cold, too.

  3. I love the snow pictures so much. Thanks for posting. Isaiah 1:18 says “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow”. Just as your snow pictures are beautiful , so are we even though we are sinful. The pictures are simple but full of beauty – what an awesome reminder of what Christ death did for us.

  4. These are such a blessing to me! I am praying and sharing. Take care of Ralph for me!
