Ministry in Odessa, Ukraine
I just thought I’d send a quick report to you in respect of the ministry I’ve just had in Ukraine.
The flights were good and no luggage was lost – just a long wait of 5 hours at Kiev airport. The day coming back to UK was equally long with lengthy delays, but the Apostle Paul still had it rougher than we have.
The first day of ministry in Odessa was exhausting but it bore great fruit. On the Saturday I had 6 hours of evangelism training with a large group of Ukrainian Christians that was so well received by many who are new believers. They learn quickly and put things into action immediately.
I had two services at which to minister on Sunday morning to about 1,200 people – so many came to the Lord with many first time decisions. On Sunday night we had a large healing meeting where I was told I prayed for over three hundred people in an hour – individually. You don’t get away with praying for Slavic people en masse. So we had to get them up in groups of 15 at a time to minister to them. In this way it was easy to see how God was touching them and they were receiving so well from Him. They are so hungry for God that they are like “vacuums” just sucking all they can from Him. So many sick and ailing people came up for prayer. It was terrific to see the Holy Spirit in action being drawn in by these people’s deep hunger. There were testimonies from similar meetings I had from two and three years back, of healings and needs met supernaturally, and some immediate testimonies from that meeting. Wow God worked fast.
