We both had trouble sleeping last night so we would appreciate prayer concerning our sleep. the jet lag is very bad this time.
This morning we had the privilege of worshiping with our brother and sisters in the Russian Pentecostal Church. The service was very interesting. The women in this church wear head coverings, the people are very restrained and do not smile much and the worship is not expressive, buttttttttttttttttttttttt they love God and when they prayed they went on and on for 15 to 20 mins at a time with everyone praying at once. The worship lasted 30 mins then a man got up and preahced for 40 mins on the Blood of Christ and what it means to us. His text was from Hebrews 12. When he finished there were several special solos sung and then another brother got up and preached for 40 mins and then there was another song. The pastor then got up and preached for 15 mins on communion and then the choir sang chants while the communion was passed. First bread and then a common cup of wine. When that was over 4 different men came up and prayed for different areas of concern in the body and then testimonies were given and finally at 1;30 we were released. The pastor invited us to come to a meal prepared for us downstairs and so we joined the guest speakers and the pastor for a delicious meal and fellowship. We are home for 10 mins and will leave here to go to Riga to see the old city and then have pizza, which makes Wayne very happy, and then we will come back to get ready for tomorrow. All in all it has been a very intersting day. Praying for all of our church family at CCF that God will meet with you today and touch your hearts in a special way.
Love, Wayne and Sherry

Sorry to hear you're both struggling with jet lag and had poor sleep last night. Andre, the kids and I are all going to pray for you right now since it is almost 9:00 p.m. there and you should be going to sleep soon!

Thank you for the wonderful description of the service in the Pentecostal church there. What a wonderful experience to worship with the believers there! Pastor Bill read your message to CCF this morning. Everyone was glad to get your update!

We enjoyed a good time of worship this morning, followed by a challenging sermon on the sovereignty of God from Romans 9. Pastor Bill did an excellent job!!!!

How timely for us ladies doing the Bible study with you, Sherry. We studied God's sovereignty with you last week then with Pastor Bill this morning. God is at work!!

We all shared communion and Pastor Bill tied in beautifully his sermon and God’s amazing mercy on us.

We had good fellowship after the service today. Dale brought pretty white table cloths for the hospitality tables. Everything looked beautiful!

No visitors today that I saw. Mae was there though and walking very well! And Dale brought all three grandkids. It was good to have them there.

Praying for you every day!

Love, Lisa
