Hallelujah. Praise the name of the Lord. We really appreciate your intercessory prayers and offerings.
I participated in the mission team to Ukraine and Slovakia, sent on Sept. 4. Last December I felt I had missed the team to Czech, so when it was announced that the team would be sent to Ukraine and Slovakia, I started to pray right away whether I was called to join in the team. In the meantime, while I had another issue to pray about, my wish to go on that mission trip faded away. However, when I started to pray for the team again, I felt the Lord prompting me to go, so I signed up for it. The following day I got my index finger cut and was treated at urgent care, getting five stitches. This injury gave me a confirmation to move forward for the given mission although I was not so enthusiastic about participating in the mission team when I signed up for it.
TLCCC NY Church also has a work of NY Mission was told to get involved in the mission to South Middle America and Europe This time I was able to respond to that by participating in the mission team to Europe for the first time. I wanted to receive the specific word from God regarding the work of NY Mission. On the first dawn prayer meeting at Ukraine, we took turns to read the scripture for the day; my turn to read fell on the Acts Chapter 26, verses 17 & 18:” I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you. …” When I read this aloud, I felt that scripture strongly spoke to my spirit.
By joining in the team, I understood that the mission work belongs to God and that there are people who would wait for us to come. I praise the Lord for the manifested work as the team listened to and obeyed Him.
Please continue to pray for us that we could obey God’s will in NY.
