Republic of Georgia Update


March has been an exciting month for us.

Baptism of a Trinitarian Pastor in Rivne, Ukraine
At the beginning of  this month, I was able to attend some important training in Rivne, Ukraine. I want to say thank you to all of  our field account partners for making that possible. Upon return to Georgia, we instituted the Revival By Design program into our Bible school and have already begun the planting of three new churches. We are also taking our current congregation through this training and will be ready to launch five additional works by June 2012.

Living Hope UPC, 30th Anniversary
I was also privileged to visit the USA for the 30th anniversary of Living Hope UPC in St. Mary’s, MD (my home church). While there I also visited Living Hope UPC, D.C.. I want to say thank you to both congregations for their great support and friendship. I also want to say a special thank you to the D.C. congregation and all that gave to the offering. we are getting ready to baptize our first person in the portable baptistry you all bought for us.

 Prayer Focus: 

Spiritual freedom from the spirit of  Heaviness

Open doors into the targeted communities

A central training facility

A bus for church use

Into the Future:

In April, we are beginning the Harvest phase of  our targeted outreach. The last two weeks have been filled with prayer, fasting, and spiritual warfare. It is exciting to see the Bible school students putting their teaching into action. I watch as they continue to grow in faith and power. God is truly opening doors into the harvest. I look forwosd to being able to give you a great report next month of  what God has done here in Georgia.
