Sunday and a Wonderful family

Today was our last Sunday to worship with the most wonderful church family alive. We are so very blessed by our congregation. They are true Christ followers from the littlest to the oldest.
We are close to reaching our goal so please keep praying. God has always provided every penny we need for these trips and we are expecting Him to do the same. Where he leads he provides has been our motto and it has proven true. We are now working on our food budget money.
The plan is to study tomorrow and all day Tuesday. We still have to put our seminar on paper so that is what we are working on at the moment.
Please pray for the following:
Time to do what needs to be done before we leave.
Health for our whole family. PW's mom has been under the weather and we would like to see her better before we leave.
The rest of the finances we need.
Our Assoc. Pastor Bill will be caring for the church while we are gone and needs prayer since he also works a full time job. The added responsibility always add to his already full load.
Members of our church - that God watches over them and keeps them healthy and safe.
Our flights to be on time and PW's and Sherry's luggage to arrive with them at each destination.

Our week

Last Thursday we had the privilege of speaking
to this group of Church planters on the topic of Developing a strong ministry marriage.

A huge blizzard has hit our area with over 12 inches of snow.
You can see our car which is stuck half out in the street and the other half in the road. PW is cheerfully clearing our drive. This has been a week of car troubles. On Tuesday Sherry's car broke down and is sitting in a parking lot waiting to be towed to the car dealer.

9 Days and counting

Wherever does time go? It seems like a year ago that we began thinking about this trip and here we are with only 9 days left . So you need a prayer update. We still have not reached our goal for financial needs but it is trickling in so please continue to pray for this. We need enough money to pay for our food and also a little extra for emergencies and unexpected expenses which always pop up.

We also could use continued prayer as we work on our new Divorce Recovery Seminar. Ministry needs here have kept us quite busy and therefore we have not had adequate time to prepare this seminar the way we would like. God is so faithful though and we know that he will guide and direct our teachings. Anyway, please keep those two needs in prayer.

Can you feel the shift in the atmosphere? With all the wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes taking place it definitely is getting exciting. What an honor it is to live in this season of history. We want to challenge you to preach the word of God to everyone you meet. Time is of the essence and who knows when we will hear that shout and hear that trumpet calling us home.
It is time to repent of any sins that have you in bondage and to start living a dedicated life to our Lord if you are not already doing so.

Grace and Peace,
PW and Sherry

4 weeks

Wow it is hard to believe that we will be on our way in just 4 weeks. We are busily working on our final preparation for our new seminar on Divorce Recovery. Divorce is such a huge problem in Ukraine and many of the people to whom we minister have been divorced and are hurting so badly. So this time we are offering a seminar with topics like overcoming the pain of divorce, how to deal with betrayal, how to overcome the anger, how to forgive, can you remarry biblically and if so when will you know you are ready for a new relationship, how to help your children, the importance of biblical reconciliation and what does it actually mean. These are just a few of the topics we will teach on during our seminar.

We are also going to be ministering on marriage and family at a local church Bible School every evening and both weekends. So between our daytime seminar on divorce and the evening teachings on marriage we will be busy. We are also ministering on Feb. 17 to a group of local church planters on How to have a strong marriage in ministry.

Between this and our local church responsibilities you can see why we need much prayer. We covet your prayers because we need Gods anointing to do what we do. Financially we still need $400 to pay for the expenses of this trip. Please add this to your prayer requests for us. Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us.

God Bless you all as you serve our soon returning Lord and Savior.

Pastor Wayne and Sherry
