Here are the people before the start of the seminar. It was filling up nicely. Pastor Jan was not sure how many would come and was very pleased with the response.
PW preaching about the differences.
Worship team at the Lord is our banner Christian center. Great worship every time.
An engaged congregation. So much fun to worship with them.
The youngest attendee at our seminar. Adorable to say the least.
PW teaching on the Role of the Husband
Our translator Michael had to take a phone call in the middle of the teaching. Such fun.
Our friends Pastor Jan and Barbara Sharbek
Our precious friend Mary Jill Callery - missionary for over 25 years
Our wonderful translator and Assistant Pastor to Jan, Michael Wielgus
At the end of the seminar on Saturday we had a time of Q and A. This is always our favorite part
Today PW preached a powerful sermon on the Lord's Supper and things we can learn from it, taken out of 1 Corinthians. It was one of those times that he had no idea what he was preaching before he got to Church and the Lord downloaded this to him during the worship time. I cannot wait to post the sermon link since it was really that anointed.
After service we went to a Jewish Cafe for lunch. The cafe owner, Jerry, is a secular Jew but God is working in his life through believers from Jan's Church.
Here is a little video of Sherry dancing with Jerry to the Jewish song - It was a spontaneous thing and so much fun. He is a delightful man whom God has targeted for Salvation. He is very open to the believers.
The time was profitable and we look forward to hearing what the Lord did in the lives of those who attended in the months to come. We were able to pray for many couples after the service today also.
Tonight Jan and Barbara are having a prayer meeting here at their home that we get to participate in and then tomorrow we rest up for our time in Ukraine and also fellowship with our friends here.
We have been invited to come back in July to speak at the family camp. Please pray for us to discern God's perfect will in all of this.
These precious people have become family to us and we are sad to leave them. Isn't God amazing that he would connect two little old people like us from Ohio with saints over in a far country.? And the best part we all get to spend eternity together because of our shared faith in Christ.
Thanks again to Pastor Bill and Edie Bradshaw and our CCF Church family for allowing us to come and minister. We continue to need prayer for wisdom and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit as we head to Ukraine. We will keep you posted.
Much love to you all,
PW and Sherry
